Updated .mdl file to remove the virtual cockpit from the default DC3. This effectively allows the user to add their own 2D panel and views. By Clive Ryan.

For those of you who hate Virtual cockpits as I do, I have modified the FS9 default Douglas DC3 .mdl file to remove the Virtual cockpit. You can now add any suitable DC3 panel to this aircraft, including 2D views without the ugly Virtual cockpit intruding.

Be sure to make a backup of your existing .mdl file for in the event that you may wish to change back again to the default setup.

I have been a regular follower of your page - I am a lover of the Douglas DC3 and Curtiss C46 - I have found a file in which it is possible to remove that very nasty virtual cockpit from the Douglas Dc3 and place one to my liking. I build some original photos of the cabins and with a little program but I am old, I use the most important instruments and I like the fact that I fly a real DC3, while I ride the pilots, view of the wings from the inside, cabin passenger, etc .. I would like to know if it is possible that the person who made that file, do so with the Curtiss C46 cabin and other models of piston motors. How to contact Mr. Clive Ryan to congratulate him since he was the one who mounted the file. At the same time tell those who make the models of the Cessna, Piper, etc. Do not put them in such unpleasant cabins. I congratulate you.
