Mixture quadrant and chassis controller are done. The mixture quadrant kit will come with the silver body. That is not right scale, but it will be cheaper.

Finally I started works on the cockpit floor. It will take some hour to put together the stripes, but I hope, the result will be great.

Cockpit floor master is almost finished. The primer paint helps me to find the holes and scratches in the surface.

Iīm very happy today. Iīve done the first cockpit from our cockpit kit!! We decided to list the cockpit kit without the pilotīs seat, because Covid-19 outbreak caused delay of their production. But the seatīs will come soon!

Iīve done the first pair of the wing pylons. They are figreglasss, so they are very light. No extra weight or load of the wings.

Hi Prekin,

Your work is excellent. Are you selling the P47 cockpit? If so how much and do you ship to the US?

I am working on Razorback Jug, but I didnīt forget about bubble canopy Jug lover. I revised the gunsight K-14 which was only in the late Bubble version.
Here are some shots of the 3D design. Ready made K-14 will come soon.
