Here are the JP233s’ from the above link on ebay. They are substantial bits of resin with engraved panel lines. I think a lot will be lost when you have to fit the 2 parts together and the obvious curvature will have to be made flat. 

Couldn’t work out how to post images so just did the links:

Side profile

Top view

Front section

Rear section

 

Alas all links loop back to the top of this page.

If you don't mind adding older aftermarket to the list, there's always the resin Aires cockpit tubs. IIRC correctly they are all designed to go in the REVELL kits and are getting pretty hard to find now.

I'm not sure they are hard to find as I purchased one from Hannants last month (a recently released early GR.1 version). Quick check of their website shows 3 versions available all in reasonable quantity. They are however expensive but I agree the detail is equisite. I tried a test fit on the Italeri and the fit was reasonable (I've had worse on kits Aries ARE designed for) but that was without the nose wheel bay fitted and which interlocks with the kit cockpit. I suspect it may be necessary to remove the resin front floor. As the Italeri pit is itself well detailed, I have decided to detail & display the Aries cockpit alongside (rather than risk wrecking two very pricy models).     

 

Here is what can be achieved with it using ANYZ Models detailing products  https://anyz.io/assets/images/tornado.jpg

JP233 only for GR.1 I think

 

jp233 is basically a mini cluster bomb and land mines, so when they blow up a runway its difficult to repair it as there are landmines everywhere

 

so when the world banned landmines in 1997 (land mine treaty) these were withdrawn from service. So as the first flight of a GR4 was in 1997 they wernt used. However...... in 1998 there were several sorties and testing carried out using empty but weighted jp233 canisters, im not sure why but they happened
