    Hello to you all. Newbie here.

    Hey guys/gals,

    I'm new to this world and completely inspired by what you all have accomplished in building and flying your Sims. I have been browsing through this website for the past couple of weeks and noticed a true willingness to help (something I'll need a lot of) on the part of members. So, if you guys will have me, I'll be proud to be a part of your community.

    I have decided to build the B737NG (just love the throttle on that thing) and will generally do a search on the website before I hit you guys with questions you've probably heard a million times before. However, a couple of things I've tried to get through the search and have not had any luck with are the following;

    1). I am thinking of building my MIP out of metal (FDS has a Pro M version
    that looks pretty cool and I have the raw material and a friend who
    will form out the panels in his shop) ... but I can't seem to
    find the exact dimensions for it.... can you guys point me in the right
    direction?

    2). I am also thinking of building my own shell... I like very much what Ivar
    did with his..... but, does anyone know where I can find dimensions for
    the B737ng fuselage..., rib placement, radius measurements etc?

    Thanks guys.

    Ian

    Hi Ian,

    Welcome to the mad world! I cant help with the dimensions, but if you try searching the forum, you will find lots of great links to other builders sites., and some excellent reference material for the 737.

    Welcome Ian,
    some measurements for the cockpit shell of a B737 you will find in this pdf:
    http://www.antemak.com/737/Download/Measurements.pdf
    As you will see, you will need a big room and maybe this is not quite easy in New York ....

    Greetings from Germany

    Thanks for the welcome and fast reply guys. I just realized the post that starts the thread is generally on the last page ..... no wonder I didn't have much success.. LOL.

    Nobert--- Thanks for the link... lots of information there. Your right, space is an issue in NYC, but as they say, out of a need is born creativity.

    Thanks guys.
