    Thanks all
    I have started with building my 737NG since 1 year, after years of vertual flying
    i want gladly try build parts , with rivets real dzus studs ect..
    real components are difficult to find and very expensive
    many builders dreams to have a flightdeck real as possible.
    it is possible really, and does not need always the expensive way
    i believe that Mycockpit.org helps us to realise this dream

    Greeting
    special thanks to captain ian

    To build a 737NG cockpit using actual aircraft parts would be quite a feat indeed. Also quite expensive. They just aren't scrapping that many right now. Besides most rotables being re-used, cores and as-removed parts are very hard to come by.

    I've seen what some of the actual core-value and as-removed parts are selling for and some cost more than my entire 727 instrument panel did. Korry's and switches included. Most cost more than the entire fire rack assembly aboard my 727.

    On the positive side, there is nothing, no matter how good the manufacturer is, that can beat the real thing when it comes to airliner parts.

    There are several who do come close though. Good luck with your build. I know it will be something you can be proud of.
