    Homemade 737 TQ update

    Hi,

    Finally my TQ is getting closer to being done. It's amazing what a few hours a week can do for a project like this. It works, looks good (of course it does, I made it and I am proud, jejeje...). The best part, I SAVED a lot of money. I remember when I started cutting the first parts and then putting them together, it was an awesome felling, but then waoo... this really takes time! Should I just buy one? Well I decided not to, and the hard work paid off. Next step, work on the trim wheels.

    Indeed Joe,

    It took me a few months to get to this point, but completely worth it. I used basic home power tools and it is mostly made out of MDF, only a few parts are aluminum. Thank you for the nice comments and SIM SAFE!
