    73G Pit First Pic

    Hello all

    Just a quick photo of my 737NG pit, which is finally starting to come together. Now that I've started receiving parts and putting them into action, I really see why the bug has bitten so many people here. This is totally addictive, whether it's working on FSUPIC offsets or fabricating parts to make "this and that" work.

    Thanks to all who've provided so much valuable assistance on the way for me. I couldn't have done it without this great community

    What a hobby!

    Excellent sim, i love the backlighting. I think a sim always looks better in the dark all lit up. IMO

    Thanks!

    Last things first -- TQ is the Symulatory version, purchased from Flight Simulator Center.

    Specs as follows

    FS9, Project Magenta

    Running 6 PCs:

    1. FS9/WideServer/PM Systems, PM Boeing MCP, PM Sounds, FDS InterfaceIT
    2. Capt PFD/ND/PM Sounds
    3. FO PFD/ND/PM Sounds
    4. EICAS
    5. Capt FMC
    6. FO FMS

    MCP/2x EFIS are from CPFlight, TQ as mentioned from Symulatory, everything else pictured at this point is from Flight Deck Solutions.

    The visual system will eventually be 3x Optoma EX525ST short throw projectors coupled with TH2GO and SOL7 on a 24' curved projection screen (hand made).

    Still awaiting: FDS Interior liners, rudder pedals, SISMO Gold overhead, pedestal/fire panel (haven't decided yet), and lots of bibs and bobs like clocks, FI flaps/brake pressure gauges, Capt tiller, etc. etc. etc.

    Thanks for the interest!
