    Beechcraft Baron 58 Home cockpit

    Hello everyone! I'm absolutely new to this forum, but I wanted to share with you my Beechcraft simpit project.
    Since A couple of months I started building my own home cockpit. I'm a flight simmer for a long time, ever since I started working on planes (737, 747, 767) as an engineer for the KLM back in 1999.
    By now I'm no longer a plane engineer, but still very much onto flight sims, but now GA is my favourite. And therefore I decided to build a Beechcraft
    Baron 58 home cockpit. Well, Baron 58-ish, because the dimensions of the cabin are not exactly as the original, and for now I use saitek switch panels and Panel builder for the instruments.
    It's all new to me, and I want to start flying again asap, so I will install handmade switch panels closer to the orirginal gradually.

    I have a blog I try to update every time I worked I worked on the cockpit.

    I hope you like it, and if there's any comments, hints or tips, always appreciated!!

    Thank you Buddy! I did some more work on the cockpit today, the roof and part of the window frame.
