Boeing 737 cockpit building project
After a visit to the static flightsimulator of Simflying Amsterdam I got so enthousiastic that I started this DIY project to add some real-world touch and feel to my X-Plane flight simulator setup.
Due to limited space the original target was to build two cockpit panels and a throttle quadrant based on the Boeing 737 NGX 800 design.
An ‘auxiliary’ project was started to build a CNC router for easier processing of the 44 cockpit panels and throttle quadrant components.
During the course of the project another location was found for the cockpit so the original plan has changed and I’m now building a ‘1 1/2’ seat replica, i.e. full captain seat and somewhat narrow first officer seat.
Goals (in order of priority):
