Kashmiro,

first, as you may notice from tags on the topic, this mod is not made for 4.10. Second, the issue you're pointing out is an error in the making of the mod (which has its advantages, though, since allow you not to loose padlock view when object is behind cockpit panels... ;) ).

When the Sun shines through a texture like this, it's because that texture has--and is using--an alpha channel for transparency cutouts. Either that texture must not utilize transparency for defining its shape (relying instead upon tracing the part's outline with only polygon vertices), or it must have a backing texture without an alpha channel, to act as an opaque screen.

For instance. Here, the panel has a somewhat 'complex' outline. Ideally, it would be made by defining its perimeter with a fair number of vertices, building up the thing with a good number of polygons. But the original artist decided instead to go the easy route, by setting as few as just 4 corner vertices, relying on the alpha channel's tracing of the outline to hide the non-panel outer parts of the texture.

Other cockpits also suffer such 'bleed through', even 'accidentally', due to failure to ensure non transparency-based textures are utilized. Transparency in a texture not intended for the Sun to shine through is fine only if backed with another non transparency-based texture.
