    Okay Yaniv I finally got to look at your file and I gotta tell you I'm very impressed with what you've done so far.

    Here are my suggestions for how to go about the cockpit, first off here is the way you have done the top of the nose in front of the cockpit windows:

    The line I have highlighted in the previous post was used as the basis for the line that I have drawn in screenshot below. Most aircraft have the top of the nose extend into the cockpit and that becomes the top of the instrument panel so it would be wise to find pics of the instrument panel and look at the shape of it cause I might not have done it quite right.

    I then lofted the line I drew in and the previously selcted line and that becomes the top of the nose. Then I use that surface to trim off the bottom of the windscreen, again compare this with the way the original looks.

    This part might make you cry Yaniv but I know I would like to know if my model had a problem so I'm going to show you this one. Remember in my B-25 example about how the windscreen needed to be flat and not twisted? Well you got a little bit of a twist in your windscreen. I extended the line of the middle of the windscreen then copied it and lofted those 2 lines and you can see in the attatched pic that it needs a little tweaking.
