I am absolutely loving this mod! Some mighty fine parts I must say!

Just as a suggestion, when making fighter-style cockpits, maybe look into creating families; so single and two-seat versions of the same aircraft (like a single and two-seat F-16). And if you're looking for more cockpits to inspire any of your future designs, I'd look at the A-4 Skyhawk and TA-4 Trainer:

The M346 Master/Yak-130:

or this concept low-observable cockpit:

Keep up the amazing work! And that F-16 cockpit looks damn gorgeous!

What a wonderful mod this is turning out to be. When it first appeared months ago, it was a limited bunch of buggy parts, but in so little time it evolved into a fully-fredged, comprehensive, smooth-running airplane parts mod! 

Many kudos!

My two cents: we should have more wing options. The vanilla ones you can build by combining the square segments look kinda ugly (the delta ones however look great), but we are lacking in finished, ready-to-use wing formats. Perhaps you could thing about creating 2 or 3 more!

Sorry to plug a separate mod, but Aviation Cockpits has most of those covered.

Am I in the minority in wanting more engines and fuselages? How about some slick 1.25–0.625m transition fuselages for nose and tail, intake fuselages, or maybe a coke-bottle fuselage for area-ruling pla—wait, nevermind, FAR is still down.

Is anyone else finding that the Fighter Cockpit doesn't have any hatches? If this has already be addressed, sorry....

 

The fighter cockpit doesn't have a hatch because as blackheart said, he had to rush it since he would be busy on Christmas.

Can you make a B-25 cockpit?

I think even a generic three-crew bomber cockpit (pilot, copilot, bomb aimer) would be nice. Base it somewhere between the A-20, B-25, and B-26 cockpits. Could even give the bomb aimer a mini-Norden, and since he's in the control module, it should still fly properly.

A-20, not B-20

I can't do em that fast, but I hear you guys loud and clear. Hopefully they'd be done some day. For now, It took a couple days but I'm mostly done with the F-16 cockpit. I've also edited a lot of the existing IVAs as well as Added hatch to the fighter cockpit and I have a lot of pics to share.

Of course, I've applied internal camera views here already on this IVA (it clips through the mesh as the camera is so close, cabin is small.

I also added them to most cockpits aside from texture edits of the first ones.

This is the closest I could put my nose to the front glass @kiwinanday

Lastly, the bell cockpit has a reworked IVA and here I demo the internal cam switch on the bottom glass

So most cockpits have gained left and right internal cam switch for any reason why you'd want that. I've added them for pre-flight checks mostly. So that I could look at the wings and ailerons before flight. Inspired by the Battlefield 3 Hornet Mission. "You heard him, Hawkins. Check flaps and stabs." :D

That looks perfect!
The cockpit geometry seems to limit me to >-7° view, maybe a bit more at the flanks. But at low-speed, high-AoA landings, every bit helps!

So. I've revisited earlier parts I've thought of and so I've added the smaller wings I've made before. It still needs a CoL rebalance but they work and look fine. For smaller, more precise wing making.

I've also added a bigger elevon to match and it looks big (lol). It's a straightened Elevon 2B. Hence, the name.

I've also made a cockpit based on the P-40 Warhawk. I don't know if it's really that different to the zero cockpit though?

Yes it is different.

Wait

That is a P-40!

(Cries) No no I'm not crying. (sniff) I'm just cutting oinions to cook for our Christmas dinner.

Making cockpit IVAs are really exhausting and I'm burning out. So I've sidetracked to an easier model to make. Of course I'll make an IVA for this but at least it's circular. Easier to model :P Problem is, I'll make a custom stockalike texture for the ends (where the doors are) because this is 2.5m! Which isn't really a problem, I'll try to make a good design. I'll still be back for wings (adjusting the CoL on configs make me lazy) and other cockpits and IVAs. Fighter IVAs are particularly harder to make because they're really closed spaces. By hard to make I mean I can't make in a couple of hours so it takes my time a lot. Picture!
