Hi guys,

Ben along time since I added to this thread, but fr most of you that follow my Streams it isn't new to you, however for those of you that don't I am in the middle of another rebuild.

The aircraft is stripped and am rebuilding it live on stream (as much as I can) Looking to have her flying again in a couple weeks.

Replacing all the interfaces and trying to improve the "Look" to the real aircraft.  Also adding some new features to make the streaming more entertaining.

The cockpit is awesome but the cabin makes it even greater!

Thats sime nice feeling sitting in the back! :)

Trevor Hale

Yes a really big overhaul.  Replacing all cabling, Interfaces - MIP and adding a lot more simulation functionality.

The Cabin adds to the realism for sure, just wish I had more people to fill it :)

Hey Trev, I'll come over and fly with you!

That looks a serious rebuild there, I don't see you flying by this weekend...  8)

Wish I could be there to help!

When you paint the MIP, be sure to use satin or flat texture paint. (Preferably satin) Satin I think gives the best texture without being too shiny.

My favorites are:
Rustoleum Satin Granite
Rustoleum Satin Shell White
Rustoluem Matte' French Cream (Slightly Darker than Shell White)

Typically you won't need a base primer coat, unless you want the surface super-smooth.

I have the French cream color currently and will stick with it because I have a genuine Center MIP Radio section that is the same color.

If I didn't have that I'd go back to the granite color because it's bad-ass.

It's okay Jack,

I've got a spare harness from my Granddaughters pram, and because I flew gliders I've got a parachute as well... I've watched some of his streams!!!  :o  8)  ;D

LOL you guys are funny.  Joe, would love to have you fly with me.

Ray I also wish you could be here to help.  We are making great progress though.  I went with a Grey (Proline 21 is black instruments) on Grey, and I did this time go FLAT (Satin) No more shiny crap.

Switch Panels are back in, Monitors will be attached to the MIP today, and Hopefully all the Pots will be wired in gain today.  (Might even start coding)
