Bell X-1 Instrument Panel
AeroAntique is pleased to share this instrument panel owned by one of our good friends. We welcome inquiries and are happy to put you in contact with the owner of this artifact. Please email us with the name of the artifact at firstname.lastname@example.org .
From the panel's owner, one of our friends Miguel Granados in the US:
"After seeing pictures of the cockpit of the X-1 in the Smithsonian air museum I was inspired to make my own replica of the main instrument panel. The panel itself is handmade from 2024-t3 0.071 aluminium and measurements were estimated based on the standard gauge dimensions. Still have a few instruments to get custom faces made for since they're specific to the X-1."
