  3. Hi Jon We may need @longshanks, @Chewbacca or @Ex-FAAWAFU for final technical advice here all of whom have had professional experience. I think that Part 28 (Black Cat resin parts) is a Compass Binnacle which in this instance happens to have a wheel attached. My understanding is that this is the primary steering compass The pelorus is a compass that allows you take azimuth bearings Here's the arrangement taken from my "Manual of Seamanship Vol 1" 1951 (cheap as chips on Ebay and full of relevant info) I think the instructions indicating 2 x 28 (Compass binnacles) is wrong. Part 29 is the Pelorus (of which there are 2) There are 2 uncredited resin printed pieces ahead of 29 and adjacent to the vents (26). These may represent the engine telegraphs as indicated above And with all this said - you are unlikely to see very much through the windows. HTH And BTW - you are shaming me resurrecting this blog which has stalled Rob
