O.k. another few hours later. I started to make the switches, rotaries etc. today and I've seen very soon that the KA-50 wasn't the best idea to choose. I better had decided to improve a helo with a glass cockpit like the Comanche screwy hahaha

Thank's!

It doesn't look so, but the textures really make the most work. It's hard to find good photos at the web and all which looks nice are screenshots from DCS of course, so they are not useable.

I have to correct so many things like angle of view and the zoom factor of the photos to have something useable. That's also the reason why the lettering isn't readable in most cases.

Maybe someone who's native language is russian has the desire to do the lettering if the pit is finished. I'm not able to do so and have also no russian character set installed, but I think in case of realism the russian helos should really have a russian lettering.

The MI-28 will be a lot harder to do I think, cause for the KA-50 many textures already exists and I just have reworked them, but for the MI-28 we only have the simple cockpit version without many detailed textures.

For me new glare shield doing good work, is perfect.
For letters you can download textures from dcs, and you have all text in cockpit, but is still huge work.Dont know if this make sense.

I don't think this is permitted cause of copyright.

That's also the reason I spent many hours for finding suitable material. But if no-one bothers the lettering, I can also live with it biggrin

I think I have used some of the images, which I found via google, but I missed to look directly at the page.

It has real good images. Thank's for the link!

Yes, I have seen that there are many textures based on that photos. I re-used them too biggrin

I used a lot of the old textures again, only adjusted them to make it easier for mapping. For some things like e.g. the back panel good photos are really hard to find, but there is not much you can see in the game itself of it, I think.

Don't know it exactly, because I have no possibility to test it with a head tracking system at the moment.

Looks like some things will change in my life the next few months and I don't know how many time I will have for my hobby, but I will do my best.

Yes, sadly the cockpit project is on hold for the moment too.

I have to arrange some important things for my future, so no time for the hobby at the moment.

Fortunately my bride elect understands what this hobby means to me.
She assisted me to get some parts for the pit and helped me in building it as far as she could.
She even tolerates that the whole flat looks like an aircraft shelter hitten by a tornado biggrin , but this
is something I also would like to change in the near future.

Hello guys,

sometimes #%&*$# happens in life! sigh

I hope I can come back to this project at the middle or end of march.

At the moment I still have to do a lot of other things that have to be done.

Cheers Viper

Yes sadly that's the true. As things look at the moment, I have to correct the time I can get back to it, somwhere in April.

Still a lot things to do. I also hope that I have enough time for painting the parts of my homecockpit this summer, but who knows?

Originally it was planned that the pit should be ready this spring, but I'm far far away from this now! banghead

O.k. I'm not dead biggrin , but sadly I have to leave my flat, cause my hirer resigned the renting in case of own usage. I had a lot of trouble the last months, that's why I had no time for the forum or for my hobby.

I will move to my bride elect at the end of summer, but at first my son has to get a college place. At the moment I'm dismounting my pit and all the other things I want to take to the new place. The good thing is, that after the move I have a seperate room for my pit and one for all my tools I can use as a workshop.
No more chaos!!! But sadly it's a lot to do the next time, so I hope I can come back to EECH at the end of this year.

So much happend here! Soczkien and Javelin made such a good work at the project. Thank's so much for that to you both!!!!!
