The Wing Fighter from Star Wars part 17? Assault of the Zylons? Nooo, totally wrong, this is the so called glare-shield which is installed above the pilots instruments. Integrated in it are red and white illumination lights. Underneath the bumps left and right are the light regulators, the rheostats.
It was not easy to get red lightbulbs of this size but with some pieces of color film for stage lights did the job too.

The first computer is ready. Let's see what the dual core pentium is able to do. The front cover is painted in "Connie Avionics" black. The computers will be installed in the radio rack and take the place of the radios which were installed there in the early days.

Oh... Doctor, what is it...? Congratulations! It's a pedal.... Quadruplets to be precise. Of course all the mechanics for steering and braking is still missing but it will come soon.
