So, it's been a while again.
Promotion at work, 2 kids, renovating a house, where's my spare time left?!

Small progress, again kuddo's to my vsqn mate who's making all of my panels and did a tremendous work on the aces seat. He's the one with the 1000 online hours we celebrated in november.

I've dropped all of my center pedestal parts at his shed and he's doing his thing again now temperatures allow it.

On the CP;
we broke the small 5" screen for the EHSI, so a new one from China is en route as we speak.
I somehow lost the "M" push button for the EHSI from @Biohazard's knob set so need to figure out how to replace that.
Also broke the right encoder somehow so the EHSI part is on hold for a short while. Meanwhile the rest of the knobs still need to be placed onto the encoders (in the picture they're laying on the 10" screen).

The right instrument panel is also getting shape.
And the engine gauges are updated with the MLU PW-220 RPM faceplate. Thx to @Red Dog for the template.

You already have answered that yourself  :D  Congrats BTW!   :countingmoney:   ;D

Very convenient - we could all use a "co-builder"   :bounce2:

Nice job (but try to break less stuff  :whistle:)

First fitting of the right instrument panel. 2 sheets welded together. Still needs sanding, primer and black coating of course.

Screen controls are getting a place in/around the center pedestal.
The small fan with duct towards the airco piece is also installed.
