Saying Goodbye to an Old Friend
After seeing all of these wonderful new shells around, I have come to the determination that my First shell, has got to go.
I am going to use some of the experience that I have collected over the past couple years, and apply that to the new shell designs I have seen appear.
I Just took these photo's, before I will start dismantling this afternoon.
I would like to say to the wonderful Dassault that I have.. It's been a fun ride, and I will see you on the flip side when you are complete again.

I can feel your pain. After seeing that stunning shell that Joe from Innovative is offering, I look at my poor attempt and just shake my head. On the flip side I would never fit into that shell , I'm too much the wide body. If that's 1:1 how in the world do two people fit in there plus all the equipment?? I feel very crowded in a PA-28 or C172.
Good luck and have fun Trevor.

w00t...I feeeeeel GOOD now! I got to help hubby tear down his sim, well still in the process of it

I tell you I have seen some large people fit in small places, and everything manages to work out ok
I am having fun.
It isn't as much the shells that Rob is going to build for Joe, as much as it is
the need to have something more eye a peeling. I like the idea of running all the cables through the roof and walls. Then covering them so you can't see them after the fact. Like wiring harnesses in a car.
I just hope that I can get more of the real feeling. My windows could use a rework. After seeing what Ivar has posted for his sliding windows, I was amazed. I must try to accomplish this as well.
I want to get to the multi projection image, so I must work on the window experience.
A few trips to the hanger to measure a few more things, and I think I will be in great shape.
