    Boeing Boeing 727 Simulator

    Yup, I know what you guys are thinking, ... another 727

    I've been around here in the past with some other projects, but they never did it for me. So 5 months ago I decided to start over again one more time and do it properly.

    The MIP and pedestal is almost finished, awaiting some electronics and some small thing need to be done on them
    The throttle quadrant and glareshield are slowely comming together.

    My idea is to build as many as I can from scratch, and when I stumble across some real components for a good price I will add them in my project.

    This is where I'm at:

    Yeah, the mip, glareshield and gauge bezels are homemade, the other components came from an upgraded 727-100 UPS. Not really realistic to have glass cockpit buttons and an old style gauges, but it looks so awesome hahaha
