Hi guys
« on: October 05, 2009, 09:30:50 PM »
My name is Shane Barnes and I am located in Kentucky, USA.  I am currently building a Lear 45 sim. I started cockpit building 1 year ago with a very generic sim based on a King Air, along the way I realized I wanted a lot more detail and began the work on a Lear. I've completed the assembly and fiberglass work on  a 1:1  shell of the Lear cockpit and will soon start on all the interior work. A very talented friend of mine (Ron Rollo) designed the shell kit.

I Found your site thru flightsim and came over to have a look.   You have a really nice looking site and am looking forward to jumping over and keeping up on all the projects and keep up on XOrionFE's build.

Here is a few photos of my project from start of the shell kit to final paintwork.

Sweet job there Shane. I like it very much. Nothing like having a painted shell at home :)

Welcome here, and look forward to more shots.

Thanks guys and gals for the welcome.  I noticed many are building "big planes" . . I've seen some really amazing work here. . hope you don't mind me spying on your progress!  I'll drop a few photos of my Lear as I progress. I should be getting some interior parts this weekend. I'm really looking forward to starting on the flightdeck.

This will be my first experience with interfacing . . so far have been using GoFlight modules and FSUIPC in the generic sim that I built last fall.  Hopefully with help from all the expert interfacers out there I'll learn a new skill.  I figure the guys that have interfaced the big jets are a wealth of knowledge. . to me it looks like a million switches in a 737!  . . I would be overwhelmed, so I'll stick with the Lear . . should be a good learning platform . . then after I complete it maybe tackle a 737!      ;D

Hey Shane, There really is no difference between interfacing a 737 and a GA pit.  Except for the numbers LOL.

Bus seriously, we haven't yet much of a database of Pics, files, or other..  But rest assured it will come.

I am looking forward to seeing more of your pics.

It becomes a lot less intimidating when you understand how the various systems aboard a large aircraft function and interact with one another.

It will definitely benefit you to seek out the aircraft manual(s) for your build. You'll have a much better understading of how things work and why.

You'll get more enjoyment out of your sim too.
