    Hello from michigan

    Hi all,
    I'm new to this site and am very happy to introduce myself! I am a fellow sim builder. I used to have a thrustmaster f-16 vipor-pit simulator several years ago and long since have been building a Grumman Goose flight deck sim. I'm not too far off from having it up and fully functioning. My current needs for the sim is 2 to 3 projectors and a matrox triple head 2 go system to run 3 projectors. I have a few pics of my progress from start to present. Any questions or advice will be appreciated! Thanks,

    Great choice for an aircaft. I love the Grumman Goose, and would love to build one, and may for my second project.

    Look forward to more details!

    Hi Skino,
    Thankyou for your reply! I will put better pics up next time. Do you have any pics of your goose? I would like to see them. I watched the video's on your web page. I like your web page. What part of Germany are you located?
    Good day.

    Re: Hello from michigan

    Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately, my project is still in progress. In between times I have quickly built a Bell Jetranger cockpit.
    The Goose is in an extra room in my house. I have the first renovated. Besides, I try to create real instruments. Did not monitor for these aircraft take.

    I live near a small mountain range called "Harz". Ca. 80 miles south of Berlin. The heart of Germany
