Fantastic series of pictures  :clap:

after almost 10 years after I started, the cockpit is pretty finished, just some minor work on interior light and panels, so  I feel obliged on my own  to thank everyone here for supporting, helping, inspiring me .

I guess that 10 years is a nice average ... I hope to accomplish all in the same time frame  :whistle:
Note that the catch here is "just some minor work" ... thát might take years to materialize  :D

Now it's time to learn to fly the Falcon , during these years I've just studied how the panels, switches, and rotaries works hence as pilot, I'm an absolute beginner , so there is  a lot of work to do yet and mostly a lot of practice...

I am in the same boat. Frantically / fanatically (and happy) building a pit, but nada, zero, none experience in flying the thing  :harhar:  I already know that there is a steep learning curve ahead of me ...

Hoping to beeing helpfull for someone here with my filosofy "do it yourself recycling with fantasy" , I will  be here to whatch your works...

That's what I like in your thread and other guy's threads.  @salaxi54 is a great example of the ongoing creation "out of nothing". We all have a bit of a wrapped mind to see possible uses waaaaay different from its original intention/purpose  ;D
