This is Black Box's resin cockpit set for Trumpeter's 1/32 scale F-105G Wild weasel. This is one amazing upgrade set!!!

The only thing I did extra was the instruments - the kit comes with transparencies to put behind their clear plastic panel; the Black Box set comes with nothing - the instruments are molded in. I scanned the transparency at VERY high res and VERY high contrast, and made decals out of them. Yep, cut 'em out individually! :freak:

Now for the REST of the model ... :GASP!:

OH MY GAWD! Dang, John, I was ready to climb into that cockpit.

In the words of Darth Vader, "Impressive, most impressive!"

Wow John, your patience and diligence really paid off! If the rest of the build-up is even close to this, you've got a real winner on your hands! I gotta agree with Num11Blade, the only thing that really gives away the scale is the cloth they're sitting on. Absolutely beautiful! :thumbsup:
