    Is this made of steel (looks like it)? If it is, aren't you worried about not being able to get off the ground with the increased gross weight?

    Thanks for all the comments relating to its sturdiness! Twice I visited the flight deck of a US Navy C40 (737-700 w/ -800 Wings) and what really impressed me was the sturdiness of the center pedestal, so I was determined to build one that could do the same thing that the real aircraft did- support lots of pulls, kicks, and being treated as a hand-hold. I had to use the real one to help me get in and out of the seat on the C40, and I knew that I wanted it made sturdy for the sim for those people who may visit and not be so careful. Aluminum wasnt available, so I had my build partner make it of 3/16" steel. It will get a final sanding tommorow plus a layer or two of primer. Maybe more.

    Holy smokes! You could bust a toe on that.

    Nice job and you won't have to worry about the dings and bumps either.
