Cockpit will have some options to do. First at all, mostly they have one type gun sight but there is another one, with two glass plate. Mostly they are positioned in far rear position, behind rails but one photo show it on rails. Will see, I think I will do most common version with gun sight in far rear position.

I think that basic development is almost completed and some adaptations and updates will be made in regard to particular sample airplane I plan to do. So next step will be service stencils and national insignia, I hope today :))

P.S. just note- I forget exhaust tube under engine cowling :-wall :-kr

I acknowledge that. You are focused on something and then something else is overlooked. Really nice work by the way.

Excellent profile!

Joe Foss was the governor of his home state, South Dakota, and the former Sioux Falls Army Airfield was named after him when it became the civilian airport.
