Completely agree! But if I dont fit I dont fit. If I can fit and fly it safely, Ill do it. Those of us at this stature know there is nothing really comfortable, it is all about reducing the suck factor. But right now it is just safely being able to physically fly.Speaking of Model A, my thoughts come to the Ford type or maybe a Willys Jeep. If you have ever put up with one of those, you can put up with a tight cockpit.
I get what you are saying here too, and it is a valid point. I am a pilot vs builder. I have no problem modifying a plane so I can fit, but within reason. IE, I cannot move the seat if a spar is in the way, cannot move the rudder peddles if there is no where to move them to, etc.I get it. What I don’t get is why complain about a homebuilt? Why not cut out the plane to fit instead of wishing someone else did. The whole point is legal customization.
