I'm a passionate gamer for more than 20 years and my father knows his way in metalworking. We had some free time:






The keyboard+mouse+joystick, monitor and steering wheel holders are telescopic ("pullable") and you can adjust the angle too. My father did all the handiwork, I was just the designer smile It's not really a cockpit, but more a flying/racing/casual gaming rig. Since I don't really care about visually simulating a cockpit, focus was on functionality.

Here's a quick update to my pit. I revised the pedal mountings to make it easier to switch from airplane mode to car mode by just flipping the unused pedal to the left or right. There are some other updates as well, but rather than a long post, I'll link to the whole update here .

Dudley, I saw this post a few days ago and this is the third time I've come back to it and visited your site. The build log and details of construction (evolution?) on your site are as educational as they are innovative. I think that your pit is one of the two best homemade pits I have seen in my several years of this hobby. The other is the Spitfire pit by Darryl (name?).
Excellent work and thanks for taking the time to share details of your work with the community.
beercheers

Derek

Wow... thanks much for that! I think there are a lot of others around that are much better than mine, and to be honest, I stole most of my ideas from them. People like GrizzlyT, Reschke, Flatlander, and the like all provided insight or inspiration for a lot of what you see in my pit.

The sad part is now that I have it to this stage, I know what I would change if/when I ever do another one. But I think that is going to have to wait for retirement! tuner

Thanks again,
Dud

He lives in that part of the world where you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a pile of A model F-16 parts. smile

Ziet er goed uit Ralph. Wondering where you got those real parts. I used to live in Holland and contrary to what Gene says, many dead cats later still no F16 parts. Your pit begs for a wrap around projector setup. Where about in SW Netherlands. I visit family in Zeeland every fall. Would love to take that box for a spin. winkngrin
