Emergency manual hydraulic pump and plumbing were replicated of a brass tube and brass wire.
The electric cables were replicated by the same method, too.

Fuel tank door handle was replicated.

I have broken a foot ladder pedal part, and scratched build it.

Drilled the punching holes and put the photoetched parts "AA-3 1:72 IJN Aircraft Seat belt Set #2" from Finemolds.

Put the seat to the rear bulkhead. I remade the seat adjustment lever more sharply.

I painted the parts, and replicated the white soft wire which hung the suspension arms.
