SOLD!! Just Cockpit Shell For Sale! (no inside items)...
« on: June 13, 2018, 10:03:11 AM »
Hey Everyone,

Okay, here is the story about the white cockpit (B727-200) shell. First, everything inside is sold and will be removed within a couple weeks by the buyer, so the shell itself will be stripped out before being sold.

Next, here is where the deal comes in, the stripped out shell will either go to scrap for the price per pound on that given day ($.30-$.50, it varies) or if someone wants to buy it for the amount the scraper will pay, you can have it. The weight is about 2800-3000lb, so if I estimate even the highest amount, that's roughly only $1,500 or less.

Thus, for a low amount of money you can get a nose section that you could make a B737 cockpit section out of by cutting off the space where the flight engineer's station is located. It's all up to you what gets done once it's paid for.

Lastly, if you buy this nose, all transportation is up to you. And, let me say it's not that difficult to do. If you plan to cutoff the back section, you can use my tools, but it has too be done outside and not in my hanger/shed.

PM me interested.

John

PS here is a link to the original for sale post that has pics of the shell. Please remember this is for the shell only:

This is a phenomenal deal and I would hop on it if I didn't already have one.

For a primer on how to cut one of these into pieces, see the youTube video on my project at:

Hi Peter,

Thanks for posting the link. I would advise anyone looking to really understand cockpit building to take the time and watch your video. You explain everything so well and thoroughly cover all the important topics. Plus, big KUDOS to your wife Alex for being there and really supporting you!

In regards to my cockpit that is for sale, I totally agree that this is a phenomenal deal! All my years of doing sim building, I've only seen about 3 cockpits sold, but none in this manner of only paying the salvage costs.

For builders out there thinking about this, I would just say go for it and not because I want to sell it. Go for it because real cockpits are getting scarce, at least until the NG models reach their end of service time(s)...

PM me if interested,

John

Hey Everyone,

Karen and I just finished loading the grey nose cockpit shell onto our trailer and we'll be transporting it tomorrow or Sunday. This is great news for us!

However, the white nose shell has not been purchased yet and I just want to bump this ad again. So, here is a chance to get this nose dirt cheap, just the same as what the recycle dealer would pay and that's based on the variable rates of the price per pound on any given day.

Sadly, if no one wants to buy this, we'll likely cut it up into chunks too make it easier to haul to the recycler. Of course I will take pics of all this, but would anyone want too see them? It'll be very depressing for sure.

Lastly, here is my new deal, for anyone who buys this, 1/2 half of the price will go to a Children's Hospital charity that I chose already. However, I will put that donation in your name, so you will be able to deduct it from your taxes. In other words, you would be paying even less for the cockpit, as well as helping a Children's Hospital...

Best Regards,

John
