      Hi everyone,

      I want to build a B-744 cockpit for my project so I'm looking for someone who can provide me with B-744 instrument panel and cockpit seats diagram in 1/144 scale. Revell's Boeing-747-8i cockpit is a disaster and completely wrong.

      What do you mean by "cockpit seats diagram"? Are you looking for schematic drawings of the seats themselves, or where the seats are located in the cockpit? As for the instrument panel, I can't imagine why anyone would have such a thing that they could "supply you". I would recommend finding a photograph online (Google "747-400 cockpit" and hit "images"), then print it out on photo paper at the correct size.

      Just remember that 99% of whatever you do won't be visible on the model unless you're doing a cutaway.

      I'd advise using flight simulator screenshots for the panel, but I agree with Jennings, you won't be able to see it. That said, I always paint flight deck chairs (e.g. Heller 707) even when they won't be seen. It's about the principle, right?
