Yes, I planed to do the modernised version, so no need for the old bar-style engine instruments
As far as I've seen on photos in the web there are no more analog engine instruments in this cockpit. I think they show it in the second MFD, the same way like the modern US choppers do.
I've started a bit with the MI-28 for testing, but I want to finish the KA-50 first, so that every chopper I release is in a ready for further use and mod state, with an external model and an internal cockpit.
At first I don't wanted to completely overhaul the whole cockpit of the KA-50, but as as I looked at the inside a bit closer without the cabin arround and started to correct the polygons I decided to do some things like the main cockpit panel from scratch, because this is easier to do and I can give it the realistic shape. I also reduced the polygons a bit and made quads as far as it is possible, so that the shape of the already correct parts like the right side panel is still the same. I dont want to reduce details. Sadly this has to be done mostly manual, because the automated process often gives real weird results, you have to correct after that. It's usually better to correct it manualy from beginning.
As said the shape of the main panel is now matching the original much more, but this means also that all of the instruments do not match the gauges anymore. That should not be a big deal, because only five instruments worked in this chopper, but those are one of the things I'm not able to correct on my own. Same goes for the missing instrument in it. The KA-50 has still a lot of steam gauges in, but there are no bar-styled instruments. I looked at the web if there are modernised versions exist, but it looks like they always used the same cockpit. Only differences I was able to find is that there are blue and black colored versions and some of the boxes at the overhead changed their positions, but nothing real dramatic like in the MI-28 or KA-52 for example.
