737 seat
« on: August 17, 2018, 06:35:16 AM »
I’ve been hanging out for a very long time for a reasonably priced 737 captains seat but you just can’t get them unless you are willing to pay £1000+.

I remember a few years ago some had built one out of wood. Do you know how this is done?  Are there any plans anywhere?

If I build it where would I get the seat cushions from etc?

Thanks Jack. Very useful.

Any ideas where to get the cushions and covers from?
