    Hi....

    Welcome to MyCockpit....

    May I suggest that you research your venture first. You question is too bland for people to answer and this site is full of gold dust.

    Please research using this site first and open up all the possible avenues that may be available to you.

    You need to consider:

    *Funds available.
    *Space available.
    *Technical Knowledge.
    *Aircraft familiarisation (can you fly the MSFS 737?)

    What can you build yourself? Good with electronics?

    Could you build your own radios? Or do you have access to a CNC machine to make you own panels?

    What OS are you going to use, and what FS are you going to use?

    There are a million questions that you need to answer yourself first, and mycockpit is a goldmine of info, and full of enthusiasts that are in the same boat, both the home builder and the advanced.

    Good luck mate, may I suggest that you have a good read through all the posts, check out the photo gallery to get a feel to how people go about there projects.....

    Good luck...

    Alex

    As far as these two go:

    Go to my builders section of my website here, click the 737 cockpit dimensions link under the reference section. Will take you to a GREAT site, full of dimenions!

    : places i can buy cheap parts and i mean cheap?
    Your local hardware store. They have lots of wood that you put together yourself.
