The cockpit area consists of an inner and outer tub. Based on my own observations even though there are decals provided for the cockpit instrument panels, once the cockpit is closed up you will not see these panels. The cockpit being all black does not help the cause either. In that case, I decided to skip the decals. I did, however, decide to add some red details using a pin and a nail polish dot applicator. I really doubt these will be seen.
Inner tub was then assembled.
Followed by the outer assembly. Just a few small details to put on and paint.
Assembled. As you can see, the cockpit is almost invisible.
