Great, thank you. I seem heavily motivated once again, folks…
In the last three days, I have nine "new/old" to add (though most of them were fixing many things), a few are new. They do look better, (yup) thanks much.
There is nothing worse than starting something, and leaving it unfinished. I will deliver some goods Friday, hopefully (ambitiously) maybe 12 complete, some new, and some touch ups. Hopefully France will will have representation, I am having a slow down for the new color-coded backgrounds.

Much appreciated! I am now back in overdrive, though I had myself spread way too thin the last 3 days, and am way behind "my schedule" (as it were)… Gotha is next in line, though there are numerous stations on the behemoth, I have a rough version of the pilot station, ready to go. Nieuport are near complete.

These completed/updated RoF Cockpits are included in this Folder for Download:

Hello Mandelbaum,

Thanks a lot. This is awesome stuff. Is there any reason you put them all in as .pdf except for the Fokker D VII (this one is in word format)

Great stuff. Looking forward to the big planes.

:D

Hallo Mandelbaum.

Great stuff buddy, great stuff

Just want to point out that you got a zip within the zip, both have the D VII as a doc file, whereas the rest is pdf.

Still great stuff.


:S!:

I have finally (again) been working on these Cockpit Views lately, adding and tweaking hear and there.. This version has a Gotha GV sample, and a new style update for Spad XIII.CI, and researching the added DFW C.V…

These completed plane versions are included in this Folder:

http://www.mediafire.com/?c28xdtdkpqw66da

Airco DH2
Albatros D.II
Albatros Va
Fokker DVII
Fokker EIII
Gotha.GV (Sampler and incomplete)
Pflaz D.III
SE5a
Sopwith Camel
Sopwith Pup
Sopwith Triplane
Spad XIII.CI (got a good updated page).

Most planes have now been converted to a more condensed Appendix, and tweaks, reading should now be a bit more intuitive, and (well, easier I suppose)…

Cheers and all that!
thanks for the support…

…has been corrected, beer I need beer more beer :roll:

Hello Mandelbaum,

Fokker D7 cockpit is still in doc form. Above link does not work. I copied and pasted it into the browser and that did work. Perhaps you should use the URL tab to insert a link.

Thanks for all the hard work mate. Thumbs up. :S!:

Just an FYI. These are very useful, especially to newcomers however have you every printed one out? You really need to change the backgrounds so they do not use up ink cartridges. Thanks.

Awesome work! Sort of reminds me of the "good old days" of 600 page manuals!

As for the magneto switches, etc..I'm not exactly sure they were ever there. I know that the pilot's mechanic did most of the work of starting the engines. I believe it was more like "Hey, gearhead! Start it up! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR (thumbs up)" than the pilot flipping a bunch of switches and just having the mechanic start the prop.

From all that I've read of first-hand accounts from pilots, they really act more like they're at the whim of fate when it came to managing the engine while in the air. At least if you have to stay in the cockpit like in a single-seater or just glued into your seat as we are in video games.

Maybe the dials and switches aren't actually missing and were just never there to begin with! It is just a high-powered kite after all. Aircraft were at the bleeding edge of technology during this time, and the mass produced combustion engine really wasn't that much older in comparison.
