While that step completes this issue, I am a bit disappointed with the lack of detail on these parts. The image below is from the restored real Ecto-1 and you can clearly see numbers, buttons, and displays that are missing from the stock parts. Luckily, I heard that Mike Lane will be including sticker upgrades for these parts in his upcoming Ecto-1 Decal Set. As soon as it is available, I will return to this issue and add them here!
This was a simple issue to assemble. I like them quick and easy!

One thought on “STAGE 63”
Totally agree. The lack of detail on these parts is very disappointing, considering the detail used on the UHF signal & powerdistribution unit & peripheral device. I think I will be purchasing the stickers from Mike Lane when they are available & making my own switches somehow.
