Congratulations Tulkas... welcome to the club.



P.S (Spanish only, sorry): Es un cr?o estupendo... abr?galo que por ah? arriba hace mucha rasca. Desde el conocimiento que da el hecho de haber sido padre un par de meses antes que tu te dir? que ya te puedes ir preparando para dejar ligeramente aparcada la simulaci?n por un tiempo.

Thanks guys!

Calvo-> No te preocupes que ya estamos (por fin) en primavera y a menudo pasamos de los 10 grados, se ha derretido casi toda la nieve en mi urbanizaci?n :D Por otro lado a?n tengo esperanzas de compaginar crio y aficiones, para eso creo que los horarios laborales noruegos son mucho m?s benignos para la familia y los hobbies quelos espanoles.

And now some building, I am very happy with this one:

Now working on the left side. The arm lever mechanidm it is almost solved. I had to modify a little Mike?s lever to be able to use with the link I found. It?s working very well:

I am starting to see the end of the journey (ACES only :) )

Today I worked on the front part, the one housing the ejection handle:

Once these two parts are finish I think major operations on the ACESII two are done and it will be only left the most pleasant part of the building: add details with wires, pipes, etc... and finally the stickers! looking forward!

Hey Tulcas!
Looking really treat, but take in mind not to build that eject handle system to fragile, cause you will in a fight suddenly get a missile up your ass and then pure reflection pull the eject handle very hard. You might not, but when you have a stranger in the pit and you dont remember to tell him to eject gentle, then you are back to repair.

Just a heads up.

Hey Tulkas!
That looks awesome, dude. Like Kukki says, build it tough. The real eject handle take 50 lbs. to pull it!!!!! You cant make a mistake. I have to use two hands to eject with the real mechanism.

Thanks Kukki. Believe me, the idea of strangers on my cockpit obsess me from day one. I am building a plane in my house so I am a freaky and nothing can help with that anymore, but I don?t want to be an eccentric antisocial freaky the kind which when have visitors and they said "wow! so cool cockpit! can I sit on it??" "NOP! you will break something!!"  :wacko:  :-P

So to avoid that situation I am building my cockpit as solid as possible without regard for weight or transport ease other than make it modular. So the the springs for the ejection handle are screwed to a solid 5cm thick piece of wood glued to the back of the MDF.   

Hey Tulkas!

First I wanted to get the real feeling, then I learned that it was 50lbs so the only way to get it was to make a hole on the floor and hung son training free weights from the handle :) So I gave up and used 4 springs (yes i had added one more after the pictures) and I would think the feeling is around 15kg, good enough to have a solid feeling for me.

---------------------------------------------

My wife must be an unique case of wife support but she got to CONVINCE ME to buy a new screen because my old 19" CRT looked so ugly together with the new seat I am building. The thing I was THE ONE resisting to such an expenditure. But once in the shop I could resist no more, especially because they have a 30 days trial period so you can regret:

Oh boy! With that size and that close I see 3D cockpits on natural size now!:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w90/Tulkas_5Js/Cockpit/IMG_1246.jpg
Tulkas' simulator - progress


47 inches, Full HD, 1920x1080, 1080p, 60Hz, 5995 NOK.-... I was worried about having the screen so close but having 30 days testing it was worth to try. If I get sick and throw up after every flight I can always can get my money back or go smaller.

Yesterday I test it, adjusted backlight and flew 4 hours non stop. Now you will have to come and take it away from my cold dead hand :)!

I have not forgotten my ACESII. Working on paper stencils to make metal plates for the top of the sides. Many cut-outs for the stuff there:

CAN SOME ONE TELL ME THE DIAMETER OF THE OXY RING??? Thaks!!!

Thanks Milos, actually that picture is gonna be help since I am planning to restore my oxy bottle repainting it.

-------------------------

Well, well, we keep on. Now I have started making all the details which hang all over the seat.

First the rails. Quite annoying to make with wood because been so straight there is no place where to hide imperfections. That demands and extra effort with mastic and sandpaper to get a smooth surface.

They are fake rails in the sense that most of them are just solid wood and only the top actually looks like a rail.

But I think they got nice looking in the end:

Working on the top sills of the sides. Especially the left side requires carefull work to install the arm lever. Everything appears to go ok here. The plata is made in 3mm alu
