I got this kit dirt cheap as well. Bought the True Details Ejection Seats. Does anyone know what interior would work with this kit in terms of aftermarket panels? Listed above is Zoukei-Mura. Just for shits and giggles I'm going to spend some time turning this into something nice. I haven't checked to see if the connecting part between the canopies is there. Guess I better do that first. Anyway, if anyone knows what PE pannel would work on this (i've checked all Italeri products and nothing) would you be able to give me a heads up. Enjoying this site so far, amazing resource.

Thank you very much, sir. I'm going to get one and do some custom fitting. Thanks a million!

Great idea. I was thinking of making whatever cuts and modicifations to an existing resin cockpit and retrofitting. I may just put a better cockpit in, though historically incorrect, for the sake of better detail. The idea of putting water slide decals on the panel just doesn't do it for me. Thank you guys very much. This website is an invaluable asset for gathering good intel from other modelers. Even if I have to burn some money to find out what works, I'm gonna do it. Perhaps fitting a resin cockpit and adding Eduard panel details. Now that I'm retired, I have nothing but time. Thanks fellas.

So I got this kit for a really good price on a sale table (for $8). After I thoroughly inventoried the parts, I found it was missing the clear part between the front and back seats. I guess I know why I got is so cheap. Anyone have this old kit that they are using as a parts kit? I could sure use the part. TIA

Should be eight dollars..not sure where the smily face came from.......

That's interesting - I picked up an old Esci 1:72 ANG Phantom II (still sealed) and the same part was missing!
