Dashboard instruments

Dashboard instruments

I used the rare photos of the full-size aircraft from 1935 to model the locations of the instruments in the dashboard.

Subsequently, my friend Alban Dury from the Angers GPPA helped me a lot by identifying the instruments. Here is his verdict.

1: Magneto contact graduated in 0, 1, 2 1 + 2 meaning Off, contact on magneto 1, contact on magneto 2, contact on both magnets

2 : engine tachometer.

3 : Low speed anemometer (graduated in km / h and called landing anemometer). Presumably from the Badin or Aéra brand.

4 :High speed anemometer (graduated in km / h and called cruise anemometer). Presumably from the Badin or Aéra brand.

5: Altimeter (graduated in hectometers)

.6: oil temperature.

7 : Oil pressure gauge

In addition, Alban had some of these instruments at the museum so he made me pictures that I could use to insert them into the dashboard.

A bit of work in Photoshop and some of the instruments are positioned on the board.

Do not hesitate to tell me if I made a mistake or if the instrument is not ad hoc …
