Big, blue and furry? Did you just buy a MIP?  :)

Simworld, FDS, or did you go for CockpitSonic?

No fur on MIP? I always thought that stuff that covered the lower MIP edge was fur - my bad!    :laugh:


Big, blue and furry hmmm....Seats?  :laugh:

Couldent help myself! :)
These are older Ipecos and both are FO seats.

Everything works on this chair except i cant raise or lower the seat.
It seems like the white pin is stuck and cant be pressed. Would be glad to get some instructions from other ipeco owners.

Other than that, great condition and i got them for a real steal price.

Thanks again GLB! :)

The other seat is really easy to adjust height on so there must be something stuck in the other lever.

Will try to convert the FO to CO and see if i can find the problem aswell.

More OEM.

Fantastic condition.

This is the last pieace for a long time.

I have about every oem except the pedestal.
So next i will begin to interface and build the 737 structure. Using mickeys flightdeck videos. :)

Yes box!

Actually, i think this is really important to get the newer NG style, but i will try to paint them first since they cost a good penny each :)

NG...since you scrap the logic boards...unserviceable parts are right for you - if you're serious about getting it NG...I'll try to see if I could direct you to the right guy or source you one myself.

Expect $500-$1000 for these. Good news ... APU Panels...these are technically one of the "Cheapy" panels in the NG market. I'll lookup some repair shops.

Thanks Youssef but my build willluse Classic Panels that i will convert, and the pure NG ones i will use Flightdeck solutions panels for. This is a solution that works for me to keep the budget tight.

But this does not mean i will stop follow your build and be envy of your NG panels! Haha :)

My throttle is a -300 that i will not convert. So i will call my aircraft a 737-368

Some parts from -300,-600 and going for the -800 look. :)

-600? Which exactly? :)

Dunno why people don't classify -600 as NG...there's no difference between most parts on the -600 and the -800. The part numbers are identical. My elec meter came from a -600.

I think my overhead frame is from an -600. Not sure though, but i have seen brighter lightplates on the -600. Could be -200 aswell though...

Not a -600. 737-600s are part of the NG family. NG's are a lot more consisitent in terms of colour and appearance of their panels - not many variants per panel. No NG has a white overhead frame ... CL for sure -1/2/3/4/500.

The Radios arrived! Older style but used on many -800. The lightplate is busted and glass broken, but after i clean them and read the analog matrix of inputs this is outstanding value! The feel of the switches is Incredible!!!

By the way, which way is the best for cleaning white letters on the panels? Just water and soft cloth?

The radios use a 2x5 Gray Code output, Easy to wire up and interface without taking them apart.  I have 2 just like the one you have that i used in my sim , already wired.  Let me know if interested. I also have the pinout from Gables.  I even have the arduino code to make them work. :)
