Platform plans updated to 18mm thickness due to issues in sourcing 20mm sheet. 
The Build Manual download is also updated. 
Replacement plans will be sent to everyone.  If you haven't received these please let me know.

Hello all,

I've just had a question regarding the fitment of the ICP within the HUD box.  All of the parts in the platform are based around Mike's excellent viperpanel kit.  Without revealing exact dimensions for Mikes parts I can confirm that the HUD box is designed to clear an assembled ICP width of a little over 140mm with a small amount of clearance on each side.  The side panels are each 6mm thick.

Regards,
Sy

Hello all,

I've cut a complete set of CP panels from the released plans.  A couple of pictures attached for reference.  I've had a few trial fits and everything goes together nicely.  I'll try and get some time to assemble properly in the coming days and post more pictures in due course.

If you are interested in the plans to put this together then please PM me for more details or look at the CP Release thread.

Thanks,
Sy

Hello all,

Apologies for the poor quality pictures but I got relegated to the garage tonight...  It is only the firts few steps from the build manual but so far it fit's together really well!

More when I get a chance to carry on...

Thanks,
Sy

Hello all,

I was making good progress tonight... until I ran out of screws...    Hopefully will be able to get some more tomorrow and get a bit further along but hopefully you can see the progress.  In case anyone is wondering  I built it a bit out of order of the build manual just to see more of it together!

Thanks,
Sy
