    Focus resumed and new build has commenced!

    Well,

    After days of agonizing and to'ing and fro'ing, my focus has returned and I am excitedly back on schedule for my 'pit build.

    The Desltop 737NG has been dismantled now and all of the bits are being sold.

    I have today built the bones of a MIP frame / support, that is holding my monitors in place.

    I've also bought the FDS Elite MIP panels from a fellow builder on this site (thanks!), so they are on the way to me.

    I am a commited A320 builder now - I'm glad I have mae the decision to ''start over' and my excitement for my A320 build is tenfold what it was for the NG....

    I will post some new pics in the next day or two, showing my new basic structure.

    Congratulations on your decision. I wish you a lot of success with the build.

    I don't think I could get comfortable flying an airliner with a stick.

    So's the Rockwell B-1, but I wouldn't haul passengers in that either.

    Thanks very much guys ...... The more I delve into the 'bus build plans the more excited I am. There are so many aspects of building a 'bus that are essentially more straightforward than the NG build was proving to be. I mean, you just have to look at the A320 MIP, compared to the NG MIP ..... It's a Feng Shui thing! .... the NG panel is infested with odd switches and knobs .... and the 'bus is so smooth!

    Sorry folks, just teasing the Boeing guys

    Mike - remember, flying started with a stick!

    Boeing pilots have columns and yokes.

    Airbus pilots have nothing between their legs.

    Same holds for the overhead panel - much easier to understand and use!
