Last year, via a link on a flight sim forum, I saw a video of an American flight simmer who bought a B737 cockpit (from a plane due to be broken up) to adapt for fight simulation in his garage.
I have seen pictures of other flight simmers who have rigs more enhanced than those which the vast majority of us have.
In the past few days on a European retail flight sim site, I have noticed that you can buy for flight simming a specially manufactured USB plug and play B737NG Overhead module for about Euros 6,300 and a Main Instrument Panel for about Euros 7,300.
In the course of searching a different topic at the weekend, I came across a fellow's website about him building a flight simulator using B737 parts. He is a lot closer to home - Hobart, Tasmania. His explanations and pictures are interesting. He buys and sell various Boeing cockpit parts.
His website is w.w.w.Flaps2approach.com
I wonder whether he is a member of this Forum or a customer of PCA Aust when it comes to software.
Does anyone know anyone else doing this type of thing in Australia. It seems the type of thing which should be right up CaptAus' alley!
