Some time in the next couple of days I'll download the pics and go through
them.  Probably just put them up somewhere for viewing.  The later 1-26 in the
Schweizer gallery was on a mount that was kind of like a trailer with no
wheels.  There wasn't an easy way to get at the canopy and I just didn't get
back there (with help) to open it up.  I'll write Peter and see if I can him
to send me something.  They might even have a detailed cockpit photo in the
collection.  Also, they probably have some info on the undercarriage.

I'm glad you can use that 3-view.  It looked good to me, especially with the
cross section detail.
