Making A Start!

On 22nd August 2022 I was lucky enough to fly a Spitfire (TE308) from Biggin Hill down to the Battle of Britain Memorial. What made the flight even more special was that my 100 yr old Uncle, who served with 611 Squadron at Biggin Hill during WW2 got to see me fly a Spitfire before he passed away a year later.

I was hooked on Spitfires! Unfortunately I didn't have the resources to buy a real Spitfire so I bought the next best thing - Flyingiron's Spitfire and MSFS2020! It was good - but the moment I saw the Authentikit website I knew that had to be the next step. I knew absolutely nothing about 3D printers, but after reading page after page of information and talking to some experienced 3D printing guys I decided that was the route for me.

The desk is in place; seat purchased and monitor arm adapted and fitted as per Phil's instruction video. 3D printer is on order and expected to arrive in a few weeks - I can't wait to start downloading and printing and starting my journey to build a Spitfire 'cockpit' using Authentikit controls. Thought I'd upload my picture for Authentikit's 3 yr Celebration competition - Not a winner I know - but we all have to start somewhere. Tally Ho!! :)
