Included in the box was a True Details/Black Box resin cockpit, which is very detailed with lousy instructions. My exposure to resin has been very limited. Need to cut off the instrument comming. BecarfullI!! Use ahorizontal cut or ulse too much will be removed. thought I would start this kit while the paint cures on the M1A2.

Never heard of the "pig" label for the MIGHTY PHANTOM. I've always thought of it as a beast of an airplane.
Anyway, the cockpit top side molding is installed. The resin parts were doubled ad had to be sanded down quite a bit.
The crazy instructions had me using too many parts. They don't match well.I had to print up instructions from the True Details site and pick and choose the right part. Both are pretty crappy and vague. The detail of the parts are very nice. If someone needs cockpit top side parts PM me and I'll mail them to you. They are very small now that they are sanded down. Photo etch would have been better for this. Thanks Gary S. XXXXV XX XX

Never heard it called a pig but we often referred to it as a Hog . It needed a lot of attention to keep it moving :bangs head
