Hey DM did you happen to know the actual dimension of the panel or it's just guess work? Looking very nice.

Same question to y2kiah for his wonderful panels.
I have no idea how big or small to make mine.

Witch panel?
I have a main instrument panel (DASH ) from an A-10 A and a fire handle housing /Glare shield for the A model. So many measurements are from the A model part then adjusted for the C model.

I all so have the main indicators ADI,HSI Altimeter, Air speed indicator and Rate of climb, IP-1310/ALR so the middle of the Dash is absolutely accurate.

Left and Right sides I have the Landing gear panel and the fuel panel for those known items I scaled the rest of the dash area for the MFCD to fit.

For the MFCD I used a combination of sources from pictures to the spec for other MFD. SO I am confident the MFCD Bezels are fairly accurate.

I just need to figure out how i will bevel the sides and bottom for a better viewing angle of the LCD panel and white lines.

I've been going on best information I can find. Mil specs when available, word of mouth next, then by eye or best estimation if all else fails. The side consoles are good to fit real panels.

It's the main instrument panel where I'm doing most of my guess work. Bottom line there is that right now I can only guarantee that my own parts fit my own panel. DM has the real parts to go from so his panel will be accurate in places that mine is not.

thanks guys for the quick reply. my question was generally for all panels, but more for the main panel. the side panels probably require less guess work than the main panel, as you can more or less tell the width required.

we know the dimension of the thrustmaster f-16 MFD. if that is roughly the same as that of the A-10C, then I guess we can extrapolate from the main panel picture the width of the panel? and even the height etc.

Generally side panels are 5.75 inch wide The main panel dimensions I may publish later i am working on some thing now.
The F-16 MFD panel and the A-10 MFCD are totally different I am sorry I can't be more specific at this time just be patient. thanks
