Yes, it is but if I'm not mistaken (I haven't researched any differences between the two cockpits [bubbletop vs. razorback]), I think you might only need to change the aft bulkhead-armor plate...and use the corrugated floor of course.  That and NO INTERIOR GREEN!

Color is Dull Dark Green, and the cockpit set includes the corrugated floor. You would just need to use the kit's back plate. And possibly adjust to fit the Trumpy kit.

The P-47G was made by Curtiss(?) and had an Interior Green cockpit as opposed to all other P-47's.

The MDC cockpit is the way to go!

i have use it 4 times in b.tops,i absolutely agree and i was thinking cuting out dets off it(pumps,levers,consoles,etc)because i don t think it fits Trump straihht in,any opposite knowledge?

Trust me,i ve surch that plane so much i know the route of its pipes!,i know the diffs...but does it fit right in?!(in terms of dimensions)-i see too in excellent builds the wrong int colour,after having difficulty finding ready made d.d.green(w.ensign),i found out Gunze s IJN green is spot on(spraying over the w.e there wasn t even a weathering kind of shade difference,as they were out of the same bottle!)

Dull Dark Green,ready made from White Ensign,or if you can t find it i accidently found that Gunze IJN Green is spot on,there isn t the slightest difference,as they were from the same bottle!,and Zinc Chromate (yellow) every other "inside" part(wheel and gun wells etc)

It's a great set. Used one on a Hasegawa D a few years back. Thinking about getting one to try and use in the Trumpeter Razorback myself.

...and the guys have excellent customer service
