    My favorite part of builing scale plastic models was the ejection seat and cockpit. Does anyone have just this in a larger scale. maybe 1/4 or 1/8. I would love to do a falcon or A-10 cockpit if anyone knows of anything.

    Thank you guys,
    I always love having a community that I can talk up.

    I think cockpits of any era aircraft or Jet make excellent standalone models. Where else could see the detail. You'll have to scratch build one, unless you buy a plastic one, which aren't as detailed as you could fabricate. A great idea. :)

    I absolutely agree with Zathros. Cockpits are grateful models, and engines too:).

    Tonino, that is paper, and it is available. The link is here, and there are at least two other engines available, as well as other models you should check out. ;)

    Thanks Zathros! This is definitely a "must download at any cost"...

    Unfortunately the links to the engines seem to be broken... :( any idea?

    I know I have this model. I have spent 2 hrs. looking for it but cannot find it. It must be on a backup hard drive. I know Sakirson, a member here, and a very nice person and gentleman, has a copy.
