    I'm 100 miles north of you in southern BC (Nelson, B.C).

    I think everyone here is more than happy to help you every step of the way. Just do searches on previous post or start asking questions.

    Hi Autocad,

    Thanks for responding! I get up to Nelson every so often.. Beautiful town... Very nice area.

    I am just getting started on a custom cockpit using mainly computer component parts. It will be all glass with no simulated gauges. I am looking for the best 737 throttle quadrant I can find. as well as yokes and an MCP..

    The rest including the panel and console framework will be fabricated of wood. I intend to imbed two large flat monitors in the panel with two smaller monitors providing a place for the virtual FMC's, radios and other guages . I will use a projector for the outside view.

    I also have seen some nice frames for the top portion of the nose clip that will add that "in cockpit" feeling. No overhead panel though as I only have so much money..

    Thanks again for responding... This site has given me a lot of good ideas.. and man there are some fine cockpits represented by members here.. What I wouldn't give to try a flight in some of the beauties posted here!

    Thanks again, Jeff

    Actually Jeff, one of the best simulator I have ever been in was the KC-135 simulator at Fairchild Air Force Base (I was there doing my high altitude indoctrination training). I haven't been down to Spokane for years. Loved going to the "White Elephant" and eating at Swackhammers!

    Heh heh...small world Autocad... The White Elephant is still going strong as ever... Love that place.. anything you could ever want in there and a thousand things you don't want!! LOL

    Swack's is now, and most unfortunately, a chinese buffet... Food is good though... The Cadillac is still on the roof too.. The cowboy bar is now some kind of hip hop club... not quite the same I am afraid...

    Thanks for all the supportive posts from everyone.. I just bid on a projector on Ebay.. we will see what happens... Have all of the other monitors already.. I am sure I will have questions on how to get all of the monitors working at the same time..

    Thanks again for the nice welcome, Jeff
