Well Tim said no exceptions (some remnants of FlyByWire mentality, hey?)  so I will gracefully comply.
Of course most builders have seen my posts elsewhere and I am the same person..guaranteed.
My 737 NG is taking shape. All hardware done except yokes and pedals, Shell and liners come in next week..will be busy with interfacing this winter. 95% FDS.
Lets have fun in this new home
Best regards.

Thank you very much Tim...
Soon I should have some more pics of the FDS CDU's in my setup opn my site. I have some some problems with my site actually and am unabble to publish them. But soon you will see it...
BTW I am pleasantly surprise to meet here many persons I know since a very long time as precursors in the cockpit construction domain! Both of you Tim, Jackpilots, Trevor, Ivar, Bob, Tomlin, Bryssidave and many more. These are very active builders that I know one way or an other since the beginning of my project.
So a big HELLO to all of you there :)

I told you guys!!  Phil's sim is really amazing and probably one of the closest to the original beast in its appearance and working systems.
Keep sending us pics Phil, (visuals????)

Cheers

WOW WOW WOW

Phil!!!!!!!!!!

It looks just like a real aircraft. It is unbelievable. I love it. These shots tell the story very good. You have invested a serious amount of time and money on this. Very impressive. I am almost speechless.

Cant wait for more shots.

You are a kind man also. Let your wife watch TV when you fly. Not bad at all. I thought the wifes mostly were running between the sim and printer with charts and weather reports ;D (Hope Tracy dont read this)  ;D

ahh, you are one of the lucky few that got the parts :)

They sure look good. Too bad they were not serious to all their customers. Looks like high quality items.

85% real stuff. Man, that is awesome. You got most of it working also? Bet that is a lot of work. Easier with aftermarket parts for sure.

Aerodeck had a good thing going if they could have followed through.

I thought about offering to mod real equipment for simulator installation, but there are so many different ways of wirin g this stuff it's pretty impractical from a reverse engineering standpoint.

Maybe that's what got them.
