B-23 Cockpit?

Did Ocke make 2 different size cockpits on the B-23?

Mine is larger in the front, but i am sure some of them look like there is more space in the back for the co-pilot?

Yours did have a canopy, as raced, not very sucessfully by Ms Vicky Crump. They couldnt bend the rules enough to make it competitive.

My tip would be start a new thread and ask some specific questions - what engine props setback etc do you have right now and what speed and RPM's are you pulling - oh and what is wrong?
