TWIN OTTER 400 (glass cockpit)
I started with a Twin Otter 300 several years ago, and have decided to go back to this aircraft but the 400 has a glass cockpit and I am not familiar with the layout! Photographs on the net, are either incomplete, or not very clear. I really need to see the switch panels etc, and their function so that I can build more accurately. I also need to see more clearly what gauges etc are placed on the monitors.
I guess that this could be a tall order, but does anyone know how I can get hold of a manual, or tech drawings for the cockpit of this aircraft - or anything that will show the configuration of the cockpit with indication of switch function?

Re: TWIN OTTER 400 (glass cockpit)
manhattan I thinking on starting a Twin Otter too. Do you have any shell/cockpit more precise dimensions?
The glass cockpit used in the 400 is so much "integrated" with so much buttons and rotative encoders, I prefer to use a simpler glass-cockpit even if that means getting a bit different from the original aircraft.
Anyway, work and luck
