An Accidental Cockpit 2: The carcass is underway

As I mentioned last time, what I’m building is not any kind of replica cockpit. Rather it’s a generic instrument panel-cum-monitor stand. Since that time, me, MDF, and the Black & Decker Workmate have spent some quality time together, and the basic framework — or carcass, if you will — is now coming together quite nicely.

An Accidental Cockpit

Like a lot of people, I have flight Sim set up on a PC in the back bedroom. It has a desk, and a yoke, several monitors, lots of clutter, and little space. For several years I’ve been promising myself I’d build a ‘cockpit’ of some sort, and many designs have been scribbled idly on the backs of napkins etc.
