Stache, I keep coming back to those pictures. Question: How do you get in? does the car seat roll back? Or is it more authentic and you have to straddle the side?

Thanks all for your great comments.

Please...please... please say you do. LOL!

Sorry OvStachel, I did somewhat of a drawing for the ribs, the rest was just a few sketches with dimensions, mock-ups and hand fitted pieces.
Put pieces in place and try them out, tweak (or start from scratch) as needed.
I could jot down some more detailed dimensions if you like.
I started this phase of development as I was looking to get more into DCS and Cliffs of Dover - Blitz, and I realized the WW2 birds need more controls than our kites.
I needed some place to put those controls and then came word of WOTR....

The side panels are on wheels and do swing out a bit, but yes, primary access is by the seat, that rolls back and forth in rails.
The side panels are also detachable for transport.

Still a lot of things to do, skin the left hand side, figure out speaker placement, take it all apart to paint the insides / stain the outside similar to Albatross.
Then need to work on electronics, a lot more switches, buttons, knobs, trim wheels, have the seat reupholstered in a medium dark faux leather, etc.
Of course, it will never be "done", but that is part of the fun.

Yes... that would be great. I could most likely build it from there. Some more pics of the back if you're able.

Quite honestly, I'm sure many of us will be running to our local Home Depot/Lowes Home improvement store and buying a ton of wood if you do... LOL!/

Thanks a mil!

You know, I just looked back at Lou's original post - he has a virtual museum there, when you take the time to peruse those pictures up close that's a jaw-dropper too!

But for sheer technical prowess, outright over-the-top Barmy, Stache has us all cleaning the drool out of our keyboards. A salute to you sir! notworthy
That must take one heckuva machine to drive those three monitors, the extra side "instrument" panels, and your controls (a full-floor stick, no less!) And I suppose the map monitor is driven by a separate computer? Can you run those three monitors with the WOFF settings maxed?

What a 'pit! Dat's Barmy there, Barmy to the nth! pilot

Still a lot to do,the project is somewhat stuck in this current state though.I enjoy Flightsims set in WW1 up to early Jet era,thats why the Pit has a more modern approach to fit all needs. Sorry for the low picture quality.

Hi Lausbub, looks like I still have a ways to go. That's a nice rig there. What are you using to drive the switches and Axis? That's my next step. I'm planning on Arduino/Leonardo and mmjoy2.

And I suppose the map monitor is driven by a separate computer?

Two year old system - spec's are in my signature.
I do run on maxed out settings, locked in at 85Hz.
Won't say its perfect, but 99% of the time, I am fine with the operation.
I was really worried the 980ti would not handle resolution and I have been extremely pleased.
Map Monitor is driven off game computer at this time. I have plans to drive it off a fan-less PC.
Mainly so i can adjust the map without interfering with simulation.
Right now, it and the two side monitors are just displaying a static image, they add very little to the load.
I am working on post with more detail.

Hello,
The left and center Buttonboxes are connected to two Leo Bodnar Boards. The Throttle unit and the Trimconsole on the left side is conected to another Bodnar board. Adding the Flightstick and the Rudderpedals I have 5 Controlers connected in total.
