    Hello All

    In my intro yesterday, I mentioned I'd post some shots of my older F4U Corsair Mockpit currrently in use as my pc work station gaming machine. I also mentioned my latest project which is based on another popular WWII 'Warbird', the Focke Wulf model FW 190 A variant.

    The old corsair was fun to create use but like all things we make into long term pastimes, we long to improve on our earlier ventures.

    I've chosen the FW 190 as it has always held a special spot in my deep interests of WWII Warbirds. Adding to that is that many see the FW series as having one of the more ergonomic appealing cockpit layouts.

    Anyway, on with the show...

    Cheers n Beers :)

    Looks like you put a lot of work in on that Corsair cockpit, and the Fw 190 looks interesting. Are you planing to do a full control panel on that one?

    Hello All
    Thx for the encouraging comments :)

    Hello Tbolt, yes I am planning on a working inst panel system ...just need to source some appropriate type gauges associated electronic equipment.


    Hello Geedee, updates on the 190 will certainly be posted. Plans only atm but construction will get underway asap ...then there'll be a few more progressive build shots.


    Thx again :)


    Here's some more random pics...
