    MD500E Update

    Hi all
    Been awhile since any updates on my MD500e simulator.
    Spent the afternoon on Sunday working on the simulator and while there is a lot of work to go here is some progress so far.






    It was all roughly put together to give me an idea on how thing are coming along

    Looks awesome. Great work.

    Did you start off with some shell parts or are they all hand made?

    Thanks Ronson2k9
    Apart from the bare frame which is a hughes 300, all the door sections and center window strips have been fabricated

    I thought I recognized the 300 in there . Perfectly cool though. Will you be putting in glass or leaving it open?

    Re: MD500E Update

    I would like to enclose it with something if I can ,but not sure what would work given the curves. Thought about using a very thin tinted plastic but not sure if that would be flexible enought to keep its shape
    given the direction of the curves.
