11/30 COCKPIT DONE
Gentlemen I have, almost, finished the cockpit and I would like to share with you.
First of all, I would like to thank all the people who gave me a warm welcome to LSP and kind words, they are encouraging and I hope to deserve your attention.
Peter I am big fan of your products that I find amazing, your attention is an honor for me.
Jiimbo thank you, I can’t wait to use your tie-down, very very nice.
I am quite satisfied with cockpit, even if I should work cleaner and cleaner and cleaner, this is the difference from pros
Seat belts are from RB Production and they are paper made. I have been a little confused when I started to use them because instruction sheet says to peel paper support from a corner, but there is no paper to peel, so I hope not to have goofed on seat belts. Anyway, they are nice, they have a LOT a parts and I spent a full evening to finish. I have not used any weathering because I don’t know how paper may react, so they are bare and raw. I only used some White Glue very diluted with water to soften them and conform to seat shape, and I think it worked enough.
I have a big doubt about the two T shaped handles on center console, and I would like to receive suggestions from you.
Number 1 in the picture is the landing gear emergency lowering control, while number 2 is the wing lock safety control. Reading the Pilot Handbook I guessed that number 1 should be normally in the UP position, and number 2 should be in the UP position with wings folded (and locked) and in the DOWN position with spread wings (and locked). Am I right? I have not glued the handles yet, so if someone may confirm my idea he will be welcome.
I hope not be too bold but I need some help on another question, regarding the engine cowling, that will be the next area of the building.
I am not sure of the recessed parts inside the cowling, circled in red in the picture. I think that it should be flat, so Milliput is on early warning, but I would like to be sure of it.
I hope you will enjoy pictures and more soon to come, stay tuned.
Thank you for watching.
