Not much changed between 1946 and 1960, although "undercarriage" was replaced with "retractable landing gear", the "sliding structure" was succeeded by a fixed, enclosed cockpit, the aerial mast and wire was replaced with a single radio antenna mast, the "static tube" became the "pitot-static tube", "trimming tabs" became just "tabs" and no mention of radial engines.
