While it might not be a bad place to put a compass, what I'm looking at
can't be a compass. It's an instrument with the face is 90* to the horizon.
A compass has to be level. And it doesn't look like G's asci sketch of what
a compass would look like mounted to be viwed from 90* to it's axis.
However, the pictures G sent off list clearly show an instrument monted
there so I know how to deal with it on the model.
But now I'm wondering what instrument would be mounted there? A fuel gauge
would make sense is it had a tank in the top wing. A tach could be put there
but why? The panel would be easier. It's not important for my purposes, just
Any thoughts from the learned group?
