Venom - exactly what I have in mind as well

Ido,
I remember having problems with AF for that matter, but I confess I haven't tried since 1.03 was released.

RD,

That should not be a confession!  AF is quite the let down IMO.  :roll:

Time for a short update  :shock:

This is what kept me busy for the last 2 or 3 week-ends :



The front panel has been assembled from different subassemblies and painted in MLU black colour.
I have MDF wood, metal and fiberglass making the front panel as it is now.
I can't show the front glareshield because they are undergoing extensive modifications to better reflect the MLU shapes.


I already placed the light under the small glareshield and the light right of the ICP column - The MFds are already functionnals. The machmeter is a old one from a F104 but the numbers turned yellow and I need to find a trick to make them white again ? I'm expecting a real HSI anyday now and I'm still looking for a cheap ADI and Altimeter  :roll: I'm not ready to spend thousands of euros on theses so If I can't find them, i'll use homemade dummies


The ICP column is is made in Fiberglass - I'm damn glad I don't have to do that one in wood.
The Front panel is made in 18mm MFD wood and unlike the real one, left and right part are a unique piece of wood for obvious solidity issues.
The ICP column doesn't go though it as the real cockpit, but is cut where it meets the wood.


Mike's wonderful panel :) You're doing a great job for us Mike - Thanks a million!
The AOA and VVI intruments are the ones made in the past by Reactorone, he has a thread down here.


Detail of the right side - with the small light and dummy backup ADI (still need to update the round button) and the FF gauge


The RWR is the one driven by the UCC it's a 128x128 LCD. I made the front face in plastic and the bright pot is functionnal as well. I placed a transparent PVC sheet above the LCD with the RWR zones preprinted. That allow me to draw the F4 RWR without the lines and that helps a lot the clarity of the symbols  :lol:

Thanks guys,

I can't take credit for the whole work since once again, I've been helped a great deal.

No problem, I'll send it to you so you can also post it on the download section.

Yep black is neat - only problem it attracts the dust much more than grey :) That means we MLU cockpits builders will need to clean the pit more often :)

Nope - The ICP housing was a one shot I'm afraid - but if you aren't lazy like me, Jason's plan will get you one just as nice  :wink:

Yeah - I know that sound, I hear it everytime I see one of your drawings  :lol:
