The cockpit

The cockpit

Any scale airplane model must have its cockpit reproduced. The problem with the Potez 58 is that the full-size aircraft no longer exists and that documentation is scarce. However, thanks to the Paris Air and Space Museum and our friends from the Angers GPPA thanks to whom I still had some documents.

Below, the appearance of the interior of the model under construction before any work on the cabin.

The first step was to cut the walls of the passenger and pilot cabin from 2 mm (0.08 In) balsa wood.

After many adjustments, the rear flanks are installed in the fuselage.

Then, still in 2 mm balsa (0.08 In), I added a floor with a cutout on the location of the servos.

Then I cut out of the foam a few templates representing the seats to position them and check their location and size.

ça prend forme…..
