    Mikes Hawk 128 LIFT

    A couple of pictures of the build, which may give you some idea of how it was constructed.... it took around 4 hours to get from a pile of bits to this, and then a further 4 hours to get to the semi-completed article seen in the posts above, so a good days work.







    Very rudimentary at the moment.....

    Wanted to get the shell built, so the concept could be proven before going on to putting in all the switched and controls. Still - great fun though.

    A couple of views from the seat....



    An image of the frame, which may give you some idea of how it is put together...


    An internal shot, showing just how basic it is....

    Thanks Phil, I have an insider at BAE, and I have a very, very high res picture of the front and rear seats of the HAWK 128 LIFT cockpit. I also have a contact at Bombardier in Canada who gave me a load of stuff on the Global, including cockpit dimensions and a detailed schematic of the cockpit.
    Cheers

    That's a cool little cockpit. You could take that just about anywhere.

    That's the point, as we have the Global Cockpit as well - the image system is going to be fixed, and we'll wheel out the cockpit we want to use that day. The Hawk cockpit was made for a recruiting display at a local fair hence the idea of putting it on wheels to get it out of the building and into a truck.

    Nice idea, what's the FS flight model you are using for the sim?

    Can't remember exactly, but it was a freeware model off the front of the Nov/Dec issue of PC Pilot

    Thanks, I've just purchased Falcon 4 AF and I must say the panel and flight model is stunning! I'm thinking of diverting a bit of time to build a similar small pit like yours and sit it in front of my 42" LCD for some light flying (if you can call handling an F16 light).
