this is what i did during my art foundation, they wanted me to make some crap things…i said no and went off to build my own cockpit for my project.

i started off with a baby car chair that i could fit in, (and yes if you were wondering i had to go to toys and baby care shops to ask them if i could sit in seats). then i had some MDF wood and started build, strangely i had no design for this, i just pictured it in my head how i wanted it to look.
