Fokker E.V/ D.VIII cockpit finished

I'm calling the cockpit on this done so I should be able to get the fuselage glued together and make some progress on the rest of the model;

 The rear panel and seat were covered in Aviattics' exterior lozenge decal with the seat bottom done with Uschi Van Der Rosten woodgrain. The seat belts were two layers of masking tape cut into 1.5mm strips and the buckles were cut from the etched belts in the kit.
The rudder pedals are supposed to be at that angle as the rudder will be offset to starboard. The faces for the compass and tachometer actually came from an old 1/72 Airfix Canberra decal sheet which were cut out using a 1.4mm round punch.
