    The grey parts are origin SMER.
    The air-intake-flaps (do you know what I mean?) have I make thinner.
    The cockpit-floor comes 1mm deeper.

    OK

    As next I make a new instrumentboard and complete the cockpit with levers and the stick and so on.

    Can you help me?
    I need good profiles or painting-schemata for the Curtiss Seahawk.

    Thanks

    Hi Trecker,

    Nice build although I would like to ask you how much of the P-47 cockpit did you actually use in order to build the SC-1.

    I have also purchased it and eventhough Aires has done a remarkable job besides the engine's throtlle and a few other small parts I can't really think how I could further use it on my SC-1. For example, the cockpit's instruments panel doesn't much that of the SC-1, at all!

    It's a bit hard to make a surgery on the specific part and achieve a good result.

    Cheers
    Sernak
