To make this panel, we will use a 3 mm medium density fiberboard (MDF); this is a cheap material and is very easy to work with.

First, we will need to cut a square of MDF that is just smaller than the opening in the flight case. To do this, first measure the length and width of the inside of the flight case and mark this distance away from two edges of a sheet of MDF, as shown in the following image: ...
