    Seristee,

    You have come to the right place. All the information is here in the forums for where to start. Try looking around and reading the posts. Once you have poked around you should be ready to start.

    You will first need to decide a couple of things. Based on the amount of room you have, do you want to build a shell or not. Single seat or duel seat. This is the number one decisions.

    Once you have figured these out. Look around in the photo gallery and have a look at everyones projects.

    It's great to have you here. and feel free to ask as many questions as you would like.

    Best regards,

    Trev

    Cockpit Building

    i want to first start with a single seat cockpit but not the full cockpit shell. just the captains panel and the overhead for now.

    Welcome Seristee!! You will find what you are looking for here. Just do some research and look around, you are heading down the road many have started but far fewer have finished. (I don't think mine will ever be done, but I can fly it!) Keep in mind with a half 737 MIP you don't get the Gear Handle. For that you have to build a little more then half the MIP.

    Hey Seristee,

    I only came to this forum 3 weeks ago and I have to say it is an absolute godsend, full of clever, experienced and very helpful cockpit builders.

    If you are starting out and want to build Captains Side only, you might want to look at the "Desktop Captains Panel" from Engravity (unless you're looking to build yourself?).

    Check out; www.flyengravity.com

    Cheers - PS. I love St. Lucia, been to the Caribean a number of times, love it!

    i looked at a quote from ma shipping agent for the engravity panels and they are last resort. it would cost me 3 times the cost of the panel to buy, ship and clear it at customs. i come from a family of carpenters and joiners so building the panels is my first option. been looking for some plans on the forum and haven't found any so far. anyone know where i can look
