The cockpit looks really nice!

However, *cracks knuckles* there are some minor issues. :D

You've got a few things flipped around and mis-marked on the canopy bow.

See here: http://www.geneb.org/images/canopy-bow.jpg (and I know I mis-spelled "Refueling". ;) )

I've asked an ex-maintainer friend whether or not there's any text on the Lock/Shoot lights as well as what the color is for those and the ARR light.

The compass is in the right spot though! :D

The Canopy Unlocked indicator is red. I can get a pic of that lit up if you need it.
The Countermeasures Dispenser Light panel (right under the Canopy Unlocked indicator) is incorrect.
The labels are:
PROGRAM MINIMUM
CHAFF FLARE
SPARE SPARE

They light up orange/amber.

Right Console:
Last panel, outboard row (right across from the comm/oxy hookup) - that panel is only present on aircraft that still have the F100-PW-100 engines installed. Shouldn't be present on F100-PW-220 equipped jets.

The CMD panel (countermeasures dispenser) panel is incorrect/missing (2nd panel fore of the eng. start fuel flow panel). I don't have any pictures, but I can provide a scan from the -1 if you need it.

The ECM panel (next fwd of cmd panel) is kind of right and is uncommon. The general configuration of the panel is basically correct, but the lettering isn't correct. I can provide a scan from the -1 if you really want to use this one. The more common ECM panel installed is this one:
http://www.geneb.org/images/ecm-panel.jpg

(very, very silly nitpick - the TEWS panel lettering has a dash between "SET" and the numbers. - you can see what I mean here: http://www.f15sim.com/wp-content/upload ... -panel.jpg - my CAD drawing was fixed after that photo was taken)

Left Console:
Data cart port looks really odd. I can provide a pic if you need one.

The NCTR (Non-Cooperative Target Recognition) switch is missing - it's fwd of the IFF antenna selection switch along the same axis. I can provide a pic of the switch & location if needed.

The VMAX toggle switch is missing - it's located just aft of the panel light installed in the sidewall. Again, I can provide a photo if you need it.

The panel aft of the AAI panel is not present on A or C models, only B and D. The F-15C has a panel blank there.

The indicators on the BIT panel are all amber - I THINK. I'll have to check.

The JTIDS/FDL terminal panel (next aft of the un-needed Take Command/ICS Control Panel) looks really odd. I've never been able to find a photo of this, but I can provide a -1 scan of it.

Instrument Panel:

The Master Caution Panel is a total mess. :)

First column:
SPD BK OUT
RUDR LMTR
BST SYS MAL
TOT TEMP HI
L BST PMP
L INLET
IFF MODE 4
L GEN OUT
HYDRAULIC
PITCH RATIO
XFER PUMP
CAS YAW
L BLEED AIR
FUEL LOW
ECS

Second column:
FUEL HOT
ATTITUDE
R BST PMP
R INLET
AV BIT
R GEN OUT
OIL PRESS
ROLL RATIO
L ENG CONTR
CAS ROLL
R BLEED AIR
BINGO FUEL
HOOK

Third column:
JFS LOW
EMER BST ON
INLET ICE
ANTI-SKID
R ENG CONTR
CAS PITCH
WNSHLD HOT
OXY LOW
AUTO PLT

The placard under the cabin alt pressure gauge should read, "JFS AIR OPERABLE"

Misc...
There's a placard/decal on the cockpit rail above the canopy handle that's missing. I can provide a pic if needed.

You've got the flood lights present and in the right place, but there is a larger, square shaped light that is missing on each side. Finding a pic will be difficult as I don't have those in my cockpit. :(

I think the FLAP indicators are amber only, I'll have to check.

thanks! :)

In the pics of your pit the top is red and the bottom is green.

The lock/shoot lights are amber and the air refueling light is green.

The whiskey compass is in the right location but should be mounted horizontal ... not tilted to match the angle of the canopy bow.
