Since the supporting structure must later take up the entire weight of the simulator, we do not save material.

Who knows whether this construction will end up on a motion platform ... ;-)

In recent months, we have been working on the individual components. Now we will begin with the construction of the shell frame.

Here we use the solid model from our previous considerations and build a support structure.

Since we want the blog mainly talk about our private home cockpit project here, we have created a special Facebook page for our company. There we will publish exclusive information on the commercial production at irregular intervals.

And today we will be on the road towards Lelystad with the first products for the fair. Logistically this is probably the biggest challenge, because we have not that big car to transport several pedestals and all the other stuff....

Christian took the chance to make a one-day trip to Dresden and visit Ben. It was absolutely faszinating to see his workplace. Ben - the boss himself gave detailled information about material options etc.

Personal highlight certainly was the first look on the pedestal prototype. Wow! Christian would have loved to take it with him. But now way at this stage building. He left all panels and MCDUs there instead to optimize fitting.

Still a lot to do until prototype is reproducable but hopefully everything will be ready soon.

The pedestal box has ventilation openings like shark gills.

To realize this feature we were forced to change the whole construction as the medal thickness is very thin and the carrying parts must belt in a different way.

The pictures show the prototyping of the gills.

This way of production is quite compex but in relation to realism it's worth the effort.
