Thread: How Do You Gather Accurate Information For Design Of A Replica Cockpit?

  1. Default How Do You Gather Accurate Information For Design Of A Replica Cockpit?

    My home cockpit goal is to reproduce the Twin Otter. But I am having an extremely difficult time finding resources to get accurate layouts and dimensions of panels, gauages etc. to do anything accurate.

    Does anyone have any advice on how to find and gather that info? I've evn reached out to Twotter pilots offering to pay for them to compile that information with not even a nibble.

    For my own cockpit i found the dimensions of a G1000 then scaled the rest from that to get reasonable accuracy.

    Or perhaps you could buy one of these which the seller says is 75 percent to scale and work from
    that.

    Hi Stinger.
    I figured that the approach you took would be the way I'd have to do it. I found some images of cockpits, main panels mostly, taken direct so assuming minimal distortion from perspective. But of course you need dimensions of a known component to be able to create that scale.

    I'm using this phot of a C208B cockpit (Jetphotos.com Frederico Cavalcante) for now for practice, and I believe it illustrates the G1000 as well.

    But, I haven't managed now to find any source of dimensions for the outside dimension of the G1000 (faceplate or bezel whatever its called) height width and depth (thickness).

    Would you be so kind as to share what outside dimensions you have for the G1000?

    My own G1000 is not to exact scale but if you look here they have the dimensions you need.
