Its history in a nut-shell:
This case was made for my dad, who is a retired United Airlines mechanic with 35 years of service. He primarily worked on the Boeing 737s, hence the case design. I fabricated it totally from plexiglass. The Jet-7 is the only thing not hand-made. I even built a special vacuum-forming table for the sole purpose of forming the outer shell. The slimline slot-loading DVD/CD drive is hidden in the wing as well as the cordless keyboard/mouse's receiver, and the rear horizontal stabilizer serves as the mouse's docking station and charger. Also, I felt I had to find a pilot competant enough to fly my creation, so who better than Otto Pilot himself!
The entire project is documented in my worklog over on Gruntville dot com if you would like more information on how I built it.
