Insignificant they may be but they are puzzling me as to their use.

 

That is the pieces of what seems to be cord that are shown attached to the lower side of the front canopy, viewed from inside.

Anyone know what they are used for in the real world?????

it seem to keep the canopy closed down and locked, when you close the canopy... you have to tie it down! LMAO!...:lol::megalol:

Could they be unofficial "mods" for holding maps, charts to stop them moving around the cockpit, or am I being too sensible here.

actually looks like it might be from a no power sign or hud shroud. I know we used to tie things to those arms for those reasons. probably modeled in by mistake.

Now where is that speed brakes control again?

Well I've done some more googling and found out that at least ED didn't invent these.

This one of the staboard side shows that ED was far "neater" at tying the knot that the USAF. LOL :D
