Thanks for being interested! Maybe others can be inspired to create their own project as well. So we can share experiences.This is all extremely interesting! I'll be following along with your progress. Thank you for sharing all of this with us!
This would come into question for the later Shuttle-MIR/Shuttle-ISS missions sometime in the distant futureMan, it's really cool! Now all you need is to acquire some Russian can food!!
There is no copyrightI definitely include them in my simpit if you dont mind
I don't know what you are referring to. There is no gravity in orbit!Did you check holding force of this tiny circular velcro pads? Are they enough to hold full bag at the earth's gravity?
Please keep us updated!
Yeah it's really a privilege The entire apartment actually just is for my hobby...Congratulations, man! You're really Lucky to have such space available!!
Is it the final place for the sim or just assembly facility??? )))
you lucky.. man! keep it comin!Yeah it's really a privilege The entire apartment actually just is for my hobby...
It is the final place but not the final position though. The room is altogether: assembly, mockup and training facility. My desk is standing next to the simulator. There is even enough space left for adding a furtuer small module to the airlock hatch later, like a small interior replica of Spacelab, Mir or ISS. And one more little space between the sim and the windows of the room. I will use it for a small training device (big TV + seat) for flights with the Talon T-38 or for quick traning lessons for entry and landing and something like that.
Well, the shell won't be really something special. I will send photos of course...Yeah, the floor looks quite right and simple! Looking forward to see the shell construction
you lucky.. man! keep it comin!
Sadly not. Actually I don't have any photos of the structure. But nice findings so farMan, do you have some photos of the real cockpit structure?? I found none, only some external shots (see last 3 pics in the attachments)..
But I dug up some Buran's pics, maybe them could help you as both SS and Buran share almost the same geometry. I'll certainly use this photos as a reference to my pit design.
There wouldn't be enough space Actually anything beyond one person would be inconvinient after a few hours. But nobody in the neighbourhood knows about my autistic hobby anywayInvite them for the first mission as crewmembers, of course! With extra space food and a working Space toilet.
