I guess that little else than what you mentioned and a big purse full
of good intentions.
You can also add a tube gauge for the fuel tank, a dial as the
tachometer, an oil pulsator, and perhaps a switch for the magneto. I
guess that you can find a bit of inspiration in the Bristol Monoplane
(also designed by Coanda) and the Antoinette, that seemed to have a
similar fuselage but had a completely different engine (so most
controls won't relate!)
