BELOW: Another view of the drive.

 

Much of the drive mechanism is missing. It should include a chain attached to gears, cog wheels and a worm drive, together with the associated mechanism for retracting the undercarriage.

BELOW: Another view of the electrical equipment.

 

Just visible inside the case is a small transformer and the socket or valveholder for a thermionic valve (US, 'tube'). The task performed by thermionic valves was handled later by transistors, and then by electronic integrated circuits.
