    Smile Steve 737 Sept 09

    Hi Guys,
    Been a while so I thought i would post my cockpit progress.
    Have been having a go at making some things myself as am working on a budget. I really enoyed making the seats- thanks to choffmanns seat pictures for the inspiration. I've also had a go at making my own side windows and eyebrow trim.
    Looking forward to making some linked yokes and have some replica control wheels on the way- thanks dodiano.

    Anyway, here are some pictures..

    Cheers Steve Everson

    Your sim looks superb Steve, Could you tell me how you have mounted your saitek yokes, They look a lot neater and better positioned than my solutions so far and i wouldn't mind emulating your way

    Re: Steve 737 Sept 09

    Cheers for the complimen Steve! the yokes are mounted on upside down table legs from a DIY store. I then made an MDF Board to fit the screw mounts on the bottom of the saitek yoke- there is a large hole in the middle of the board that the large plastic foot from the leg goes through- its about 5cm diameter threaded- this tightens down on the board ahn holds it all together.
    Hope the pics help!

    This turn out to be a fantastic flight deck! I especially like your no. 4 window mouldings. They are so difficult to fit, as they are curved in various directions.
    Keep us updated!

    Cheers

    Thumbs up Re: Steve 737 Sept 09

    Hi Steve,

    So this is where you have been hiding and why I haven't heard from you!
    Your sim is looking fantastic - any plans for one of your movies to show it in action?

    Glad to hear you are still building.
    Cheers
    Mike
