One of my favorite things to look at in an airplane is the cockpit, regardless of nationality or era. All of the intricacy and evolving design fascinates me. For that reason, I especially enjoy working on the cockpits in my builds, even thought they will be obscured to various extents when finished. Similarly, I love looking at the work others have put into theirs. I thought it might be worthwhile for us to share the cockpits of our various builds in one place, as opposed to digging into the various WIP's out there. To get things started, here are a few of mine:

I love pits!  One of the coolest areas you can model IMHO. Tons of chances for detailing additions.

 

A few of my favorites..............

Given the amazing work shown thus far, if there isn't a minimum quality standard, I'd offer my Revell F-4 cockpit.

I put a lot into to it to have more than six sides and an open view into the body of the model.

There is a lot of scratchbuilding to create a COMPLETE cockpit, more so than an accurate one.

This is meant to be a conversion of a recon Phantom I bought at a toy liquidators for seven bucks to an F-4E , many years ago.

Cool idea. awesome work everyone! I also love cockpits and trying to dress them up. It's really the heart of the whole aircraft. This is the only one for which I have photos. It's the Airfix 1/24 Mustang cockpit stepped up a bit.

All great examples, guys!! I'm consistently bad with pits. Used to try to paint/detail, sometimes painting/stripping 6-6 times. Now they get one and done, I will spend time on the seat, though. Confession time, some of the builds in the display case have all black pits....EVERYTHING!!!
