Today it was time for the small parts... I removed the nuts from the windshield frames and polished each one... 280 pieces! Now the inside of the cockpit can be painted and it will certainly look great with all the shiny nuts.
I know, there are some machines that polish such parts in no time but I don't have one. This way I had some work for another 2 hours... I don't want to run out of work ;-)

An important part has been added... the platform for the pilots seats. This time I welded it myself and I think it came out very well, even if I'm still a beginner in welding.
As one can see, I removed the glareshield, the cover above the instrument panels. It will be cleaned, sanded and painted.... black on the top and Lockheed-green on th underside. The illumination regulators will be rewired and the bulbs replaced.
