Hello from Kent, UK
« on: August 14, 2022, 03:51:40 PM »
Hiya,

Just starting out on the SIMPIT journey.

K40 ready and raring to go - panels a plenty
Resin 3d printer for all the knobs and accessories
Cougar MFD and a recently acquired Cougar Hotas with f-16c SSC

Am going to be on the lookout for dial sizes, panel plans and the basic frame for Left, Right and Centre.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Mark

Hi Mark,

welcome here. You seem to be well prepared with tools for this job. :-)

Have fun, and keep reading old posts. Great information is hidden deep in the forum. I thought I had read most of it, but many times (just after finishing a part) I still find post with information and pictures that would have been a great help. pays of to just go on fishing expeditions into the deep caves of the forum.  ;) :thumbsup:

@KK  K40 is a laser cutter which can be used to make very nice panels.

Rather don't let your wife look at your credit cards. Always better to ask forgiveness.  :vprules:

K40 ready
What is K40? All I know is WD40.

You'll have to forgive Klaus - when he started building all we had was WD40 and duck tape!  :D

You already have several of the latest gadgets for pit-building.  Many of our veterans had to build from scratch using simple wood, sheet aluminum, and plastic sheets.  Our hobby has come a long way in the recent years.

When you start building, be sure to set up a build thread here on Viperpits, and post lots of photos to update us with your progress.

Let the spending begin! :outthewindow:
