Final Bf 108 Cockpit Teasers

Post by Mathias Pommerien »

As has been mentioned we are basing our virtual Bf108 depiction on D-EBFW, a Bf108B privately owned and operated by a trio in Germany.
D-EBFW was build in 1937 and aquired by it's current owners in 2005 and lovingly restored to historical conditions and painted in Messerschmitt factory blue.
It's carrying - with special permission by the German aviation authority - the inofficial registration code D-IBFW on the fuselage as seen on a period Messerschmitt factory broshure.
The official registration D-IBFW is carried in small letters on the tail fin.
The high quality of their restoration work and their extremely friendly and helpfull cooperation and support made this plane the natural choice for the Classics Hangar.
Naturally this aircraft is a pure VFR daytime flyer and we have re-created it in all it's glory.
However, those that like more navigational aids than just a magnetic compass and a stop watch can fly the "IFR light" variant, a cockpit that is loosely based on the period blind flying variant
with the addition of COM and NAV radios, a beacon indicator and an OBS-capabable electric slave compass.
The (default) GPS can be linked to the beacon indicator.
Those that like to fly with international units can glue some stickers on the metric instruments so they can read in knots, feet and psi.
We should have some exterior shots ready by the coming weekend. :-)
Enjoy!

International units stickers can be toggled on and off. The FS icons can be hidden with a simple mouse click.
