Why so much silence or are there really too few guys building A-10 cockpits?

There are a verity of cockpits being built from replica to generic.
There are very few A-10 cockpit builder out there and little to no feed back from them.

In order from most to less accurate, we have these set of plans so far:

Deadman's
Dimebug's
Flim's

Just my two cents...

7rooper, I currently have the side consoles I made for my first pit in this one. (Until the better ones come along. ) Those were made from Dimbug's plans. They fit fine, but I'm having to support them on the outside front and aft corners as I didn't want them permanently attached because hopefully they won't be there for long.

Biggest reason for getting rid of them, however, is Dimbug's consoles don't allow enough room on the underside for real boxes, or even panels with all the electronics needed to support the individual panel attached to that panel. If you're planning on a simple panel with wiring to a main area or spread out, then they would probably be ok.

How much space do you have between the left and right consoles?

DM, it can vary, as they aren't in there in any permanent sense. Right now it's just enough for the seat I'm using. So right now it sits at 21 1/2". It is showing about an inch in the front between the outer edge of the console to the sidewall, and the rear of the console sits about 4" from the sidewall. The centerline of the console lines up with the inside edges of the MIP support pillars. Here's a quick pic.

Your welcome it is great you like the plans. As I have all ready posted I have alocal company that will cut the consul kits for a great price
Real life and so so communication from the company has made several reworks of the model to make it work well with the companies automated equipment.

Consoles will be for sale shortly.

Just an FYI on the Left right and center consoles. I called the company and they still have not had a gap in production to review the DXF file I have sent them. I don't have any projected date yet.
