    My home made overhead frame

    After receiving the Simworld ovhd panels I decided to make a frame for them myself out of aluminium. It was a lot of work but totally worth it :

    Now, the overhead is almost finished and I decided to share it with the world

    Re: My home made overhead frame

    That looks gorgeous!!! Having dealt with aluminum myself for various sim-bits, I applaud your talent! What sort of tools are you using? Seems I have to go to extreme lengths to make halfway presentable metal bits, and they still don't look nearly that nice!

    Writing your own software for everything?

    Re: My home made overhead frame

    I have a drill press and an electric scroll saw, that's all.
    I have a Prosim737 license (for the old price, thank god) and using Leo Bodnar cards, Phidgets and some Sismo cards I luckily don't have to write anything
