Just a quick update as I've been out of touch for a while.

I want to report that I made it to Washington safe and sound and from what I can see, my sim parts did too.  Kudos to the packers in Germany.  I was about three thousand pounds overweight but hey... probably still cheaper than shipping it separate.

So, as much as I'd like to report that I am in the process of putting my sim back together, its just not so.  Since taking over responsibility for my unit on 5 February I have been on the run, non-stop.  I hadn't even unpacked and I was off to Korea and Japan!  I just got back last week after five weeks over there.  The trip was cool but I haven't even looked at my sim which remains boxed up in the garage.

The worst part is that I have to head out to Leavenworth, Kansas for three weeks on the 24th and the kicker... shortly after I return I am off to an as of now unnamed place for six months.  It looks like the sim will remain as is until this time next year!

In the meantime, I am still unpacking...

So that is the news.

Glad to know you are doing ok Warren.  I am guessing Worldflight may have to wait another year then?  Hang tough, and with any luck that unnamed place will be a safe unnamed place.

Damn...  I didn't even think about WorldFlight.  Yes, I'll be deployed again at that time.  As you say, next year.  I'm going to make it to one of them sooner or later

Hey Warren, at least the sim is sitting comfy in all that bubble wrap, until your ready for it. Good luck in your adventures!

AN UPDATE!!!!!

Yes, I'm still alive!  I know it has been a while but since my whirlwind move to Florida from Washington I have been running non-stop.
Throw in Hurricane Irma to boot, and I'm ready for a vacation.  I took four days off this week just to get my breath back.

Anyway, thought I would give you a quick glimpse into what I did over the four days!

Yes...  build 3.0 is in full swing.  I will admit to some apprehension as I've been out of the 737 loop as she sat in boxes in my garage for almost two years while I was in Washington state, I can't even remember where I left off.  I do know I was in the middle of rewiring my MIP though.

Stay tuned.

Thanks Nick!

You can't imagine how frustrating it has been to not have the time and space to build for so long.  Now I have a dedicated 16x16 foot room with a 9 foot ceiling just for my sim!

Looks great Warren. How much space is required for the FDS shell? How tall is it?

Hi Anders,

From FDS site:

Dimensional Info as Follows:
 Width at the Aft End is 8 Feet (2.44 meters)
 Length Front to Back is 7 Feet (2.13 meters)
 Height at Aft End is 6 Feet (1.83 meters)


My shell sits on 20 cm tall base and ceiling height is 235 cm. That's probably a minimum height you can use to fit the projectors.

Managed to get some work done on the sim this week.  A little update to get everyone caught up!

I got the seat rails mounted.  Thanks Jack!

I'm the proud owner of a beautiful screen from Carl's Place.  Thanks John!  The screen measures 343" x 91" including the 2.5" border.

I built the frame using 3/4" EMT conduit and used a Harbor Freight Tubing Roller to bend it into shape.  It is mounted directly to studs in the wall.

Blacked out the side windows using removable blackout sheets.  Not a bad job.

I'm going to bring the center projector back another six inches and then add the two side views.  Hope to have it done this week.

Next step is to center up the shell, then paint the cockpit floor.  After that I'll install the liners.

That's about it for now.
