Is it only me or does the P-38J cockpit have rainbow marks all over it especially under the left rudder pedal looking like the cockpit was not fully completed and I just flew a rather long mission and my fuel gauge didn't move one bit, does it even work?

Yes it works. Like most of the aircraft in the game however, it appears to register less than the maximum fuel load. If you start with 100% fuel you could be flying for quite a long time before the fuel guage starts to drop from "full". I just test flew in Quick Mission Builder with 25% fuel and the lower guages (rear tanks) started at about 5 gallons each on rapidly hit zero, with the front tanks dropping after the rear tanks were empty.

Rainbow marks? This I gotta see!

I don't seem to have that in my cockpit. Not sure...
