    New cockpitbuilder (the cheapest and the laziest)

    Hi everybody,

    I'm trying to make my own 737 NG cockpit and till now I spend about 15 euros and 4 hours time.
    Offcourse I allready had an VR Insight MCP Combo I (100 euros second hand) and a old Acer Laptop and last but not least a MSI GT70 OD. But I think the result up till now is pretty nice.






    To do:
    - Make a plate for the clock
    - Find me some nice knobs and switches (that's hard to do it el cheapo)
    - Fill in (dummy) the Yawdamper and Flap Indicator gauge
    - Find a low table (about 60 cm's high)
    - I allready have a CH yoke and old pedals

    And who knows what more (as long as it is cheap)

    Thank you. The dimensions I took from URL : http://users.skynet.be/jcordon/cockpit/plans.htm Fullscale captains side only
    By now I also found some knobs and toggle-switches identical to the 737 from an destructed Lynx Helicopter. So now the looks are completed.
    I', trying to get a large monitor (27 inch or more) for as cheap as possible (aiming on 100 euros).
    I already had an old CH-yoke and old pedals, so almost ready to really use my panel.

    You will share the fate of all of us.
    Here's a button, there's a panel and, of course, an additional monitor. And in 3 months is a 737 Cockpit in the living room.
