    was looking through our aftermarket stuff stash for a Quickboost seat I bought some time ago, when my dad told me he found a full True Details cockpit for the Hunter in another stash

    so let´s see how that turns out...

    The tru details cockpit looks wonderful, my friend @grimreaper! If I recall well, it is stated that the Academy cockpit is undersized, so the True Details cockpit should take care of things.

    so, finally enough free space to start this project
    testfitted the resin cockpit into the fuselage, fit is good
    the right sidewall is an extra part, the rest of the cockpit tub is in one piece

    already painted all the cockpit parts black
    but although my dad washed/degreased and primed the resin, the paint was removed when he started to drybrush the instruments and touched the parts too much
    also the CA glue didn´t connect well with the resin

    my dad decided to use the cockpit tub and IB from the kit, sidewall panels and seat from True Details
    washed the resin parts again, for now the paint and CA glue holds
