Yeah, in your case Hans Dieter, you can only hope that you got the F-16 dimension correct. I guess a few mm off would not hurt too much. But I am waiting for the canopy frame that Kukki will offer here, a few "VP months" from now   :whistle:    :D
When I have the (or a) canopy frame, I will build the outside of my pit fitting the given size of the canopy frame. So, I am good whatever the dimensions will be (within limits  ;D )
I am not planning on adding the "glass bubble".

HI guys,

the right console is very close to be finished. It was a job of a couple of hours to adjust the DZUS-Rails to make all panels fit perfect.
Have a nice day

Hans Dieter

Sweet   :bounce2:
I remember I was very happy when I got to this point.
After all the hard work, fitting the first set of panels gives a tremendous boost to continue.

Enjoy the cool looks and start making plans for new close-to-reach goals   ;D

Hi Henki,

it gives me comfort that you call this job "hard work"(those who use wooden frames have a considerable easier job). I estimate I spent about 30 hours in adjusting the rails. But - you are right - really looks great when it´s finished  :yihaw:.
