Default Missing External Model Parts / Texture from cockpit view

Not a major thing, but I noticed then I leaned over the side of my MiG-21 with my Rift on, that there is only a small part of the model there and textures are missing from it (Standard VVS Grey Skin).

F2 view is perfect for these parts. I was actually standing up when I saw it to get out of my sim chair with my rift still on, so it's not normally seen.

I've noticed the same and reported to Leatherneck already. The feedback was that real pilot can't move his head in the MiG-21 like this in the first place so that it wasn't a big issue, so not sure if they will do anything about it. I agree when canopy is closed you should not be able to stick your head like this, but with canopy open and not strapped in, you might so anyway, wait and see.

Actually, these texture issues will be fixed- but we might not add the missing fuselage pieces on the sides. Unfortunately the interior model and exterior don't match either, so it's a lot of extra work right now.

EDIT: Yes- unstrapped you could probably lean that far.

At least an explanation was given, but it does look better completed. You know it will probably keep coming up for all eternity?

Yeah... But it also is really low priority, since in regular usage it shouldn't even be noticed. Leaning out of the cockpit mid-flight can hardly be called 'standard practice' among Cold War era fighter pilots.

Well, you're not exactly correct on this one. I would say all other planes are like that. When you're in cockpit, in reality you're not in the same 3D model as you see when watching the plane in outside view. For performance reasons, it’s just a truncated model, containing only the parts that can be seen when you're sitting strapped-in. There is no need to send undercarriage or the bottom of plane fuselage to the GPU for rendering as you're never going to see them.
Aside of that, the real problem is not this part not being visible but the fact that you can actually stick your head soo much out of the cockpit during the flight.
