    Neu Simpit bauer

    Greetings from soggy, baked, windswept, Michigan USA, where the weather is always an adventure. (Get the feeling that I am a bit urked with the weather today?)

    I wanted to go out and fly my 1/3rd scale Sopwith Triplane (radio control) today but the weather is not cooperating. This does, however, allow me time to find this excellent website where I hope to interact while building my own simpit.

    No ideas yet as to what I will build though, I am leaning toward a more generic single seat setup. I own a small custom cabinet shop so tooling is no problem, I need to learn the technical aspects of this hobby. I fly mostly WWI and WWII (Rise of Flight and IL-2) for the quick fixes but would like to learn MSX better to do long distance flights as well.

    My wife has assigned me one of our extra five bedrooms as my "man cave" and I have a LCD projector system that I plan on using.

    Any directions to generic WWII simpits would be appreceated.

    I have to ask...it seems that there is much more interest in building simpits in Europe than there is in the US, does this seem to be true to you also?

    Thank you and I look forward to getting to know more of you.

    David

    i David and welcome aboard. Glad to hear your wife gave you space, I'm willing to bet she will appreciate your pit area and the time you spent there. She'll say, it's OK with me, because I'll always know where he is. LOL

    You can build what you want, it's only a matter of how much time you want to spend building and how much money you are willing to "invest." You can even build a Sopwith

    This is the place to ask any question regarding building, you've come to the right place.

    Wish you all the luck!!!!!

    Almost forgot to ask, what part of Michigan are you from? Please enter it in your profile?
