With any jet the most obvious thing about the cockpit is the ejection seat.  If you were to do anything to improve the look of your model cockpit then just add an ejection seat or two in this case. 

Packaged as usual for Quickboost in a self sealing package with card board backing sheet this protects the parts while still allowing you to see them.  This set has two seats with molded on seatbelts.  The resin pieces are molded on pour blocks that will be easily removed.  They are flawlessly cast in light grey resin.  The belts are perfectly draped and look very realistic.  I could find no flaws.  There was a little bit of resin that will have to be removed from the seatbelt as it is draped realistically, but to cast it there is a very, very thin membrane of resin that will need to be cleaned up.  It will take less than a second to do it.  It is not a flaw but designed that way.

Just a little bit of paint and these direct replacements for the kit parts will make a dramatic addition to your Trumpeter A-37 Dragonfly. 

Highly recommended
