    Re: A320 Cockpit Liners

    I contacted FDS about buying liners and they weren't really interested. Told me they only dealt in complete kits.

    Usually they only sell if you have the dual trainer setup, that includes their shell for compatibility sake.

    There are at least 4 or 5 of us here looking for affordable liners -- I will be willing to invest if someone can come up with a plan.

    Re: A320 Cockpit Liners

    I have emailed FDS and had no reply on liners. I'm certainly not chasing them.

    I think the answer to the lining issue is Precision Cut ESB. BUT! We need accurate CAD drawings.

    I will take a Capt Window and a Capt side roof panel (left of overhead) if we all chipping in...

    Re: A320 Cockpit Liners

    A little update on the ESB cut panels.

    So I bought the Cockpit Sim Sketchup file and sent it off to the guy that does the ESB cutting and model making. He has come back to me with a price for the ENTIRE cockpit liners (turns out the Sketchup file is good enough). The price would blow you away - it's incredibly cheap. I can't say exactly how much just now, but it looks like it will be possible with a bit of tinkering at my end to get the right fittings etc for them to be attached to a frame. Also, the model maker has suggested that he can leave what he referred to as 'salvage edges' on the ESB so they are slightly bigger than ordered so that they can be hand trimmed on site. Something worth considering.

    We're working towards getting a sample made up for the end of next week and I will post more here.

    Re: A320 Cockpit Liners

    Wow, that's fantastic news, put me down for a set! I will be happy modding them at home for my sim, will all come together eventually. Can I just ask, what is ESB?

    Also, as I am only building a half cockpit, maybe you will be so kind to resell your sample set as a viable option, but again happy to pay for a new set, just a thought! Pay day at end of month too

    Kind Regards

    Edit: Just researched ESB and I know exactly what it is now, its funny because my pet snake has a 3D rock effect background made from it in his vivarium, and I think my washing machine's packaging had 2 trays made from it and it was very hard to brake up by hand to dispose of. Very durable indeed. Looks like there are a few companies around that can model in ESB, many such companies make props etc for film sets, exhibitions etc. I am really beginning to understand it now and its low cost. I really like the idea.

    Re: A320 Cockpit Liners

    Awesome - if this can be made I would be interested in full liners for both captain and FO side -

    Only planning to build up to the end of the forward overhead for now

    Re: A320 Cockpit Liners

    So its safe to say Paul that the below members including yourself will take a set and are very credible members. That's 4 sets guaranteed. Maybe you could get a discount for 4 sets. Also we could set a time limit for funds to be able to produce these to get these in production if all are committed, maybe with a deposit.

    All credible members who will commit Paul, maybe we could all exchange emails maybe.

    Kind Regards,
