HP Halifax information

As I am working on a vacform Halifax in our favorite scale as seen in this forum, a lot of detailed information is needed. I am lucky to have my own full size Halifax cockpit section built over a periode of 14 years. Using hundreds of copies of the original drawings as well as as many parts and fittings I could find this is the result. It is supposed to present a fully fitted out Mk III cockpit. Together with a friend of mine, a very skilled metal worker, it was built from aluminium to a high standard.
