Sometime in February of 1999 SnQQpy.Dog began editing the side views of the 800x600 cockpits, and the rest is history! Since he began that project various custom cockpits have come into being, gradually adding various new features such as buttons that change color when selected, and even enhanced maps and threat lists.
Hey, can't beat that! You can now download the additional art or download the entire package including the side views from the links at the end of this article.
Here is a look at the revised cockpit graphics in the download. ..
Of course, there is another option. This cockpit is by Jung-Hoon Kim, and more closely represents the actual F16 layout. If you prefer this one click on the link below the image to download it (instructions included in the zip).
Rufus Parson eventually modified Kim's cockpit (based on SnQQpy.Dog's work) and included some color corrections as well as ICP buttons that light up when selected. Parson eventually added the kneeboard maps and guides. Download Parson's cockpit by clicking HERE. This one is 8x6 only and contains both standard and custom art. For his 1024x768 cockpit click HERE.
Below is Adnan Arif's cockpit layout which also includes a map mod, TACAN and TWS charts and photos of an actual F16 cockpit: F4 Cockpit v5. This one is 1.07 certified.

Joel Bierling sent me another cockpit mod. These also are based on the previous work of the other freelance cockpit artists. Joel's claim to fame is the addition of the ADI, VV, and AOA indicators to the down left and right views. All views were compared to pictures of real F-16 cockpits for more accuracy (especially for the night time look). Following are two images from his work:
