    Welcome Theo! First, let me say that you are in the right place for the best "bang for your buck".
    I own both of Mike's books and am patiently waiting on his next one. They are by far the two best resources for their subjects. With that said, I would spend some time going through this site, as well as other simbuilding sites/communities (google cockpitbuilders) to take a look at how others have tackled what you want to do. This will let you determine what follow on resources you'll want to invest in.

    Things you'll need to consider are your budget, time available, commitment of family/friends to your hobby, and degree of exactness you want in your sim. Then, you'll want to look around to see what is already available. Also, you'll have to decide what software you'll want to use (FS9, FSX, X-plane, FlightGear,etc).

    Everything you want to accomplish is doable, so sit back , grab something to drink and begin reading! Again, welcome

    Warren
