It's been quite a while since we posted any news here, but we were saving it for good news and waiting when there will be something bigger to announce. Right now we can say that there are many changes and you can check them right now!
We made ACESII Ejection seat and you can order it as PDF or physical kit with cardboard or plywood skeleton.
We also made Short version of the A-10 cockpit, cutted right behind the throttle for pilots who have lack of space at their men cave (sorry if there are any girls with "women cave" out there ).
And our last published cockpit is also A-10 but aprox. 75% of the real one, for older kids. It has lenght 115 cm, width 100 cm, height 73 cm and space for the chair is 40 cm.
You can get these pits in PDFs on our store or get the price of the physical kits, when you ask about this by e-mail.
Oh well I almost forgot! Xmass gift! Free papercraft of the A-10 cockpit is available for download here - in case you are not sure about buying full scaled beast, you can cut its small brother just for fun!
And last news is, that we are finishing work on the F/A-18 Hornet / Super Hornet cockpit! Please check first screens on our FB page and spread it around the world! This will be big, because whole skeleton is from x-board or plywood or whatever you wish in 1 cm thickness. On base print there will be photorealistic rusty gauges, but on overlay you can add frames and bezels with perfect clean and new instruments. Right now we are working on pixelated and grey versions of camouflages.
In case you wish to know anything more, please don't hesistate to ask me!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Full-scale cockpit replica of Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II aka A-10 Warthog Dogfight Boss cockpit now available on our e-shop. Yes, it is again made of fine-printed and cutted currogated cardboard! And yes it is compatible with Thrustmaster Warthog gear!
Thanks for your patience and support! Also thanks to your support we were able to reduce price so this A-10 physical cockpit now costs $100 USD less than the previous cockpit! We will no more produce the physical version of the previous one but you can still download the original Dogfight Boss cockpit as PDF in our online store if you want.
As a bonus, here is a time-lapse video from assembling of the first prototype:

We've just installed new cylindrical screen and start testing! In this case we removed MIP and using it with just two Benq projectors. Next more games are coming! Get yours on our Online Store.
Originally published on Kickstarter.
It seems that my campaign failed, we can speculate why, maybe wrong setup of prices, or we just didn't reach big players on the market. But last few weeks I am so busy with this project that I cannot say that we failed. As I showed you before, we are working on A-10C cockpit, we are cooperating with simpit.co.nz (on their Facebook page you can find a survey about next cockpits).
And last few days I am speaking with Obutto about possible cooperation. I want to have also a version which you can place over Obutto and get a cool skin.
Our graphic artist is also working hard on gauges right now, to have it as real as possible.
(Yes, we know about the typo. Sorry about that.)
And I dissasembled our last prototype and packed it to test the box, to find out how big and heavy it will be for shipping. Final size of this box is 1750x1100x90 mm with 17 KG in weight. Now i can make a deal with DHL.
Next week will be ready the cutted cockpit for our first customer along with proper package box and the customer from Germany should get it at next Friday. So anyone interested about our early cockpit, please write me to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can customize your version.
Thanks a lot for your support my friends and hopefully we will stay in contact also in near future.
So long and thank you for all the fish! ;)
We are proud to announce new partnership with SimPit Technologies ! Now we will offer also their products and make cockpits for them with built in immersive screens. Like this one A-10 Warthog, which is currently in development.
