we could if i have more time :grin: but i have to focus on the immediate items , so probably not

 

and if i would make the rear cockpit like i do the front cockpit you would have a real problems to get the thing working in game , the amount of poly´s would be to much i assume

 

 

but could we get back to the topic , any pictures of the side panels ?????? pleeaase

 

or can some body tell me what panel this is ???

Just a guess,is it a DTM,

 

Copied:

"Data Transfer Module Receptacle - The DTM is used to enter pre-designed mission information to the aircraft's onboard computers. The DTM cartridge is prepared on mission planning computers during the mission planning phase and should be inserted into this receptacle before the mission."

I don't see anywhere on the panel to accept DTU/DTM's. That's probably just a control panel and the tapes with OFP on them are most likely stored with the LRU box

i´m searching for that part but i dont find a thing , i have now pictures for the HUD and the main panel but still nothing for the side panels

 

if i´m not finding any picture that show some detail of that part i may just go and make the side panels for normal F-4E

 

i found this one here but unfortunately no textures are assigned to it

and the left side panel will be like this here , it is almost the same as the RF-4E layout that i´m using

now i need some help on an other panel , it is located between the VHF/UHF and the TACAN panel (red arrow ) i could not find anything that comes close to this panel all i can see are 8 indicator ligths and no switches this sub panel is attached to the larger panel with 4 screws

Part of the AN/ADD-4/5 IRS System Package for "RF" Phantoms and F-4's that can carry a Recon Pod.

 

 

The film could be developed in flight and film cassettes could be ejected at low altitude so that ground commanders could get aerial intelligence as rapidly as possible.

 

Backseater has one too in the USAF/USMC RF Phantoms. Phantoms that run "Pods", have just one Panel up front.

 

 

The Cassettes are High Viz Orange so they can be seen......

Looks to Me as the ADD-4. It has the "Stop" which is the "-" Button and the "Record", the ">" Button. On a ADD-5 has the "Hud" or "HDD" which records the Hud View with it's Information.........Check Me, But I'm pretty sure that's it. But it's the Radio UHF or all Phantoms other than that. The Radios changed as time went. I think the last was a updated Rockwell Unit.

 

 

 

Doh! Nevermind, You found it up top. Just goes to show You how blind I'm getting..........Also ichin' to play a round of Golf.

just a status update , all instruments are working and most of the work is done

 

the unknown instrument on the right side panel is one thing i like to solve and the missing lettering on the pedestal panel especialy the one for the 2 covered toggle switches

but to get this fixed i need some good pictures or the phone number of a greek pilot :grin:

i called airbus already and wait for an answer , i was thinking to contact the greek air force but i think the greeks are not in mute to talk to a german

 

for the MFD screen i got now some very good pictures so this will be next to be changed
