de Havilland Beaver Sim Pics
« on: April 27, 2017, 09:35:34 PM »
Hello Everyone: I know it has been awhile since I posted. It seem life took a different road for me. Early Mar. of this year was in the basement hangar looking at a skeleton beaver sim collecting dust and collecting parts. So I began  getting into the build. Changed some of ideas of working with potitionmeters and finding areosim solutions was on leave for awhile. So I am using my Saitek controls for the beaver. So here are a few pics to show you where I'm at present.


Painted the frame lime green like the coating of real aircraft.


Heel tray I made for the copilot side.


Modified Saitek throttle quadrant.


Finished Look


Rear Cargo View


Firewall will rack the computer, USB routers, digital input/output cards. Also have a dual monitor rack for my front views.


Overall view


Skinning Exterior


Cabin view from the rear.


Beaver Sim panel


Look through the pilot door.

Hoping to finish exterior skinning this weekend. All the inside panels are made now and to finish installing them. Nicer weather coming and will be able to open basement windows to paint. Color scheme is picked but will keep it as a surprise. Will try and keep you updated. Please enjoy as I have building C-FROB c/n 02


Take care

Awesome work! I love the craftsmanship and the "DeHavilland" Art Deco logo on the throttle quadrant - very cool!
