    These detail sets are not mandatory and they do not preclude you from applying your own skills. 
    If you can achieve this level of detail using your bare hands, there is nothing here for you to worry about.

    Here is more compelling evidence that the device hanging from the canopy frames is the P 120 Peilschriber.

    As you may know, I created the CAD artwork for this model. In this photo one can see some faintly-raised elements on the surface of the part, which also protrude a little beyond the edges of the part. The part, as I designed it, did not feature these elements. The only surface detail was the circular raised detail (front end of the cockpit tub) and the reinforcement strips. I have no explanation for the presence of those elements on the surface, these were added by the tool shop that made the mould, for reasons that I cannot understand (they are not structural, they are not decorative...). 
    I would remove those "bits" protruding over the edges and I would bevel the edges a bit in order to improve the fit of this part into the grooves on the inside of the fuselage.

    There is no known photo of a 262 night-fighter taken by the Germans before the end of the war. All known photos were taken post-war. There is a photo at the bottom of  page 454 of Vol.3 of the Classic Publications series of books on the 262 taken in June 1945, with the aircraft still wearing German crosses, showing that device. If a wartime photo existed it would only prove what that particular aircraft was like. We already know that this device was not present on all aircraft at all times. Absence does not “prove a negative”. (See Lisa Simpson’s Tiger Rock.)

    I still believe it was a Bernhardine printer device. The two links above make a very compelling case. Please read the text in both links. The Bernhardine system consisted of more than just that terminal device hanging under the canopy, it also required some internal equipment (accounted for in original 262 drawings - there are equipment sockets inside the existing aircraft to accommodate it) and some control switches which are clearly present in the cockpit. Also read the references at the  end of each of those pages. The evidence is extremely compelling.

    Wartime photos of the night-fighter cockpit feature “eyelets” welded on the internal canopy frame, right above the radio set, where the mounting brackets for a device like this could be bolted. Whatever this device was, the factory planned for it.

    In as far as I know, that device is a Bernhardine Peilschriber. See this: https://nonstopsystems.com/radio/hellschreiber-modes-other-hell-brnhrdne.htm
    It appears that this device may not have bee present on all aircraft at all times, possibly due to shortages.
