    Re: Big fokker cockpit being sold on ebay

    Hi Guys!

    Ive already posted this link on here a few days ago:


    http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/showthread.php?t=16836

    I put the link up on mycockpit as soon as I saw it!

    Ian...you going to convert it to a 737?......you sure do amaze me!

    I recon he wants minimum 500.....just a guess though....worth emailing the seller and ask him what a reasonable bid would be to win the item!

    I saw that 2 hours after it went on and offered him a buy it now price immediately. For that very reason on converting it to a 737NG. But he's looking for a bit more than what i offered. So i'm going with Alex on this one. I think closer to the 500 mark, i think if someone asked him his reserve price he'd tell you but that's up to you.

    It is rare for you to see somthing that america can be jealous about. Most shells like this are in America. And theres not usually something in the UK at cheaper price than the US as far as aviation goes.

    Very best of luck Ian - if you're being serious, I realy hope someone from the forum wins this one. I want updates on the progress. It's very unusual also, to see the full front part. They normally shop them off at cabin floor level.

    May the best bid win. This will be an interesting one to follow.

    Re: Big fokker cockpit being sold on ebay

    great sim.

    Its allready partially interfaced. Many functional simkits instruments.

    The owner thought of selling it before. There are more pictures of his sim in the simkits forum.

    Cant imagine this going for as little as 500 pounds.... its not a cessna shell.

    Edit: just noticed the the simkits gear and interfaces are not included. 500 might be possible but still a bargain !

    Grab this one if you can. Btw. its not wide enough for a true 737 conversion.

    But Ian's already got a big fokker in his garage! Are you saying he might want two fokkers? When anyone visits, he could always say "come and meet the two fokkers".
