    Greetings from Switzerland

    Hi everybody

    I just registered here, mainly because I have a little problem with my cockpit and I hope to get a solution here. (AndyT told me that all the gurus are together here )
    I live in Switzerland, near Zurich and I have never before built a cockpit. My experience with MSFS is just at the very beginning but I'm confident that I will learn fast what I need to know.
    However I started one of the most demanding simulator projects. And (as far as I know) the only one of it's kind in the whole world. At least I have never seen another one in the last 2 years.... The Super Constellation cockpit simulator. The unique feature is that I use a complete original Connie cockpit from a scrapped airplane. But that's a long story to tell how I got that stuff
    I am a computer hardware technician and working in this job since more than 18 years.


    If you like to see some pictures of my work, please visit my blog http://conniesim.blogspot.com it's in German but there are a lot of pictures.

    You may also visit www.superconstellation.ch and maybe you find out why I'm such a fan of this airplane.

    Best regards from Switzerland
    Christian

    Hi Christian,

    Great to have you here.. Well your right about one thing, don't think I have ever heard of anyone building that beast! Have a look around and poke through all the forums, maybe your answer is already here. Until then, Please feel free to post some pictures in the gallery. I for one am heading to your page right now to check it out. (even though the only German I know is Sauerkraut, and Fried Cheese)

    Best regards,

    Trev

    Boy, oh boy- TWO projects announced here nearly back to back that is older style aircraft. I love it. I would love to see this project once it finished- if you ever get a chance maybe an english language version option would be very cool too (Id love to read about it) and understand more about it all.

    Best of luck,

    Thanks guys... ! Yes there are a couple of builders around here. Most of them make some Airbusses. The most difficult part is it to get original parts here. There are no aircraft junkyards like in the USA.

    Trevor:
    That's the most amazing writing of "Sauerkraut" I have ever seen but what is fried cheese? Do you mean a "Fondue" which is molten cheese in a big pan and you eat it with bread on a fork? But that's a french word...

    regards Christian

    LMAO. I didn't ever say I was a good speller, But that would explain why Spell check didn't catch it.

    I dated a girl once (Tracy Close your eyes) She was German, and had a very German family, they took cheese and threw it in the frying pan. and burnt the crap outa it, then fed it too me and called it Fried cheese, they said it was a German food. I just assumed it was. So there we go then..

    No Your right, wasn't fondue LOL

    Maybe I should stick to flight sim advice rather then culinary skills

    In german you would call that "Bratkäse" in Switzerland we would use the french word which would be "Raclette". Molten cheese in a little frying pan, eaten with boiled potatoes and mixed pickles. Also great with some beacon...

    Hallo Christian!

    Welcome to the site. You have indeed undertaken a project of massive proportion. Best of luck to you on your build.

    I fly into Zürich often, and pass very near at the Trasadingen VOR on UL851 on my way to München. All in FS of course. I haven't been to Germany or Switzerland in 20 years, but I really love both places.

    Going to visit you site right now.
