The mirror does work, you need to have "reflections" "on". If you zoom in on it you can more the view around with the arrow and page keys. It dark, but it does have a reflection there.
Not if you use TrackIR.

So you're saying that a mirror was added to the 38 where the mirror would be to bring no function as a mirror but only to block the view? Because that was it's historic function?

and don't forget the two directional gyros and no wet compass.  I've been checking the internet for any P38 cockpit pictures that show that configuration of instrumentation but so far unable to find one.

As the skinners make new ones YES there will be. They cant use the old skins on the new models so all of them have to be remade from scratch.

It's not historical realism, the real thing did block the forward up view but in exchange offered a view of your six.  The AH version just blocks your view, that's not historically accurate, now is it?

Can you adjust the mirror? Is it auto dimming?

I have a question
1  Would it be possible to substitute airspeed indicator for small directional gyro
2  Could the vertical speed indicator be moved to bottom manifold pressure gauge and both pressure gauges be put on one?
3  Could we move both RPM gauges to one  gauge ?
   As it is the gauges are hard to see.  I really use the vertical speed indicator in a turn or dive  :old:

You'll have to call Lockheed and ask for those changes.  I'm pretty sure that they no longer support the aircraft, however...

No that's how the Aircraft from Lockheed were.... The cockpit model resembles a real P38 cockpit but its not exact as mentioned.

You can find a P38L cockpit on line at "1945 Lockheed P38L N3800L virtual tour"
the clock is at 12 o'clock on the panel
Attitude indictor directly below
Airspeed to AI left
Altimeter to airspeed left
1 Directional gyro below AI
VSI at low 6 on panel
 The plane is done up in Bong's color's .It does have advanced navigation aid looks like two vor receivers.
Its a more pilot friendly panel :airplane:
You can see landing gear in left engine cowl
