B1900D Home Cockpit Progress !!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I thought I'd share some pictures of the progress I've made with my B1900D home cockpit.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/65655.jpgThat big hole in the panel is where my 17" flat screen LCD will be, showing all the primary flight instruments, as well as engine gauges. (That's my old panel on the floor behind the new cockpit)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/65657.jpgThis is the front view of the cockpit. You can see where I'm sticking my CPU Tower.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/65656.jpgWhen finished, there'll be an entire enclosure with skin. The outside view will projected onto a screen using an LCD projector. Here's the plan:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/65658.jpgYou can go to http://www.pookiedom.com/b1900d to see details of the throttle.

Putting the engine instruments on the main LCD? That space to the right of the cut-out looks just right for a second screen for my Twin Turboprop Eicas application! :-)Seriously, though, very nice looking 'pit!Richard

Nice! I am using the B1900 flight model for my King Air sim... much better than the FS9 KA :)You might want to reconsider putting your computer in such an enclosed space unless you are going to have LOTS of air moving through there! Pentium processors make great room heaters...Keep 'em coming!

Yeah, I've already decided to drill many vent holes in the side of the center console (where the Tower exhaust fans are). The front will remain open. Do you think this is enough? The other option is to drill a large opening and then cover it with a wire mesh or something to really open it up for ventilation. At least my feet will stay warm :)
