    Douglas A-26 Info Needed

    I am planning to build an enclosed-cockpit A-26B flight simulator with custom panels and controls. Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate any source for detailed dimensions of the cockpit interior. Lots of photos and drawings, but not a single drawing with to a known scale or dimension of any part of the actual cockpit that would allow me infer the other dimensions from a photo. Of course, the best thing would be if I can find a downloadable solid model. If anyone can point me to a source for known-scale or dimensioned drawings, a solid model, or just a few known dimensions of cockpit items I would really appreciate it.

    If you live anywhere near one of the museums that has a Marauder in their collection, you might be able to visit and collect the information you need. Here are a few I found with a quick Google search. There are probably others; I didn't spend a lot of time looking...

    Finally, the B-26 Marauder Historical Society might be able to help.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try them out. I should point out for any future repliers that my search is for info on the Douglas A-26 Invader, not the Martin B-26 Marauder. But all the suggestions so far will work as well for one as the other. A solid model would be the best possible solution, I think, thus the post to the Solidworks Forum. So if anyone knows where I can get such a model I would really appreciate hearing from you.

    Wow! A very ambitious project to be sure - please post pics of the sim when you're done.
