AC Window Unit Mounting

I am replacing a window unit and want to take a different approach to the standard process. I’ve never been a fan of the “plastic accordion folding panels” and have never had much success securing said panels on the outer edges of the window opening. I’m thinking of cutting a plywood insert that will have a cutout to fit the AC unit into with the side panels fully collapsed. I can come up with a way to secure the unit to the plywood insert and can affix a plate across the top of the panel to rest against the inside of the window as the AC would. The other thing I like about this plan is the straight and smooth top and bottom sealing surfaces. Anyone already “build this better mousetrap” or have any thoughts to share about my proposed approach?
