I've been planning a simpit build for a while. However, due to several military PCSes this year I haven't wanted to start construction on a pit only to have it get banged up in the move. To pass the time I figured I would make some full scale blueprints for my build. I noticed that there are a lot of great resources for the jet crowd but I am a prop-head. I've seen a couple of excellent WWII builds around the net but not a lot in the way of blueprints. Long story short I thought "why not do this myself"?
Here is what I have so far, the Main Instrument Panel(MIP)and MIP Housing for a P-51B mustang.

I've been drawing them from the original engineering drawings and found that I really enjoy the process. I also have the original engineer drawings of the P-51D, BF-109 series, and FW-190 series. In order to help finance my own pit I thought I would see if there was a market for this kind of thing. My current file format is a 1:1 scale PDF. I plan on having the local office max/kinkos/etc. print off a set. Not sure right now if I'd sell the PDFs or a physical print.
I'm interested to see what you guys think of my work and if you think there is a market for it. Thanks.
