A nice start of the day in the Vadul Lui Voda Airfield

Thats it for today fellas.
28.08.09 Working as hard as we can

Thats me,protective glasses are as proper as they get,a piece from the drill shotted me in face one minute after i put them on.Practically,we work without free days.We need to finish the renewal of the cockpit till 6 september,but at the same time we need to make the drawings for the simulator.Here is what we've done so far:

Me working : so hard to polish this yoke...

Half work is done...

The effect is stunning,they are as bright as sun.We will made iddentically copy of them.
26.08.09 The day the work stood still
This day was set as free day.
25.08.2009 - "The humble beggining"
Today we started.I guess you'll see all the work on the photos.We removed the yokes ,rudder pedals ,front panel and all its components,and the radio station .I guess for a day of work that will be enough.Here are some photos of our work :

Little introduction about the work we do

This is our hero:)He was landed without landing gears,and it have been damaged a bit,but its still exploitable.We got a job to renew the cockpit,and by the way ,we (our simbuilder team) will build the simulator using all the information and skills during the renewal of the real plane.

We dismantled the wings,because they would only cause trouble when working.
Welcome to the Iak-18T Simcockpit page.Here you will find a lot of information about my project.2 weeks ago ,i've got a chance to disassemble a real flying Iak-18T plane.I got a lot of stuff to do and i'm glad I could achieve so much information about it,its easier for me now to bring my project to life.Stay tuned and watch the process.This one will be a slow one ,because there is a lot of work to do there.
