Here's a quick pic showing the progress of the composite user station.
It's almost ready to paint.
It's been quite a process, but mixing styrene, honeycomb, aluclad laminates and fibreglass has made this central piece of the upper platform extremely strong and lightweight. I'm really happy with how it has turned out.
Also, today was the first time that I actually sat in the chair on top of the simulator, and I can tell you that I'm more than a little nervous about being on it at full motion
...but stuff it, it's going to be one hell of a ride!
