This Week's Progress:

Better now than never!

I just made the simulator 5% fatter. Now it's about 2" wider, and fits everything much better. 
It forms better to the cabin sketch, and the panel no longer "runs into" the sidewalls.
Chugging along slowly with CAD. Need to put more work towards this.

Tip of the Century!

Be yourself! Everyone else is taken 🐮

Your simulator might not look like someone else's, it's the journey that matters. It's fun to see other simulators grow and develop, but you should be interested in yours!
You are capable of great things.
