Arrow Deadman's A-10 C Cockpit

Well there is no place to get the last parts I need for the change from the A-10A to the C model. y2kiah Has inspired me to do some work with Sketch up. I think it is coming along well here is a peek at what i have been working on for the last couple of days after being laid off. There is a local sign maker with a chc router I will see what he will charge to make the main instrument panel and the Fire handle holder.

I'm curious to see what you come up with since you seem so particular about small details. ( not bad, I see it all the time with pilot's)

btw, the layoff sucks, and the bad part is it could be anyone based on our crappy economy. I hope you find a better replacement!

Thanks Guys Scaling is a lot easier when you have some parts for an A-10A all ready.
The center and bottom of the Main instrument panel are scaled off a real panel for the A model. Real Gauges will fit at this time for the Big 5, the Fuel ,Landing gear panels will also fit. With the limited space in the panel I am looking for some cheep LCD to try and cut down to fit in the panel instead of behind

The Fire handle area was a pain in the but do to the curve but i think it will work made out of aluminum
Thanks DM

Personal I think if I get ahead of the release on the projection system I would more than likely just be wasting money Not know what will work or being able to try any thing.

I still think 3 to 4 home made projectors on the http://lumenlab.com/forums/ design with wide angel lenses for a short through and rear projection would rock

The main Instrument panel looks good but. I screwed up some of it and will have to remake it again for like the 6th time ahhh oh well I all so got a bit side tracked.

I received a copy of and older ACES II manual and have been scanning it but I am having no luck turning it in to a search-able PDF with book marks. Looking for a program and a tutorial the main problem is there are severial fold out pages that are larger than the others
