I know those pin stripe graflex flashguns are hard to find. I lucked out finding one that was stripped by a lightsaber builder.
I scratch built the aluminium control pannel. Was about the hardest part to make.

Everything looks great so far! From what I see there, you miss the Glenross dental expansion screw which was glued/screwed to the aluminum plate:
I know we have talked about the 3 clear parts, but I will need the following measurement to have a starting point for the size of the items:
There is another missing piece on the aluminum plate, which is part of the MQ-1 calculator, but it is hard to tell which part; I think this is the best candidate (you'll have to cut down the lower half part):
Can't wait to see more of this build!
Always love what you do bro!i know this will come out ACE!
Looking forward to this......
This area I have circled, clearly is glue residue we know this, but upon closer inspection this glue residue is a perfect match when compared to the back of the MQ-1 "Reset" piece's back or flat area.
Another finding I think is interesting if you line up the "Reset-MQ-1" piece with the glue marks the drill hole we see on the far right is visible. I physically placed the MQ-1 Reset piece on the screen and again the hole and the glue marks are a perfect match.
Drill hole on the far right .................... opening where drill hole would be visible. ?
Adding more pics of this MQ-1 Reset piece

Great! Thanks for the measurements and the extra images for the MQ-1 piece. Thanks to you I was able to guesstimate the correct MQ-1 part, as you had plenty images with the calculator disassembled in your Pre-Pro #2 thread.

now that is cool. Never seen those extra parts on the aluminium control plate before. Think I need a couple of small upgrades to mine now
Assembled the side greeblies using the Paterson Chemical Stirrer, Michell Engineering Spike and the Rotring Sec-O-Mat. I used JB weld to glue it all together.
Cut the flash tube to correct length
Added flat black paint.
painted the rear release trigger white two or three times the a coat or two with bright red nail polish
Amazing work that is very much appreciated Levi. Thanks Brother
