    Nice work so far. Are you going to skin it with aluminum?

    It will either be sheet metal, aluminum, or thin plastic. Just not sure how to cut the thin metals w/o bending the edges from the shears.

    Looking good! I have just gotten together all of my Pots and other hardware, and drawings for my 737 TQ. Now I just have to buckle down and get er started...... I envy how yours is looking already. If you figure out how to skin it in aluminum, I would be curious to know how you did it.

    If you use thin roll flashing as I used, cut it with a sharp pair of Fiskars for the smaller pieces.

    You can also score the thin aluminum with an Exacto knife and snap it off like plexi-glass. This will give a very precise edge without bending the corners.

    The skin on mine is laminated rubber, styrene, and aluminum.

    Yes, Thank you for the tips!

    Question,
    How long/tall is your Flaps handle from where it exits the housing to where the handle bolts on?

    5-1/8" tall.



    Each section (or bulkhead) is laminated individually and then assembled.

    The bulkhead for #3 throttle is not attached yet, but was installed for making adjustments.
