Cockpit windscreen of the Linköping's P-51. The gunsight is deleted, and only mock seat harness are present on this static display machine. Also the cockpit interior color is spurious.

Regrettably this example's cockpit is not immaculate, as it lacks several important bits and pieces - see the empty gunsight mount at the top. On the positive side, it is also free of any modern fittings that often can be seen on the P-51s that are still flying.

This photo can serve as a reference for the cockpit right inner wall structure, but most of the equipment is missing.
