It's a little project of display. It's a test for placing differents parts and measure. I took the opportunity to take some pictures.

Great idea for a display. Would look great as a "cut-off" cockpit. But open as it still is it looks very good.

I'm inspired!  Just got partial control panels from 42-22521 and 42-75284 and will be able to make a single panel from them. I've got a seat harness and I'm now starting to look for other cockpit parts.
