Another twist on the Ovington Bailer Upgrade….
In the cockpit pics you may notice a round bar welded across the top of the bailers. (prior to fibre glassing the bailers in as was with both Milne fit outs)
This (pictured) is when the bailer is fully down, the bar restricts the bailer handle from going any further back.
To close the bailer the handle only moves 30 degrees forward and it is up! Simply done by foot- an arch of a matter of 40mm or thereabouts.
I happened on this only by mistake when I was looking to mimic the Vials/Turner arrangement as seen on Datchet Man.
I simply ran out of time to fit it and also decided to squeeze in all of the 18.5 kg’s of lead on the front inside of the console making things very tight.
I had purchased the blocks and fittings but simply don’t see the need.
