It’s been a long time since the last update, and rather a lot has happened!
As is my normal MO, I did a lot of thinking and planning while sitting on a beach over the summer holidays, and came back not only re-energised but with a clear plan for what I wanted to achieve in the short term.
Back in the workshop some huge changes have taken place; the fold-up workbench is now completed and really nicely functional, the ‘room’ for the 737 is framed up and mostly lined, and there is now some decent lighting!

New workshop, fold-down bench, fold-away shadow-board.

*Final* startup of the ‘old’ 737, upstairs
And this is where it all went a little sideways; steep stairs and one silly old bugger trying to do it on it’s own.

…which hinges for access. The lower part of the end wall/door is separately removable for access.
First flight, and everything works!

In lieu of an EFIS panel I have critical controls mapped to spare buttons on the yoke; messy, but functional!
