I have, sitting here, a tweeked out A-4F pit (with A-A hud) that could possibly be used as a stand-in pit for later model MiG-21s/J-7s

 

Now, we all know it ain't quite right, but it does work, and not too badly. (recalibrating the gauges for metric will be a real PIA!)

 

My question...what is this part called????

this damn bulkhead thingy is basically what's holding me up... if I can drop it out of sight, and give a better over-the-shoulder view, this really might be a workable alternative, until a real one shows up.

 

I've looked into the a-4f_cockpit.lod with the hexedtor, and just can't find the name (unless its something stupidly simple like 'sides'??)

 

Anyway, thanks for looking!

I think Wrench if you move it you will have a problem with no canopy tga filling the area.

That's probably the one I deleted, after making one out of the Beaufighters pit...hmm. off to look!!

 

Hadn't thought about the canopy bits...nuts!! :blush:

That's definately the mesh name...Otto, you SOOOO tricky!!!

But you all are right about the canopy...even after turning the fuselage on (ShowFromCockpit=TRUE), along with the broken glass, we have a single sided lod, that leaves a conspicious gap. (among other problems). This is also visbile from the outside, looking aft of the seat. The cockpit/fuse hump disappears.

 

Well, even though it looks cheesy...it do work!! So, lets call this one a partial success.

The HUD looks nice, though :haha:

I forgot ... but if I recall, the times I used A-4 cockpit, I dropped the whole thing and raised up the instrument panel.
