Hello all! I'm building Trumpeter's 1/48 F-100F, but have noticed three glaring errors in the cockpit that need fixing: 1) No throttles included 2) Front seat should have a split headrest and associated mechanism, but the kit only provides two rear seats 3) The canopy reinforcement spar is totally missing.

I'll be pouring a mold and test fitting the castings in the coming days. More posts to follow... _______________________________________________________________________
