    Sounds awesome! Just curious, do you know where I can find a good simulation of the IL62? It doesn't need a VC, just systems depth.

    I am wondering why you asking a simulation of Il-62 when you are building HS748 ?

    Re: Soon ready to building Il-62 cockpit.

    My HS748 cockpit is still a WIP. Not yet practical for use, as all I have is the electrical systems panel and a partially cut MIP.
    I still sim casually, and while I've logged almost 75 hrs in the 748, I also fly other aircraft. I have a love for Soviet aircraft, and am constantly on the PT Tu154 and the SCS Tu124. I've always wanted a decent IL62, but could never find one with the flight engineers panel or good systems simulation.

    Re: Soon ready to building Il-62 cockpit.

    Now I understood. You can travel to Stölln in Germany and measure this. If you pay me just 143 $ which is half if the cost for one person. Tour costs 3500 for two persons because I will travel with a friend. Thus, I can measure EACH instruments and buttons, switches, EVERYTHING for you and me. Because it costs to take flight from Bergen, Norway, to Berlin, Germany.

    I have asked they who are responsible for the airplane for the permit to measure. They said yes. So that's why I am ready to building Il-62.

    I forgot to add, you can find partially simulation of Il-62 for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004; there you can find navigation, main panel, overhead panel, but not the engine panel. If you and I do not know, we can asking in a russian forum how each instrument works and what they are for.

    If I had the right information, I could put together a full panel for it.

    Re: Soon ready to building Il-62 cockpit.

    An small update.20140110_005547.jpg
    I wondering a short time how to attah a motor to a thing that I do not need to let it stays on the table with confusing wires.

    This metal box is a liver pate, original since 1949 in Norway, which is a food item for the bread; this metal box I will using for prototype for instruments. The prototype for instruments will be attached to a wood plate.
