A Cockpit mod of the Thirdwire Scooter's cockpit, to create the North Vietnam-modified Mig-17F cockpit for use in the standard Thirdwire Mig-17F.


The Mig-17F was the main combat variant in the Vietnam war and Middle East and scored many victories.


Referenced from multiple color photos and cockpit layout diagrams.


Instruments and placards moved, eliminated, repainted and painted from scratch.


Individual instruments in Russian as they were historically.


Yes, it correctly has the artificial horizon correctly Soviet-color-reversed, upside down-working (I even flew an ex-Soviet fighter that had this).


Campared to the similar earlier Mig-15bis cockpit many additions were made:


1. The Russians added the rearview mirror as standard. Apparently on the previous Mig-15, it created too many technical problems to include.




2. -The temperature gauge was changed according to some photos to add a big colorful half red circle and they eliminated the colorful rainbow gauge casing around it.


3. -They added a large red canopy handle according to some photos (very colorful and distinctive!).


4. The instrument panel rivets started having long screw driver holes in them according to some photos!


5. The Russians also added a large shiny, silver casing to the clock below the artificial horizon...perhaps a graduation present from flying the earlier Mig-15!


6. Two more buttons and a toggle switch were added to the instrument panel coaming.


7. Finally, the American-style six diamond gunsight reticle replaced the old British-style round circle.




Complete credits and history in readme.
