8 Bit Cockpit- my sprites even look sorta like a Cruzer

I’m editing a video on this, but I’m putting a Commodore on the passenger side of the cockpit. All in on the retro.

While the weather has been bad, I’ve been learning 6502/6510 Assembly code for this project. I think my first crack at the sprite for the Zenith side view is pretty okayish 😉

Tail fitting

Got everything aligned via a laser measuring tape and some high tech tools like popsicle sticks

Then drilled out the brackets, thank god for those 14 inch flexible drill bits.

Next up is the brackets for the vertical tail and test fitting the whole tail. Progress!

Elevator horn

I decided in the month of September to have a goal of getting all of the flight controls finished and maybe even rigged.

So today is elevator horn work

Not one minute of progress

Somehow have not felt motivated even a little bit to work on the plane the last 8 weeks or so. I promised myself that this project would be something I wouldn’t feel guilty about, so just keeping everyone updated about it.

I’ve been doing a lot of miles hiking so it’s not like I’m sitting on the couch. The Zenith project will resume when it resumes. Or maybe I’ll sell it. We’ll see.
