Thanks very much but none as yet. Now the R-Pod and Vewlix have been updated. I'll be picking this one up again very soon :)

I cut the main box sections for the headrest pillar. This will attach to the back of the upper seat panel and the main, padded headrest section will attach to this.

Cut the first side piece for the headrest. This will be cloned 3 times to allow for double thickness sides and have a ribbed rubber inlay:

I cant wait to see this thing in action.

 

Me too! I built this with VR in mind though and will be waiting for a consumer version of one of the current headsets to become available - I'll decide on which one when they start to appear.

 

Sweet, excited to see you picking this back up.

 

Thanks! This project got a brief mention in the Elite Dangerous newsletter and that shamed me into picking this up again :)

Anyone who's followed any of my projects knows the drill with these steps.

Cloned the side pieces (2x12mm and 2x18mm MDF):

I still have to cut the window into the inside 12mm panel.

 

Edit: Done for today. I have some time free time tomorrow so will continue then.

dude you should finish this guy up and send the work log to the guys at Node gaming.  they've been playing the hell out of ED, they might just contract you out for one.

I may just do that Hazzard but by the time I've finished it, we'll be onto the next release of Elite :)

 

I cut the fiddly bits to complete the basic heeadrest shell. I will still need to make some internal bracing sections for these to help keep the shape together.

Flat sections:

I will probably get this headrest part of the build completely finished before starting anything else.

An am currently gluing the sections I cut earlier (epoxy will also be used once this is dry and additional braces added):

Thank you Hyperdennis :)

 

A couple more badges arrived in the post. I'll embed one of these in the top of the headrest. Haven't decided which one or what to do with the other one yet ...
