Thank you. For the first time I'm really happy with it  ;D
Today I finished the left GS and sanded the parts prior to painting. Now I wait for the RAL9017 to arrive  :reading:





I also modified the CPD to fit the new Samsung Tablet...

The next step was a working DED and so I tried the G15-way.
First step: rip apart the G15:



Then the DED-Box build of PS-plating:



I left space for the buttons of the G15 so I can still navigate the Display:



Let there be color   :yihaw:



And the final test... is it still working?



But where's light there will also be shadows: As the cable is much too short to mount the PCB of the G15 I ordered a new ribbon cable. But after I installed it, the Display showed only an orange glow - no more content anymore. First I thought that I killed the electronics, but with the original cable it still works.
I took a FFC Type B 32Pin 0.5Pitch AWM 20798 cable for it - I think the same cable as the original one. Maybe it's too long with 50cm and I better choose a shorter one?
Any idea or anyone who build a DED from a G15 too and knows the right cable for it?

Until today I couldn't aquire the right ribbon cable for my DED. So I had to go the other way: drill a hole in the CP to fit the G15's PCB. Not beautiful but it's the only solution at the moment.
But I'm going to build a complete new CP anyway because there are a few things that bother me. But it's the same as in scale model building: the first kit is for learning and only prototype but there can be always a second kit to do things right  :D

As I'm not running BMS the DED is driven by AIDA64 - so I could customise the display and switch between 4 different ones. Between fake data from a virtual F-16 there are things like temperature, CPU usage, a clock, usage time and so on.



Now I just need a green filter foil for it and my first revision of the DED is finished.

I also worked a little bit on the ACES replica and slowly it's getting ready for some primer.



But what's that???  :o



A big mistake was made by me, the sides are too narrow and so the shoulder harness handle wont fit under the armrest...  :rambling: :brickwall:
But I will keep it like this. To change this most of the seat has to be modified - and I don't want to do that (what I've said about prototype in scale modeling..?) even it's really annoying.
I used PS plating for the details as it's easy to cut, sand and glue and also it's really leightweight.
So the whole seat weighed only 19.5 kilograms.

Then I build some detail parts for the seat like the FDR, FDR mounting and some other bits.
Oh, and of course I received some little toys for the further progress of the pit  :yihaw:
