my sim project 001

Recommended Posts

Hello all,Well I finaly have a pic of my Sim project that I started last WednesdayThis is the Co-pilot yoke and colum, the captains yoke is in the same state of completion. Just thought I'd share, I need to do more sanding, the handles and middle are solid wood carved from 3- 2"X 6" pices. The colum and switch casing are PVC pipe.. alittle more and I'll be able to paint them Boeing brown and hook up the connecting wires to connect the yokes, comments are gladly welcome , have a great day,

Was exactly the only thing I could suggest. Sand a little more, then fill some with wood-paste. Result: perfect ! :DKeep up the nice work !I hope I'll get my yoke soon here. I'll lend one of the 2 real Fokker70/100 yokes from Gert Polkerman. I'll make a silicon mold from it. Then make a 2 component plastic (or some material easy to edit) yoke. Then change the yoke to look more like F50 (not that much work to do .. just remove some of the big knobby things). Then make a second mold and make the final yokes out of 2 component plastic.Quite sure these 2 will boost my simpit again one more big step forward :)Keep sharing those pictures! We love 'em ;)
