LEMkits is obviously (see herebelow) working on a 1/32nd Bell P-59A Airacomet resin kit - ref. 32018 Source: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1955547184705005&set=pcb.1955547448038312&type=3&theater V.P.
I picked up a P-59, one of Hobbycraft's later releases (2002), and it is an overall nice release. One of their best in my opinion. I just picked up a 3D printer, so I decided to design a quick cockpit detail set. I know there was a long out of production Cutting Edge cockpit set, and there is a True Details set still in production. Not trying to disparage any company in particular, but I have not been a huge fan of the latter company's releases. They are Ok, but not my cup of tea. In any event, I have gotten the main dimensions, and have put in place the front and rear bulkheads. Unfortunately, there are virtually no good cockpit/interior photos available for free online! I need to order the Erection and Maintenance manual along with Steve Pace's book on the Airacomet. If anyone has, or knows where I can find some good pics, please let me know!
