Thanks Zemaniac - its a lot cooler than a gaming chair and it works out a little cheaper. I am still not happy with the top fairing but that is about as good as I can make with my limited skills. I will start fiber- glassing this week. The whole body will be covered in a light skin of glass cloth and epoxy. This will be tougher than painted wood and should have a better finish too. I built it to be strong enough for the motion rams- http://www.simxperience.com This will have to wait until funds alow though From what I can see would need to pay close to $2,000 for a three motion system just for the actuators and controller !
