737-800 Project FOR SALE in Georgia, USA
***** SALE IS PENDING *******
I have decided to sell my Boeing 737-800 project, which is located in Georgia, USA. I would like to first try and sell the project as a whole before resorting to parting it out. I put together a quick website which details everything included, as well as a ton of photos. I am not selling because of the economy or anything like that, I simply don't have the time to put into this particular project any longer. I may start a smaller GA project in the future.
Please visit the site and contact me if you are interested.
Note: Control columns shown in my photos are not interfaced or structurally installed.

Sorry to see you quit this project !
You had so much done allready !
This project will be a bargain for anyone who gets it. Its worth much much more !!
I'm sure you can sell it in one piece !
(if not, i want the shell <wink> )
Honestly. This should go in one piece.
Great sim ! I think i would be crying if i had to part with it

It's alucky guy that gets to buy your sim mate, if I lived anywhere in the states I'd be on my way with a van and a wallet full of cash with your name on it.
If for some reason it doesnt sell I will happily buy some bits and bobs for definite.
best of luck, I hope it finds a new home with someone who's willing fly a good few thousand hours in it

Yes, the current price is a bargain --- but the catch is the buyer would need to come and pick it up at their expense. I don't even want to think about crating this thing at this point. I would obviously assist in tearing it down, and help load it into a truck, etc....
Also, there is still a good amount of work to be done-- window installs, interfacing, control column linkage, overhead, throttle conversion, etc...
It's real worth is in the sum of all the parts. A GREAT start for a new builder.

you must be gutted !
it would break my heart to part with something like this.
and as david said, if you dont get to sell it as a whole, i also would be willing to
offer for parts. but hopefully you get to sell it complete.
parting out something of this magnitude would be painful to say the least.
best wishes for the future and good luck with finding a good home for your 'baby'.

Thanks to all who have contacted me regarding this project. I want to reiterate that the computers and software are NOT included with the purchase. Also, please read through the text on my website, don't just look at the photos
It is not a turn key, fully functional simulator--- still lots more to do. A method for installing the slide windows needs to be brainstormed, as well as control columns. The overhead needs electronics and interfacing, as does the pedestal. Also need to brainstorm rudder pedal design, and throttle conversion. As with everything in this hobby, there is usually no official way to assemble and install items, it requires the ingenuity and skills of the builder. That said I am sure you have what it takes to complete this project.
It is a great collection of parts and a real value for anyone who wants to buy it as a whole.
In summary, it would be nice for the buyer (whoever this may be) to come down to my location so I could go through everything. It would also be helpful to any buyer if we disassemble the project together.

I'm very sorry to hear you're selling. I don't ever see me parting with mine.
