Building the seatrail

When I flew the sim I realized that the position of the seat wasn't completely ok.:
The backward angling was too big, so I couldn't read the MFDs. Also the height of the seat was adjusted with some wood..
Also the seat was a bit wobbly.

In the real F-16 the seat is running in 2 rails up and down and I wanted to replicate this feature as good as possible..
The first step was to mount two aluminum angles to a board which was cut to be exactly as wide as the back of the seat.

The support of the seat has been inforced with a board, where the railsystem can be mounted.

Looking good so far:

Next steps:
* add another angle to create a closed railguard
* mount the railsystem permanently
* and of course paint everything
