WW1 Aero magazine's Master Materials List offers a massive selection of technical drawings relating to early aircraft and aircraft engines, including original factory drawings and manuals. View our selection online: http://www.ww1aeroin...erialsList.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.ww1aeroin...erialsList.html

Regarding the Renault, we have information on 3 different V-12 Renault Engines in our files.

They don't seem to reference model numbers…they just go by HP. There are 220, 300, 480 versions. If these are of interest to you please contact us: mml@ww1aeroinc.org.

I know its a bit late, and not really a good image of the guages… but thought this was interesting nonetheless. I have volumes of this original ww1 publication so am always happy to provide period articles if requested!

I took a look in my files on aircraft I received with my small company _ I call it the Granger files- and found 2 items on Gotha instrument panels. A G4 and a G5. The G4 is an actual photo, found in 3 sources, one from 1934, and the more find-able one is taken from a Profile booklet, I scanned the one from an unknown publication as it was most complete, not cropped; and the G5 is a hand drawing that was copied from the Ministry of Munitions of 1918, and then photo-copied by Granger from unknown publication, but in English- possibly Flight. For sure they are different. I would surmise the altimeter moved from the left side to the right side of the tach from the layout.
How do I post photos on this forum, or do I need to send them to an email address?

hmm, my screen finally just loaded after my post. The photo sent in by Stiffy is actually from a Gotha G.L. III. I have more info on that than the G5 actually. I believe the note pointing at 'bomb releases' is incorrect. They are actually fuel switches. In my G4 photo, you see them under the panel, but also, if you look to the right, you can see a long lever pointing downwards with a small valve under the pump itself; that looks very much like a fuel pump (I've held a real one in my hands) and my guess would be that the valves were used to switch tanks, and the pump to move fuel from one tank to another if needed. but I don't understand why they gave that job to the pilot- although the front observer could come back and get the work out.

Great contribution.

You can scan them to files and upload them to a free hosting website like photobucket.com. Once uploaded, you can paste the link and we can all see them.

Or you can just attach them here without needing to upload them to an external website.

We are searching for anything on
Hansa-Brandenburg W.12 (exept Windsock Datafile 61 - as we already have it).
Especially interested in cockpit layout - as WS had not much on it.

Hi Viks,

http://wingnutwings....FA17E7E767431EF" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://wingnutwings....ww/BDD219ED8C4B … 7E767431EF

The W.12 was also built in The Netherlands during/after WW1 by Van Berkel (company name) and named the Berkel W-A. Apprantly a replica is being built now, see here: http://www.neptune-a...ntpage&Itemid=1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.neptune-a...iation.nl/index … e&Itemid=1

I'll see if I can get my hands on the book about the WA. In the meantime, I'll ask on the Dutch Aviation forums fi they have any additional info.

I'm not sure how much the WA was modified over the W12 (I have pictures where it carries a Fokker radiator), and how much of these mods were done in the field and how much in the factory. So it won't be the best resource.

those pictures look pretty much the same cockpit as in the wingnut-link, it is the W.29 in the finish museum, and I suspect the cockpit to be altered either for exbition purposes or because it was used like that later… judging by rpm-indicater and my museum-experiences I think the grey bit of board as in the fotos of the wingnut link with the 3 guages was added later for exhibiton purposes and just screwed in…

But I think it would make sense to go with that layout of Rpm/ if there is no better info, combined with the pictures from the dutch replica it should be close to how it was.
