Default Starting out

Hey folks, I’ve been reading through this, and there are a lot of cool builds in here. I’m looking to start a project of my own, and to start with I just want to build an f-18 cockpit frame. I’ve been having a hell of a time finding dimensions however. Does anyone have an stl or cad file of their rig that they would be willing to share? Otherwise any advice on starting points would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, and welcome to the forum and the Pit Building.


I am working on the drawing for the F-18, and when im done the drawings will be released for free, however there is alot of small adjustments still to be done. you can see pictures on my instagram og what im doing.


However if you need some specific dimensions so you can get started with your own drawings, i can provide them without a problem, just write what you need

So the ufc has a step in that I don’t know the geometry of, and that’s one of the big things I’ve been struggling with. I’m trying to build the thing in CAD first, so I know where to cut. I’m excited to see the drawings once you’ve finished, the other stuff on the Instagram looks clean!
