Since SimVimPanel v4, the new B58 module has more precise instruments positioning and updated/corrected instruments.

The main left panel for a 22"-27" monitor can be used either as a single panel or in pair with the separate right panel. Variants of the main panel are provided for Baron 58 and the single-engine A36 Bonanza. An alternative version is provided for B58 with older instrument coordinates, for those who started building a B58 panel before the v4 update.

Here are the cut-out dimensions (real size, in mm, 140 DPI) for the Baron 58 SimVimPanel. The template shows the part of the panel with all correct distances between gauges, not related to the monitor start coordinates, because you can place the panel as you need on any screen and save the position in the program.

On this page you can read more about using LCD monitors of different sizes for any panel: SimVimPanel notes

Select the panel cutout template for the B58 SimVimPanel depending on the methods of making bezels for your cover panel.

The simpler option: you have just a bezel outer ring with glass, glued to the panel surface. In this case you should have smaller diameter of the instrument cut-outs (70-72mm for 3.125" gauges)

Or you can make the bezels that are inserted into the cover plate of your panel. In this case you should cut the holes with full 80mm diameter.

The panel cutout template above has been made as close to actual dimensions as possible. In the picture on the right, you can see how SimVim template fits with the cover plate of the real B58.

Premium panel modules

Alternative wide-screen variants of the panel.

Wide panel: pilot side with radio stack.

Full panel. Cropped on the sides, leaving out the clock and copilot turnslip gauges.

If running this or Extended module on a single display, it's recommended to be at least a 4k screen for gauges to be well readable.

Extended panel. Includes all gauges from both pilot and copilot sides with cockpit graphics.

Note: running this module on a Raspberry Pi will disable the cockpit background graphics due to image size constraints.
