Greetings from Finland!
« on: April 23, 2015, 04:37:29 AM »
Hi All,

My name is Thomas Schmiedeke, Im based in Finland and I am a flight sim enthusiast. My home airport is EFTP, even though Im not living in the area anymore, but more close to EFHK. I think im fairly new in this hobby, as I have started my simulation career 2009, when I was living in The Netherlands.


Im currently building my (first) home cockpit, a general one as Im flying currently multiple aircrafts, mainly 737/747/767/777 and the mighty MD-11. Therefore I did not want to start building a real replica, because I was not able to make up my mind which one I should go for  :huh:

Anyways, I have managed to build some kind of cockpit in my storage room (away from my wife and the kids ;)). I have used plywood a lot to make a one seater and so far im happy with it. Now starts the bit where I have to install all the panels etc to make things complete.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself as I have forgotten to done it previously.

Cheers

Thomas

Welcome Thomas,
Great info here and a great group of folks.
We love pictures so post some when you can.
Good luck with your project.

I know the part about the wife and kids, I've got three...(kids not wives ????).

Hi Seme,

welcome, and thanks for the pictures!

Clever engineering. It shows, that it must not be a full size sim to have fun  8)

And btw: it reminds me a bit on my first setup with a thunder seat ... years ago ....  ;) ... more pics on my HP!

Hi Hans,

Just had a quick look at your site... Holy mother of ...... !#"#¤%&!!!  ;D What a project!

Yes, Im definitely not in the same league, lets see how I can manage with my project and how long it will take... until I decide to build a replica ::)

Wish you a nice weekend!

Cheers

Seme
