See below for notes on cockpit kit.
Cockpit Note: Unfortunately the tooling and design costs to make the
engineering changes to the fuselage are prohibitive for the
adaptation of a cockpit kit.
As such, there is no cockpit/interior kit available for this model
at this time. Per RTJ-PM,1999 AMC
Though a .90 size engine will fit into this plane there is no
in-cowl muffler that will work with a .90. 5/31/00
