Seats

The Building of the seat bases and plinths was relatively easy, except that I was puzzled by the height of the seats in relation to the Glare Shield.


All the drawings I had seen showed the Pilot’s line of sight was to just clear the same angle as the GS.


The seats I got hold of were out of a Ford and a Vauxhall car that had been scrapped, so unfortunately didn’t match each other.


Because I wasn’t able to get a height adjustment with them I had to make the plinths an average height for all.

The lower picture is with the seat fitted in place, I was also able to use my old seat
As a “jump” seat for anyone that wanted to enjoy the flight with me.
