BTW, this is an early non metal FDS MIP with signature panels...!!
Hope my stand will fit in the shell when I move it this Spring.

Fall was busy with some other projects.
Back in business now.
The shell is out of the box and surprise surprise, I was able to assemble it in one afternoon flat (minus roof panels)
Worth every penny...

Started at 2:00 PM
Three hours later:

Hi
Good investment (the Shell) will save you months of aggravation,,,

Gauges (on the MIP?)
The flaps is Simkit with some home made bezel.
The YD is replaced by a real (working) Hobbs meter for the APU
The Hyd pressure is a real one interfaced to climb to real value when needed.

Thanks for looking
Jack
