By the way,
For anyone coming in new, just to let you know, Phil is one of the most gifted men ever to grace the flight simulation cockpitbuilding hobby.Very few men in this hobby have the talent that this man does. Men like Ivar in Norway, Bob Reed and Joe Cygan in US just to namea few, Gwyn in australia and Phil and Rhys in UK are truly gifts to this hobby.These guys are the master craftsman tha take this hobby to new levels of excellence. Thats not saying that those not mentioned are not skilled, far from the truth, I just dont have enough space to include the immense amount of talent we have in this hobby. James Price,Mike,John Boe, Trevor,Maurice, Jack the list is truly endless.But Phil is truly special in the way he ha mastered panel design this man can make a fully duplicated Airbus or boeing overhead , so its indestinguishable from real thing. a true master craftsman and Im proud to call him my friend. Just sayin :)

Hi all. Tim where's morry? Havent seen him post.
 

I'm here. Been super busy selling my house & 'supervising' the build of new house. Will be 'homeless' for about 4 months (living with my brother actually) while new house is completed. And then the 'real 'fun' will begin...building everything my wife wants me to build and building my workshop & re-building sim. Will have to 'negotiate time 'allowances'  ;D

Hi Gary here. Been building for many years. I want to say thank you to Trevor for buliding this site and also Tim for pointing me over here. I have to say that Im extremely pleased to see Tim with renewed energy as after the absolutely riduculous debacle that happened on the other site I thought we may have lost you from the building scene forever. Very happy to see thats not the case.

Hi there... hadn't noticed this topic, so just posting to say hello. I'm Luis (31), 'ludwig' or 'luisgordo' on other forums.

I've been building an A320 for more than 4 yrs now, though I had to disassemble and store it overseas, as I recently came back to the US on a permanent basis. I am however continuing development of the Instructor Station...  ;)

Nice to see y'all around!

Hi to all
I am Dennis (or Den to my friends).  I am 56 years young and live in Hull in east Yorkshire, England.

I am a life long airoplane nut, having flown R/C most of my adult life.  Got into flight sim about 10 years ago .  Have a generic pit which can be Ga or Heavy depending on how I feel based on 2 pcs, FSX, TH2G and 5 screens (currently- but dont tell the wife!), and several Go flight modules.  Currently into adding controls, mainly home made to BU 0836x to increase the realism. also use FSUIPC's button screen on a touch screen, the aim again is to  to add to the realism by not using the mouse at all if possible once the flight is set up.

Hi Guys,

I guess most of you will know me from other places.
I moved houses last year in August, and have spent all of this year commuting to Gent Belgium to sort out my company's biggest logistics operation, so have not had time to rebuild the ERJ 145, which is in various bits at home.
Hopefully, this winter will let me get everything back together.

Looking forward to meet some of you at Leystad.
Best regards,

Paul

Hey Paul...  Fantastic to see you..  Wish I was still going to FSWeekend, but thats ok, maybe next year.. 

I hope you get your cockpit back together soon..  I am sure you are going to rework some things when you re-assemble it.. (give you a chance to change a couple things)

Good to see you again.

Best regards,
