    Westland Whirlwind Mk1 fighter revisited.

    Hi everyone,
    I'm in the process of recreating the Whirlwind for the FSX/P3D sims
    and a lot of my research has directed me to this forum as much has been written here already, and it has all been useful, but I note that Stuart aka. "MrBlueSky" illustrates his post on the Exactor controls
    ( https://forum.keypublishing.com/show...actor-Controls)
    with a section from a photo (one of the original cockpit photos before it was artistically altered for the pilots notes ?) that would be extremely useful in getting those little details right.
    I have tried contacting Stuart, but to no avail and I have been unable to source this in its complete form anywhere else ..... does any one else have this set ?

    Cheers

    As an FYI, WarThunder has the Whirlwind, and a "Builders Program" for people to create models for players to use.

    At the very least you can create new skins for players to use.

      Aye, but I can't use someone else's model as a reference … it is only their interpretation of the aircraft and might not be that accurate.

              Still no luck with those elusive cockpit photos, so I wonder if anyone could help with this trim indicator.
              The wheel looks identical to the Lysanders, but not the indicator.
              Anyone able to fathom out how the Whirlwinds is rigged ? or recognise it as being used on other aircraft ?

                The Whirlwind Project Facebook page was active in June.

                  Yes the facebook site is still active (well sort of , last info was April) but the website …. the one with all the info and tech stuff became time expired and has gone.
                  I did contact Chris Hayward back in May and he said they hoped to get it back soon.
