Thanks guys, It is something I really like to do, it really is like doing an aircraft model and the part really was a challenge.

Quote from: Iceman_JD
Which one is the real one!  How about a hint.   :?:
Great job.
Easy, on the repro, I had to place two screws that aren't on the real one for solidity reasons.


Now I need to make the pivot point to install it in the cockpit, when that geek's feeling is over, I will be able to stop looking at it and start something else  :D

Well... that is what I call EXCELLENT modelling!   :twisted:

Same attention to detail as your 1/48 model I?ve seen inhere. Just love that you did that wear/tear/weathering on it...

... I don?t mind your username here at all, but You could - with honour - change it for a few weeks to........ "Spiderman"   :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Come on guys, the replica is the one with the two ugly holes in it, even a kid can tell them apart...  :axe:  :lol:

Great work Olivier. Say, you wouldn't mind taking some measurements, know, would you?

All I can say is SAWEEEEET.
I got the measurements but i realy doubt my willingnes to tackle that project, but if nobody pick it up for production then i will have to try to make one.

Red Dawg You are an artist.

BTW the way I spelled your name is a complement.
In my opinion the greatest Collage Footbal teem is the Georgia Bull Dawgs.
My apoligies to any of you who are not Georgia Fans. :wink:
I love the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Ferrari F1 of fighter jets.

I love the Viper - a perfect melding of man and machine.

Since i'm struggling with servo motors, SIOC and FAST to implement some gauges, I decided to take a break and redesign an AOA instrument face.

As you know the VVI is already a needle instrument in the MLU but the AOA remain a tape instrument. That will be too complicated for me to realize so I decided to step away from realism and create my own needle AOA instrument, mirrored from the VVI

Here's the draft:


If you feel there's anything that could be improved, let me know :)

As for the VVI, the needle will be driven by a servo and the red square won't be visible unless the red led behing it comes ON when the instrument is flagged

Here's my newest part :)



I never really wanted to wear a helmet while simming but it's a nice addition to the pit  :D
I just need now to find a cheap O2mask and more importantly the 2 bayonet receivers that screws on the helmet cheeks and a leather vior cover I would customize - why niot with a Viperpit patch   :P

Actually, I find wearing the helmet isn't too bad at all.  First, your head doesn't rest on the hard seat back in between the grooves of the headrest.  Second, your head is tilted forward a few extra degrees bringing your line of sight a bit more horizontal.  Finally - you look extra cool and the chicks dig it (at least I keep telling myself that).

Nice, I just acquired a Helmet too, from Bubbi" in S.Korea. Nice one, 02 mask,
headsets installed and mic in the mask. The best thing about the helmet is the way the comms sound coming from it. i heard Jay using his on Teamspeak once and I was sold.

Olivier I would send Bubbi a PM and see if he will horse trade with you. GET THE MIC too! :lol:

He sent me a picture of his helmet collection and it was HUGE

If my wife ever sees me with wearing a helmet in my cockpit, I'm done  :shock:

I confess I'm already trying to wire it with computer headphones and mike as well as a gimmick to glue the TIR reflector spheres  :D
But I know that's not going yto happen

Mike, I'll be looking forward to that  8) Just don't tell my wife
