    Hi Joe

    Very welcome. Nice to see another 737 builder.
    I have not been to N-E texas, did visit Houston and Galveston with my family. And once to Houston for a 10 day business trip.
    Anyway, do you have a website for your cockpit?

    Hi Joe. Glad you made it! Remind me to ask you about the "new" cockpit when we chat next time. When I think about it, it is time for you to go! Look forward to your pics.

    Hi Bob,

    That new cockpit was just too good of a deal for me to pass up. At this point it will just sit in the corner until I figure out what I want to do with it.

    If you guys don稚 mind the following is a copy and paste of what I wrote about the 渡ew cockpit from another forum. I did not belong to this IFSBI forum at the time as I would of posted it here if that was the case.
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    I picked up the Westwind today under pretty bad weather conditions. The flight deck was well tucked away in a meadow with lots of mud to navigate. The guy who I purchased the flight deck from had his brother and two cousins help load the deck onto the trailer. I have to tell you they did not let me lift a finger for the two hours it took them to load it. In the end I wanted to give them a hundred dollars extra for getting it up on the trailer but they would not take it, as they smiled they said it was all included. Mind you, I only paid $750 for it on e-bay. The guy turns around and pays each of his family members $50 each for helping. Can you believe that? It is real nice to see that there are guys out there that are good hearted. The conversation we had was golden and I think I took home more than a flight deck, some new friends.

    Here are a couple pictures of the deck sitting in front of my house. This thing is complete, it literally has everything in it minus the instruments he yanked out. Every stinking trim and panel are in it, ceiling panels are there just in my car.
    Well, just thought I would share my wonderful experience with you. In the meantime I知 going to stick it in the corner of my shop until I finish my 737.

    Happy Building!

    Joe

    Glad to see you are back.

    What a find, just to think what you have at that cost. A 1-hour 747-400 sim time at FTI is $750.00. What a bargain you have.

    Look forward to IFC-Denver and the B777 time we have scheduled. I was able to extend my flight back for 4 July. Not without a cost but the few extra days may be worth it. Hope to get a lot of pictures.

    Wow is all I can say! Can you get us some better shots of the cockpit? And while you are shooting pictures how about a few of the 737?

    Thanks Larry, definitely looking forward to our 777 sim time in Denver.

    Bob, I値l go and snap some more pictures as soon as my wife gets back from her business trip in a couple of weeks. I知 thinking that these smaller cockpits will eventually become more popular as their size makes for an easier fit.

    Consider moving

    Wow

    Must reconsider and move to the US. You have these great opportunities for buying "scrap" cockpits. Wish we had this over here. My biggest wish is a throttle quadrant.

    Hope to see more pic's Joe!
