    Sim Room Hath Been Founded

    Well as some know I have finally found a place large enough for a sim(s). It took me a while to actually realise the space but there is a certain jungle lying in the backyard as you will see in the images.

    The total area is 10 meters by 7.8 meters.

    The plan is to plop a massive shed right ontop of it, taking up all the space. In May, I hope to start clearing the area and then the pro's will come in and lay the foundations as well as erect the shed.

    Just to let you know, the fejoa tree which is on the right of the two together in pic 4 will be taken down and the shed will go up to there...a new fejoa tree will go up to the left of the fig tree.

    Here are the images of the jungle:




    Many Thanks,
    Lewis Simmons

    Kia Ora bro!

    Whereabouts in NZ are you? My Kingair desktop sim is taking shape in a tiny office in Lower Hutt. Would be good to check on progress if you`re not a million miles away.

    Cheers

    True!

    Good luck with it. Do you have an aircraft in mind?

    Yes I have aircraft in mind. Not publicly announcing them at the moment though I want to be certain before I say so.
    Many Thanks,
