The Tub

This is the principal part of the simulator. It will hold the center console, the glare shield as well as the ACES-II. As this part is supposed to be very stable, I made it of 17,5mm plywood, which makes it quite robust. I recommend to build the casing this way, as it might be possible that some friend with some overweight wants to get into the simulator and supports all his weight on the sides of the simulator-casing (I had that experience already). I am glad to tell you, that the construction took all the stress without any harm!

In order to make it easier to imagine the shell, here some pictures about the "internal life". You can see the positioning of the speakers as of the rudder pedals.
