  • Aviation Concepts 1/3 scale 2-33 cockpit kit display

    Hello folks,
    The cockpit kit would have never happened if it was'nt for my good friend Jim D. Who by the way built an outstanding 1/4 scale 2-33 cockpit back on the old forum a long time ago.
    So, last year he contacted me about having a cockpit "kit" or some laser cut side panels for his new 1/3 scale 2-33 project. Cockpits are a really hard to do from scratch. What I did for him was to cut out the formers and the floor for him to build a cockpit mock-up, which he did a really nice job. From there he made thin card stock templates for all the panel side pieces and seats. When I recieved these templates.... I sat on them for a couple of months staring at those templates. I built up enough courage and just jumped right in and broke it down in sections and tackled it one section at a time until it was right. Another month later the kit was finished and many of us now have them in our models, See www.aviationconceptsrc.com

    So, I have a skeleton structure in my shop of this nicly made cockpit area. What to do with it? Hate to throw it out! Well. Jim said "Make a cockpit display model out of it." Jim, what a great idea! Brilliant! So a big THANK YOU to Jim D. for blazing the way.....

    I'll be bringing this to the aero tow meets and in between meets... It will be a conversational piece on my coffee table.

    The picture below is showing the skeleton with some of the floor parts and rudder peddals installed.

          Next is the middle panel. Notice the arm rest, rear tow release hood and the pilot / passenger loading grap.

            finally the front left panel. This also has a spoiler recessed in a pocket. Below is the 3 notch trim.

                    The rear seat is mounted, then the FAA airworthiness certificate. Finally the seat harness is secured to the main bulkhead.

                        Finally the control sticks. They are positionable via solid copper wire.
