With a little bit of grinding, Black Box's resin cockpit set intended for Monogram's F-5E can be made to fit
Italeri's F-5A. Thoughtfully, BB provide the early-style of head box for the ejection seat, as appropriate for the
CF-5. The F-5E's radar scope will need to be removed from the center of the instrument panel, but otherwise this
excellent cockpit set represents the CF-5s 'pit very well.
After assembly, the cockpit components were painted Dark Gull Gray, given a wash of a darker gray, and then
dry-brushed with a very light grey to bring out the detail before details were painted various colours to match
