    I have seen first hand several times the work that it takes to convert an actual Boeing 737 shell for use in a flight simulator. Trust me, the work is immense and I personally would never ever try that even if someone gave it to me. My best recommendation is this one. I have seen it and it's great and very affordable (relatively speaking)

    I would consider that a challenge and would take one if they were giving them away. Complete of course.

    Two reasons. Because I'm not a glutton for punishment and because the flying part is more enjoyable to me than the building part. Different strokes for different folks .

    And the building part when trying to strip a huge, extremely heavy, cumbersome shell with many sharp objects is much more than my stomach can take, especially when the only really important part is the interior anyway. But then again, I do have a sensitive stomach, so for anyone who likes the challenge, by all means go for it

    I'm just a glutton for punishment.

    Why else would I build a 727!
