    I think this is worth an applause!

    Last month when I was flying my (old) a320 sim I concluded that this wasn't real enough. It was a ''single seater'' and the joystick was way too sensitive etc. etc. So I decided to quit and start all over again. B747-400 Project number 2. Because I'm 15 years old and still at school I don't have to spend much but this result!!! even I looked amazed. I spend for the whole set up only 120 euro's. So it is possible to build a 747 cockpit even when you have a very low budget. Please take a look and leave a comment!!
    I have to collect a bit more money but i think all the displays are working by the beginning of juli.

    Thanks

    Really proud of it myself too. I think building treehouses when i was 10 helped me to have these skills.

    Stein, great result!

    Actually the skills you learn by building treehouses (and cockpits) cannnot be learned at school, but they come in very handy during the rest of your life!

    Amazing. And incredibly fantastic. Like I have said in the past. Mdf/Plywood and paint, go a long way to adding the realism. Great stuff!

    I used to be 15 (I think), and I am most definitely not in school, but this is just amazing. I put on my nicest hat and take it off in respect for you and your work!

    My wife keeps reminding me I was never a kid...... Then I tell her I'm trying to make up for it now.

    Go for it Stijn, you may not be able to later.
