F-16 cockpit black polygon on left side

Hey everyone,
I quite new to using flightgear, and after experimenting with the f-16 model, and i encountered some problems.
- I have a black polygon all over the mid-left range of the cockpit and can't see the controls there.
image :
- Can't interact the buttons on the left and the right side of the seat (Not sure if bug, maybe just incomplete cockpit ?)

What is causing this ?
Running flightgear 2017.3.1, windows 10 x64, gtx 970
When testing the boing 777 i didn't encounter any problem like this.

It has to do with the variants, which is decided by the livery.

We have started working on updating the F16, it should be fixed if you download the f16 from here:
