Big thanks to him. He has been in the background on the webpage but is a huge part of FDS and his contributions are endless.

That last image tells it all: forget the outside! It's like a woman: The inside is what counts in the end. Seriously.

The ouside won't be of any interest anyway. Love the flat spot on the aft roof portion - seems like this goodie will fit in most homes!

Can't wait to see the rest!

Peter? Give Shawn a cookie. He looks hungry! Very Happy

Thanks for the shot from the new shop.

Peter

I really like this look. Very Happy With the top flat it really helps for the ceiling which I have only 213cm in height. I think the width looks Ok for me as well. Have approximately 230cm of width.

It may be a 737 but I am sure a 777 MIP will look fine in there as well. Not going for the 100% replication anyway

We had to look seriously at the B737 Nose vs the A320..
no yokes or heavy duty mechanicals to deal with so height was not a big issue. For the NG it can be...
this is designed to ship easily from FDS.. Get in your home, go together, Come apart easily (in case of spousal issues, moving etc) and last for years.. Height is a huge one.
Projectors are an issue as well. Space required above for those.
Folks are asking about mounting projectors to the NOSE.. Possible but if you shift your butt and shake the Nose by 6mm you will multiply that by your Projector distance to equate the "out the window" shaking... subsequent stomach inertia, mulitplied by distance .. you get the idea.. not pretty. Wife really upset..

For those wanting to know Size info on the B737NG Nose Sectional:
Width at the Aft End is 8 Feet (2.44 metres)
Length Front to Back is 7 Feet (2.13 metres)
Height at Aft End is 6 Feet (1.83 metres)

Not likely as big as people think. The Pilots are sitting very "up front" in the B737 and that section is quite tapered as you may know from pictures.
A real bonus when you are making one of these setups in a house!

Pricing. These units will likely be made in runs of 4-6 units.
With that in mind we will be making them available in two ways.
"raw" unfinished for $1999.95 plus shipping.

A Painted version will be available and that will be primed/painted with Epoxy based paint. Black is planned. A Painted Nose Sectional will be $2499.95

Most shipping into the US is about 250-350 depending on how far from Toronto, Ontario. Shipping to Europe is by air and we ship to the largest nearest airport. You would pick up from there after clearing it through customs (same as our Dual Seat Units).
Cost to most countries in Europe for this is 350-500cdn depending on distance. Surface Shipping is likely half but time is a factor.

Keeping in mind that we are emulating the B737NG with these items and your setups (as opposed to a Sopwith Camel!) the value in this item is very high. Being able to full immerse yourself in your sim is something that goes a long way in the creating of a real simulation. Imagine the interior liners all to follow and filled with IBL panels.. almost brings a tear to your eye huh?
We get that here.. Smile

Hi Pete

Any idea what sort of dimension a 777 version would be and also do you have any plans to produce one at the moment ?

Kind regards

I'm starting to look for the shell (planning). Since all my parts will be FDS, the sizes won't be the issue here. But, one question I have is the following:

Question I'm trying to build it as real as possible, so or there or will be there parts be available on interior linings by FDS?

Any ideas...

Thanks,
Geert
