Yesterday we have started with the planks of the cockpit shell. We also have built two small racks where the rear speakers are hosted.
We also included a light switch on the outside. With this switch it will be able to switch the dome light on when you enter the cockpit. You can switch it off with the switch located in the aft overhead.
Also we continued with the shell building and mounted the light panels. In a couple of days in those panels I will build in the ATC speakers (a separate post on this topic will follow as soon as it is finished)
Last but not least, we started on the Captain seat. Also there I will post a separate story when I can show you the progress.
Today we have continued the shell. We got so far, that we could insert the overhead panel back into the place it belongs. Also all the electronic cards (joystick cards, LED cards, etc.) got rearranged and mounted again.
The next step is to rewire all the cards and boot up the system again, check for failures and start the repairing.
Today I have started working on the cockpit shell. In the next week I want to finish the frame stand, so that we can place the MIP and the Throttle to this frame when we move to our new home with end of August.
