Today we had a visit from the client and did a mock up of how the new control panel will look, its a really useful exercise as you can see if the scale is correct. Plus the mounts for the new radar arch have been fitted.

We were also able to design a bespoke cockpit dropleaf table and demonstrate how it would look to the client.
