The aircraft dashboard

Let’s start equipping the cockpit with the dashboard structure. I am inspired by the 2 rare photos of it. I used layer to trace the shape of the table before to cut it in 2 mm (0564 In) balsa.

Once the shape determined and cut, I added sticks of hardwood and a wood piece, which will be glued on the front wall of the cabin. Of course, I paid attention to take the dimensions and adjust to position it correctly.

Bonding on the front of the cabin with hot glue

Implementation of the first details. The top which will be varnished to reproduce the wood look of the original

The glove box to the right of the dashboard

The left part of the dashboard with a device unknown by me, but which I reproduced
