For those of you looking to dress up the cockpit of your 1/32 P-47D builds, I want to let you know that Mike West of "Lone Star Models" has an excellent resin seat with molded in shoulder harness and lap belts available. Mike re-did his seat for me after I sent him the seat from the Hasegawa kit for a master. This is the "round back" seat. Mike can be reached at lsmodels@pdq.net

For the record, I have NO financial (or otherwise) interest in Mike's business. Just wanted to pass along info. that there's a nice resin 1/32 seat out there.

Below is a (crappy) picture of the seat I just got in the mail today.



Happy Jugging!

This looks very nice.
I emailed Mike to see if he would like to have one reviewed on the site but haven't had a reply.

Nige, have you heard back from Mike? If not, let me know and I'll rattle his cage too!

Damian, just send an e-mail to Mike at the e-mail addy I posted in my original post and I'm sure he'll hook you up! Again....the seat is beautiful and if you're like me and detest photo-etch, it's a no brainer!

Best.....
John
