Oh well, I didn't think the B pillars were so evident from the inside...
My conscience won't feel good if I don't do it, so here it is, made the pillars with styrene sheet, it was very time consuming, but it's totally worth it.

I have a Revell 1/32 UH-1D in the cabinet, started build but never finished for more than 20 years. Maybe I can resume someday after I see your build here. May I suggest you add the wall thickness to your helicopter since it it obvious if the cabin doors are going to be opened. Here’s my neglected helo.


Would you be able to share your scaled down stock file of the seats?

Looks really nice!
I will have to search the scaled down file, I don't remember where I saved it, I will send it once I find it.

noticed in some pictures the first aid kits hanging from the pillars, so I printed them, I need to paint them olive drab and make the little red cross.
At first I thought it was too small, but after looking at references, I think they are alright.

This project will have a lot of 3D printed parts, especially in the cockpit, I found some free files on the internet and got the help of a friend to really improve the cockpit. 
This file has 4 important things, the collectives, the seats, the pedals and cyclic. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4725031

I had to scale them down on the printer slicing software, but the details on these pieces are astonishing and really improves the cockpit over the old and thick plastic parts of the kit.

Also, a friend of mine is lending me a hand in designing some seatbelt buckles for this build, he has amazing skills.

Well, Finally all the finishing touches to the cockpit...
UV Resin to simulate the glass on the instrument bezels, seatbelts, and pilot seats glued in place.
I made the seatbelts using thin masking tape and painted them with gray blue Vallejo model air paint
