WANTED: 3D model of F4U Corsair Cockpit

Hi everyone.

does anyone have a 3D model of a F4U Corsair Cockpit.

I have a 3d Printer and want to print a cockpit for my Brian Taylor 61.5" Corsair.
My 3D printer post

I'm happy to print some stuff for free for the person that can supply me with a CAD model.

Andrew.

seems that you would have a FDM machine! Just some comments - regarding the cockpit you will probably have a resolution problem making levers and details!
And / or you will probably need a huge amount of support material a better way to do this would probably be to mill the parts , stick them loosely together and make a silicone mold ... embedd the levers and flimsy parts within and afterwards flood the whole remaining cavity with expanding Poly Urethane so you would get a rather ight and detailed setup!

your right about the levers. they would have to be added later.
all the other details would happily print.

an even easier way would be to just go and buy a Top Flite model like this one. but it's just as much about seeing what can be 3D printed as getting a cockpit for my plane
