huh, no, missed that Rob.  But it's clear that the engineers who made  
the drawing assumed
the colornaut would be working in Primaries (the switch is in PRI in  
the drawing) but in practice,
as shown in the reality of the photo, the switch is in SEC.

If anyone can figure out what panel 13 is meant for...   the main  
rotary control says
"Alt Set" but goes only up to 300, so not sure if it can be an  
altimeter control.  There's
a switch to the left of it "Earth / Lunar"  which just might be a very  
important switch to
have set correctly.

Finally, colorists who have always wanted the capability, finally have  
with this design of 40+
years ago, a THRUST switch, to go along with the Float Bag.
