Followings are a picture chronology of how Shawn Carrier who turned pieces of wood into his home cockpit. Actually he submitted the pictures to me back in April. But due to my forgetfulness, the images were not posted until now.
Below is the de Havilland Beaver simulator by Beaverpilot in Canada. He believes it is the first DHC-2 model to scale as far as he knows. What we see below is about 8 years of his work with some time off. No doubt, it’s amazing.
Followings are the Cessna cockpit by Cor Radmaker in The Netherlands, who designed the panel himself. The panel is made of metal, with flexible plywood and foam and imitation leather put together as the glare shield.
Edit: Cor has submitted additional pictures for the building of his panel, plus drawing files to share with those who are interested.
Received a post comment from Ed Gilbert (aka Raceguy) about his P-51D cockpit that he has been working on for the last two years. He said that the project is about to complete sometime this week. I can’t help to say “wow!”
The photos are originally posted on the A2A Forum. I have sought his permission to re-post the photos here.
Frankly, whenever I look at the cockpit pictures from FSX Times friends who shared with us here, I always feel the excitement and am deeply touched by the time, the effort, and the sweat (probably blood as well) they put onto our common passions in flight simulation. Thank you Raceguy. Thank you all.
Followings are the 737-800NG cockpit photos from Marcus in Australia.
