    Another newbie....yet another 737 !

    After lurking for many months I just joined up. This site's a great source of inspiration, especially looking at the guys building the non-"mainstream" cockpits which require a lot more ability and creativity than I have.

    I've been into flightsim for more years than I'd like to remember (!) - back to the old Sinclair ZX81 and the old IBMs with the Hercules graphics card, but I'm new to the cockpit building game. There's a flightsim group here in Ireland, with some really talented and knowledgeable builders and thanks to their help my 737-800 rig is just starting to take shape, although as you can see it's just at a very basic stage. I'm looking forward to a good few years of learning as we go.

    So thanks folks for such an entertaining and useful forum.

    Jon

    Thanks Goldmember, I'll keep looking on the forum for your progress also . I need to get the F/O's side soon to complete the panel.

    Michael I guess you'd recognise the seats. That's some rig you have, the kind of cockpit that gives inspiration to the rest of us. I wish I had the skills to build more and buy less.

    I'm almost at the stage of not needing the keyboard to get from A to B once the strobes are on and I close the overhead panel window. Next step will be to build a base for the whole setup so I can better position the seat rails, unfortunately at the moment I can't place them back far enough to move the seats fully. Still at least I don't have a fuselage to stop getting into seats from the outboard side ! Now if only I could find some 737 seats on J-rails at a price which wouldn't guarantee a visit to a divorce lawyer

    Cheers
    Jon
