This should be easy, all are from WWII birds.

Just name the A/C that fits the pit.

How are we supposed to identify it correctly then? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I also think it is a P51-pit.

As mentioned, the P-38 is clear&mdash;fighter cockpit and yoke.

The second one I simply don't recognize. It's definitely Allied with the green metal interior, and British from the gauges. Given the rudder bars, yoke and camera angle I'd say it must be a two-seater cockpit.

The third strikes me as a P-47 off the bat, with the squarish arrangement of instruments and huge pad in front of the gunsight. Don't really put the windscreen with it though; of course there were various cockpit designs. The gauges are blurry but definitely look American.

Can't tell you which model, but the FW 190 cockpit is unique and easy to spot.

I want to say no WAY that's a B-17 'pit, but the yoke is right. Where're the huge throttle controls? Guess they could be at funny angles and not together. (What happened to that pilot's arm?!?) The layout of gauges also seems wrong, but the windscreen is right. After a Google search of my own, it's not a B-24, B-25 or B-26, so I have to conceed: B-17.

The next one is clearly a P-51. Though I've never seen one except in photos and sims, the thick white line running through the panel is enough to give it away.

Hey, maybe I'll do one of these too. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif
