Here's a shot of today's work on the cockpit. View from front to rear firewall.
LOTS of space inside this thing!
The central spar is not yet aligned, but once I've screwed all the formers down, it will be aligned with the module in front, then removed.

Thanks Chief! Always good to know the Cyberdyne is keeping an eye on me. :D

I started fleshing out the starboard side and played around with my phone's panoramic settings. Really gives one an idea of how much room I don't have.

I got a lot more skinning done today and started trimming and shaping it a bit. It's so bloody BOORRRIIINNNGGG! So, I started putting the floor and interior walls in the cockpit to keep things interesting. A mate came over and asked me to modify his wheelchair, so that broke up the afternoon nicely for me. :D Cheerin' :D

Been doing some work in the cockpit fitting the instrument panels. Planning with cardboard, then transferring to ply once it's right.

I couldn't find the unit under the port-side RCS joystick, nor the piper fuel mixture lever and knob, so I went ahead and made them.

Instrument panel is coming along.

Thanks mate! :D

It’s getting very hard to squeeze in through the side of the cockpit now, so to continue fitout it is time to remove the canopy formers. At this point I couldn’t yet afford the aluminium for the canopy frame, so I have made it out of scrap wood and aluminium trims to establish the shape and dimensions. Now it is done, I have something solid to copy once I acquire the aluminium and I can cut off the canopy formers.LOTS more room now and I can climb in over the top.

That darned red light!

Can't afford to buy it? FINE THEN! I'll MAKE it. Scaled using a screenshot of the original prop and a know item that I have, (red switch). Turned on the lathe from polycarbonate rod, details melted in with soldering iron, collar is the lid off my wood glue bottle. Drilled out for a globe. I'll paint it with a red permanent marker.

Original prop
