    Aircraft Cockpit Sections/Instrument Panel Projects

    Gentlemen and Ladies,
    This is a new thread where you can post all information and photos of your cockpit project. No rules about what to post, it can be a complete as removed cockpit section or a new build project such as the incredible Hornet project.
    Post away...

    Ever wondered what is in the black dustbin bags you see at the side of the road?

    B-17Man, Absolutely fantastic!

    More of the same please. (Hint-Dave, an update on your spitfire simulator should finish us all off!!)

    Also, I will shamelessly put in another picture.

    This is my Vampire T-11, when it was still at Duxford and owned by Learning Slowly.

    It is in the parts gathering stage - I have acquired most of the missing parts now, but when I will have the time to work on it, I dont know!

    Your T.11 fuselage wood appears to be ok. Better than the average pod, complete with firemans axe-hole in the stbd side!!

    That must be the Trocadero GR.3 right Dave?

    Popped in there to see it about a year ago and was told it had gone - thought it was a complete airframe then tho...?

    Well, here are mine.

    The Hunter is ex-Qatar Emiri Air Force FGA.78 QA12 and the Vampire T.11 is XE985. Both have a way to go before they look pristine again!

    Incidentally, I'm desperate for photos of XE985 when in service (with 32 Sqn. then 5 FTS) as I haven't been able to obtain a single one yet. So if anyone has anything at all then I'd love to see them.

    I also needs loads of parts, but that's another story!

    Wow! Ian's T4 looks much better than the last time I saw it! Good job. I'd still like to know what it was used for though, as it has never flown...

    Oops - sorry I forgot Dave!

    Heres a pic - when we got her she was lovely outside but needed quite a bit of work inside - we've done that as best we can (not up to the standard of other forumites I'm sure) but she is at least much tidier, all instruments in place and we've fixed the canopy hinge we think (what a crap design)

    Will try and post some internal pix when i get a chance to pop over and see her, must get the hoover out!

    All the best

    Cracking project B-17 man.

    I've heard of other wannabe's, but not sure if any come to fruition ?

    Will this become a travelling exhibit, or.....?

    Fantastic progress.

    My Halifax cockpit project is progressing very well too but not as fast as yours. The floor should be finished within two weeks or so, will send pics as soon as it is finished.

    Cheers

    Cockpit

    I hope to be able to take it to shows and open days, just really to let as many people get to see it as possible.
