In 2004 I began with the assembly of the mainpanel.

A Bosch jigsaw was my best friend during the assembly of the mainpanel. 
In Corel Draw I made the first sketch from the entire simulator.  
This is version2 of the push-pull rotaries. Still some issues. 
The Overhead Panel was built. Backlighting with a christmas fairy light pipe.  
The Joystick was mold with PU. I had 1 left original stick for some weeks.
