Another area I wanted to improve on was the cockpit. Don't get me wrong, I'm not entering any scale competitions, but I wanted the cockpit to be interesting when people look in. TY did a great job on the kit. The bad part about the ARF is the cockpit isn't very scale. So you need to compensate for the space differences. When you look at a real airacobra, there is not much room in there. Gauges, wires, knobs everywhere. The seat in this cockpit is a little too wide, but is needed to accommodate a pilot. This make it hard to put detail in where it needs to go.

To dress it up a little bit, I added a few more instruments myself, along with some stickers I painted up. I may add a little more before she flies.

Here are some shots of some panels lines on the tail, along with some of the panel bolts.

I also made a radio box, and added in some volt meters for my receiver and ignition. I still have some more detail to add, along with detail for the wires to plug into. I also started adding the green chromate to the undersides. There's not much more that needs to be done on the body now. She's ready for paint.
