At the top of the center console are the ICP and HUD. The lower section has besides the vital Vent nozzle ;-)
the primary flight instruments. Hidden behind the center console I installed a subwoofer to improve sound in
The center console is mainly made of ply-wood (10 and 17,5mm), only the basis for the ventilation nozzle and
for the pedal adjust are made of solid wood. The fitting was made with glue and screws. Only the top and front
which hold the instruments, are removable.
The first design and version of the center console was quite regular and squared. The actual console matches
almost 100% the original. Only the basis has small differences, but this part is hidden and does not affect
the complete shape of the console. The ICP of the first version also had big differences with the original,
while the actual ICP almost matches perfectly the real thing. The mentioned basis is mounted onto the floor of
the real pit with an angle of about 70 deg. In my simulator I just mounted it vertical (90 deg) to the floor. As
this part is not visible, it doesn't bather at all.
