Cockpit

Some pictures of where I am with the cockpit so far: I hate these warts-an-all blown up photos, the weathering/shading never seems to come out properly! :roll: Rob, where can I get a decent seat harness for the mossie in 1:24th? http://www.pete-coleman.com/mossie/web/cpa.jpg http://www.pete-coleman...
