    newbie 737 NG

    Hello everybody,

    just want to introduce myself. Oh no, another 737 builder again!
    I will use cockpitsonic equipment since I live right next door to them (approx. 10 NM). Support seems reasonable there.
    I have started with the dual seat trainer to be able to build the shell around it. As all of us 737 builders, I have gone thru all the measurement scrap and I think Ive figured it out "correct".
    At the moment, Im working on the NG-style crew seat, which obviously is different from the classic style (different seat belt mechanism covering, head rest). If it turns out well, I might give you some pics in a couple of weeks.

    Bye for now

    Chris

    Having 2 engines is not a problem but what about all those back seat drivers!?

    I just caught this (just call me slow). Don't you guys ever get tired of flying with only THREE engines. And I don't need a back seat driver. LOL

    One for the money, two for the show (off)....

    I posted some pics of my NG style crew seat, which yet needs some final touch of course. Look up the gallery (Boeing, Airbus, resp.).
    And for those interested in cockpit interior details, I added some pics I took in a 737-300 and in a A320, parts you may not readily find in a-net etc. So, might give a little inspiration to some of you folks.

    Cheers. Chris.

    Yep, nice job on the seat for sure.

    Thanks for the aft window brace detail shot. It gives me an idea of the shape of the aft end of the #5 eyebrow window trim and how the brace exits.
