737-300 Sim update before the big upgrades
« on: February 21, 2018, 09:26:05 PM »
It's been awhile since I posted some pics so I thought I would show a few before the next big update/surprise additions! :)
 About 90% complete now and slowly adding the little things that add up to a realistic experience.  Big news and update coming by end of March, excited to share it with you all.

I agree - bringing an old classic back to life is a monumental task. You have accomplished it and have my total admiration.

There will be two in the midwest to enjoy visits to for CB members!

My sister ship to Robs is coming along.    And I know what Rob's upcoming surprises are as they will also be mirrored in mine but I am not going to tell! :-)

Of course, without Robs constant help mine would not be where it is at either.

Rob your project looks so realistic. I like the steam gauge instrument MIP from these classics. It reminds me of when I was a young boy and was allowed in those days to visit the cockpit. It always impressed me seeing all thise gauges.
