Hi Guys,

I wanted to post some pictures from the Assembly of the F-16 Cockpit to show how easy it is.

This first post is of the Center Tub for the Cockpit.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Tejay
















the next step is finishing up the Aces II Seat Support.

More pictures coming soon. Stay tuned.

Here are the last pictures to finish up the Center Tub.

This section is the Aces II Seat Support

I designed the Seat Support to be a Ported Sub-Woofer Enclosure. With a couple of good subs and some midrange speakers up high, it provides an incredible sound experience. You'll really FEEL the Afterburner and Gatling Gun. You'll love it!

Enjoy








More coming soon.

Stay tuned.

Hi Guys,

Here is the Assembly of the Left Outer Cockpit section.

The Right is the same, just reversed.

Easy Cheesy

The Left and Ride Sides start with the Rib Assemblies.



Screwing a Side Support to each side of the Ribs in the Middle. The 2 End Rib stations only have Side Supports on the "INSIDE", as shown below.




Once the Rib Assemblies are complete. Then Add in the Largest Rib Station in the Back. Work from Back to Front. This will keep the Ribs Tight and Square,



Make sure the 2 END Rib stations are FLUSH like below.



Then you can attached the "In between" Square Rib Supports and the Vertical Top Rib Supports as shown.









Again, make sure the 2 End Rib Stations are FLUSH as shown below.



Now you're ready to add the Outside Rib Lower Support. The "F-!6" cut out can be in the Frint or Back, your choice.




Add on the Top Canopy Rail and your Left Side is Done!


Repeat the procedure for the Right Side and your F-16 Center Tub and Outside Rib Stations are finished. The only thing left to do is cover them. I suggest covering them LAST, as, without the Skin, it's easy to access the Switches and Wiring.

Also, I have been asked about all the Supports...if they are needed. When I designed the Tub and Outside Station Supports, I wanted it strong enough for you to climb in the cockpit over the Canopy Sills. This is why the extra supports are in place, to help bear the weight and lock the loads straight down to the floor. Heck, I can stand on the Canopy Sills and they hold me up, and I'm 200 lbs!

I build the Cockpit from 3/4" MFD as its nice and flat, doesn't warp and super cheap compared to Plywood. You have to keep it dry and pre-drill all the holes. The choice is up to you though and you can use Plywood if you like.

The next section is assembling the Aces II Seat Kit!

It will be Easy Cheesy too

Stay Tuned

Making the Cockpit in 3 Individual Sections makes it much easier to move and to work on an individual section.

Here are some pictures of bringing all 3 sections together and completing the F-16 Tub.

Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Guys,

I wanted to share the assembly instructions (pics) of the Aces II Ejection Seat.

I have 2 Aces II Seat Backs and Bottoms in Black ABS for sale. If you're interested, send me a PM because when they're gone...they're gone.

Enjoy

Hi Guys

I was recently asked about a Smaller Cockpit for those of you that don't have room for the whole cockpit.

Below is a shot of the DeskTop Cockpit.

It's small enough to fit on your Desk Top and provides the basic instruments for HOTAS

You can use a 17" monitor to display the MFD's or a 19" Monitor to cover all the instruments.

This is something that I'm happy to customize to meet your needs and it comes in the F-16 Engineering Drawings Package.

Please let me know if you have any questions and how I can help.

Thanks

Tejay
