I hope noone will take the following serious:

This reminds me of the fact that creek people simply copy existing technologies.
They even copied the latest version of the F35:

(Hope you like it)

Saved by your first sentence! By the way, you mean the fellas that live up the creek?
I thought it was the Chinese who copy everything!
Aren't we all actually copying existing technologies in this very forum? hmmm, i could've sworn we do..

Anyway, i finally did some work on the O2 bottle holder:

Most parts are aluminum sheet. I think i'll have to bolt the 'bottle' to the valve a little more in order for the manifold to be positioned some 90 degrees clockwise, so as not to interfere with the left panels...  ;)

Thanks Thunder, nope, nothing new on the cockpit front. In fact, i might not have any news from now on, as i'm getting a divorce...  :whocares:

Woah, that is not good news at all. I feel for you. I have been through one also and at the time you feel like your world is ending, but I can tell you that in time it will all work out for you.

That's bad news Salaxy  :(
I am sorry to say "been there, done that" ... That was 5 years ago. Just last February the old house got sold. I have had 2 mortgages for 4 years, and still managed to start this crazy hobby!  :whistle:  (ok, budget was/is tight)
Don't say that there will be nothing new to report ... You are the master if it comes to making something great from what most of us would consider wood for the furnace  :thumbsup:  And, constructing and building a part will be a great distraction from day to day troubles.

Take care,
- Henk.

Thanks fellas, you're all great. Your words are moral support for me!  :thumbsup: I'm planning on getting started again perhaps in a month from now, so i can build the side cases (L-R) and prepare for the panels. This way, it will be a whole lot easier for me to have the 'bulky' work done before i move to the new apartment. As i figure, i'll have some fast building done, and make things in such a way to be able to detach and attach parts easily. For the time being, my free time is spent in packing my precious gear (other hobbies) and personal belongings. The new play room will be luckilly bigger than the one i was planning to host the cockpit. I'll let y'all know when i start again.

Hey Salaxy,

good to hear (read  :D) from you again.
Great that the sun starts to shine again for you.
Prospects are good, moving to a new place to call "home".  :thumbsup:
That is always a good thing.

Take care, CU!

Finally managed to finish the seat's back cushion. A few minor touches left here and there, but overall, the hard work is done..  ;)
