    It's high time to say hello...

    Hi,
    my name is Norbert and I come from Hannover. This is the biggest and nicest town in Lower Saxony / Germany.
    My first meeting with MS Flight Simulator I had in 1985. As I remember it was FSII on Commodore C64. Over the years I always kept my relationship to FS and now as I became more time and a nice room in the basement I started to build my own homecockpit and I'm glad to see here that I'm not alone with that crazy idea...

    I am not a quite new member because I am reading here for nearly one year and already had some posts.... so I thought gradually it's high time to say 'hello' to everybody...

    greetings
    Norbert

    I disagree with Trevor.... "snicker, snicker " Crazy, depends on who your talking to. But, as my wife says, "I know where he is."

    Welcome Norbert. If you have been lurking, I need not tell you how much of a resource this place is to pit builders.

    Tracy, To quote Ed Rasimus, author of "When Thunder Rolled." My wife doesn't know which end of the jet the hot air comes out of. However, she loves for me to have fun building and flying. AND, she knows I can't comment on what she spends on clothing, shoes, jewelry, etc.

    I must say that I at least know what end the hot air comes out of...both on an airplane and from my hubby!

    I'm proud of you Tracy, you must have had your head in a manual to learn the technicalities of duct pressure!
    Minimum 30 PSI on the B737 before attempting a start, but a Dassault 900 is probably measured in Kpa!

    Silly Gwyn, we all know that Trev's race car will outrun your 73 any day, anytime, anyplace...not to mention 3 engines are better than 2

    3000 pounds of thrust per engine on an aircraft weighing 46,000 pounds is much better than an aircraft weighing 187,700 pounds with only a total of 26,300 pounds on each of 2 engines.

    Thank you for hearty welcome!
    Yes Tracy, I am married and my wife shows a lot of tolerance, but sometimes she must remind me that the sun is shining outside ... then I know, it's time to do something together...

    I think that I will soon post some pictures here from my 737 cabriolet. It's a cabriolet, because I had to made a descision in my basement-room:
    either mostly realistic and with overhead panel or
    less realistic and instead of overhead panel a wide beamer projection with 10x6 feet.
    I preferred the last one. If you want, you can see some pictures on my simple blog
    http://www.b737.bloglove.cc

    If it is desired, I can also post some pictures of development here to the photo gallery. By the way, it's a
    really great website here.

    greetings
    Norbert
