But congrats nevertheless.  :clap:

Hi guys!
You already know that I have been flying in a glider for a long time. After making a simple cockpit for glider that runs with Condor2 and that I gave to a friend because I don't have space in my small house and after VIAF took over the part of the F-16 pit paying the school, everything stopped because with covid we were no longer able to participate in the demonstrations because they were all canceled.
So what to do with free time?
I decided to build a partial of the A10 II Whartog cockpit starting from a 27 "monitor.
I will use the stick of the Cougar but I am remaking the throttle from scratch. I only put three photos. Then maybe I open a thread in a special area of the forum.
I remember you and read with sympathy.
Your friend Max "lento"

It is just 3 pictures for now, but from what I see, this will be a great one again  :thumbsup:

I know Covid messed up many plans, but are you already wondering how in Gods name you had 40 hours available each week to go to work ???
All retired collegues that I meet say the same, "I had more free time back when I had a 40-hours work week"!
Still 3½ years to go, then I can experience it myself  :whistle:
