Headrest re designed, not 100% realistic but does the job.

Still sanding and filling the bolsters on the back.

Made the seat base itself more for comfort than realism. It will be covered in foam and wrapped in a suitable material.

The front parts will be built up from high density foam.

Still working out the parachute container, oxygen bottle, hoses and fabricating brackets from sheet metal.

And still waiting on the eBay shocks to try the arming handle.

Lots still to go on the seat but I'm happy so far.

Got the eBay shocks and the idea works!

I used ones with internal springs so it's nice and clean. Snaps to either position well.


The lever is just a place holder for prototyping. Final one will look more realistic.

Hi Romeokilo,

Looks like everything is working out and coming together. I really like your comfort solution and the Arming handle activation looks like a winner.

Here's a tip for your seat that you may already know.

On the Lower Side Supports, you can round off the edges of the bulges to give it a "formed" look.

See below for what I mean.

Let me know if you have questions.

Keep up the great work!

Seat had a rough coat of paint before the detail starts going on. I'm happy so far.

Next up- sanding and filling minor imperfections before rivets detail goes on with upholstery nails.
