Hey guys - name is Randy.. I'm a private pilot with an instrument rating. Lucky enough to have an uncle that is a safety inspector for the FAA.. He's got type ratings for 767, 737, MD11, ATR42.. you name it.. so anyway, I saw the norwegian 737 project guy, and got really pumped. I just started. Got a lot of overhead parts from opencockpits. I'm scared as heck that I bit this off, but I'm looking forward to the journey.

FYI - Lexington KY is home.

Hey Randy,

Welcome to the party!

You're a Lexington native...I know your neck of the woods...lol. I was born and raised in Newport... Now, I am a Wisconsinite since moving into this state back in 1991.

If you want to gain some quick hands on knowledge, you need to road trip up to Indy and visit Rob; he'll likely chime in here. He is one of the closest builders near you.

John

Edit: I made a typo in my original post, fixed it today.

Howdy from Houston, Texas! Hahaha (I was required to say something like that- right?) :huh:
I'm Kurt, 55.. 5 types, flew a lot of Corporate and 135 before getting fortunate enough to work in the training department for a Regional Airline 18+ years and now work as a simulator Pilot Examiner. Actually nice to come home most every night. Sometimes being on the road gets a little old.  :o
So amazing what all of you guys are able to do with these builds! Truly incredible the wide variety of knowledge, expertise and skill sets you guys share! I was drawn in recently to this "disease" due to the increasing realism of the newer simulation programs and once I joined and started reading what you guys were doing, it really got me wanting to join in and have a go at it.
Really look forward to learning and reading more. Seriously good stuff!
Thanks for letting me into the group!
Kurt

Kurt,
   Just curious where in Houston you are.  I'm here in Houston as well.  If you need a hand or guidance with anything I'm here to assist.  I just started developing my 3rd 737 sim so I have some experience.   

Like you I flew corporate 91 and 135 and have been flying 737's for the local major here in KIAH.

Here's my email if u need anything.   MLeavy737@aol.com

Welcome to the club:)

Hey Randy "Air up there"! Great to learn about a fellow builder in the "general vicinity" LOL. I'm in Cincinnati, so pretty close for such a global hobby! I'm working on an ERJ145 sim. Been working on it a long time - as long as you have "the bug" it will keep you going - I think we all can attest to it here!
Let me know whenever you want to chat, maybe we can meet as well since we're so close!
Good luck with your project!

This is is my first foray into building although I've been simming since MS2 (or was it 3). I ended up here in desperation. Bought a used Hispa panels MCP of fb for use with XP 11 and am thoroughly lost.

Hello all, new member here. My name is Bill and I'm located in the U.S. (southern Indiana).  I've been simming since the early 90s, with MS4 and have had every release since.  Currently I'm using P3D.  I started building in 2009 with an Akers-Barnes simpit.  Since then I've been building and modifying to replicate the F-14B cockpit.
