D_Dragon's Boeing 737-800 home cockpit

Recommended Posts

After flying for quite some time where I bought more and more hardware (and software), I started thinking of building a more realistic cockpit. I made several drawings until I was finally satisfied. Today I broughr the sawplan to the DIY store and collected the panels a little later.

 

In the mean time I have started building the frame for my new cockpit. You can find a full report on my activities (wit pictures) on my site http://thair.nl/eng/?p=1088.

 

Greetings,

 

Theo.

Fortunately they do. It is my second one, I wore the first one completely down and it had to be replaced. The beam I am planing in the picture is a 2x4 of 160cm (64") long. I almost had to plane half of it of and it took me less than 5 minutes. Compare that to a 'manual' plane ;-)

Who needs 5-7K's worth of plastic panels when your a dab hand with a saw, eh?  B)

Will be watching this build closly, thanks for posting :-)

Don't think that I have lost my appetite for finishing my cockpit, but a little over a week ago I had a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. At the moment I am back home but still recuperating and awaiting a tripple bypass in about four weeks. I don't think I will be able to work on the cockpit in the meantime, but you never know..

 

Greetings,
