Well I finally got two of the sidewalls finished. The upper side panels are killing me and might have to rebuild them for a 3rd time… I also got the center console frame built. The will help center the two side walls when everything gets bolted together. Enjoy!
I wish this process could go a little faster… : )

Well… As you can see from the photo below, the side wall I created was perfect! I then added the MDF skin.
During that process the frame shifed just enough and the panel no longer fits… Note how the front end of the panel raises up
Instead of MDF I’m going to cut a single large panel using a 4×8 sheet of ply and then build the frame ensuring a proper fit. Fortunately, the pinstriped panel is fine and I don’t have to rebuild either one of those.
I’ve been very frustrated the last few days… but I’ll get back to it! : )

Got started on the side walls!
These were NOT easy cuts to make… LOTS of angles

Wavey had the idea of the escape pod being similar to the ball turrets found on WWII aircraft. Here’s my take on the new design…

I created my first mold and created a few rocker knobs for two of the back wall panels. When all was said and done I cast approx 55+. I need to sand smooth and and fill just a few of the casts that didn’t set right. Sure beats making them out of wood…
