Put it on a pedestal
The center console on C-2s and E-2s is called the “Pedestal” it has throttle, propeller condition levers, avionics and radio controls, flaps, gear and arresting hook. The one in the kit is adequate, especially given what will be seen once the fuselage is closed, but having spent hundreds of hours mucking about with and repairing things on and in the pedestal, I had to detail it up, including clear gear handle and hook handle, which on the real aircraft have lights in them. And tonights brew…well a local brewery and you gotta laugh at the name. Quite good though Bobba says thumbs up!
