Next on the panel cutting is the map box. Before I can put the map box in, I needed to fabricate a door for it. I took a bunch of measurements and then made the cut. It took forever to get it just right. I am pretty satisfied with the results. I think making radius that look good is very difficult. I also needed to sand down the front of the map box to make it even and as square as possible. It is tapered a little bit. I decided to make the bottom level with the fuselage and have the top taper back. Should work. I still need to figure out what kind of hinge I want for the map box. I would love to have a concealed hinge, but I can't find a suitable one. I can always put this decision off a little. I have all I need to cut the hole in the panel and get everything attached.
