    Hi Sprio.
    If I hear anything I will let you know.
    Unfortunatly as I found out after this thread there are no current TQ's anywhere, but if any do come on the market I will be sure to let you know.
    I have decided to try and make my own.
    You could try this, but if not you could try real parts, from salvage.
    Try the Airline Pilots Historical Society (www.oncealoft.com)
    or Air Salvage International based in the UK. Unfortunatly this way is expensive thats why I havent done it, but you may want to.
    I know its frustrating constantly searching but somthing is bound to come up.
    I wish you the best of luck with your build.
    Jake

    Re throttle

    Hi Spiro.
    I think thats the best way.
    I knew when I started my sim that its an expensive hobby, but I think if you can try to save as much money as possible buy making as many things yourself as you can. There are somthing we obviously have to buy.
    This may sound stupid but you could e-mail Boeing and ask them.

    Hi Spiro.
    I understand what you mean, its up to you.
    Its worth a try, but its up to you.
    I knew someone who built a 777 sim and he got dimensions from Boeing.
    But Ill have a look around for some dimensions for you.

    Hi Spiro.
    Its no problem at all.
    If you go on the website and look for a link that says "contact us" its at the very bottom of every page. When you click on the link another page opens with a list of different contacts like offices finance etc.
    Im pretty cirtain it will be the link that says "Boeing Commercial Airplanes" and you should be able to e-mail them from that.
    I flew the 747 200 on fs today very nice aircraft, all the 747's are there the best.
