    Smile A Simple Enhancement to my cockpit with PMDG and a 737ng poster

    Hi,

    Thought id share this with you to show that from just using a poster, and materials laying around the house
    the simple improvement made to my cockpit which cost nothing. (well i bought the poster a while back).

    I did have to use my 22" screen to be able to display what i wanted leaving me with a 15" for the outside view.

    I am still researching on how to approach my main build, should i build the mip etc myself (im not that bad with the old jigsaw) or i do like the fly engravity kits.
    Anyway a few pics, please be gentle

    It looks the business, most of my mip is cardboard printoffs and blutack lol it'll be upgraded eventually but i think using cheap materials to begin with gives the proper build a kind of "research and development"
