Wanted to get back to doing our "Featured Builder"concept from a few years ago and start putting some projects in the spotlight on our page.
Some serious talent out here and alot of it does not get seen by everyone.
Ali is building a B737NG setup as you can tell and has done some pretty amazing work.
Check out the "Shell" that he fabricated. Pretty slick!!!!

i could stare at those photos for hours.

we all want a fantastic shell, and i think you need to have a look at the transition shapes here, to get an idea about the secret of the compound curves that make up the nose skin. ya need to think about the nose as a plain on which more than one circular arcs intersect each other. ie .a piece of wood can be simply bent to one radius on one end, and a different one at the other end..... but, the differance in radius will alway create a third arc along the other two edges that are at ninety to the ones curved on purpose.
To achieve the correct second/third/fourth /fifth curve on the same plain(a compound curve), an original flat surface, when bent, needs to be cut to shape and then stress relieved..... or made up of smaller sections laid in the direction of the curves index.
the joins in the curve may simply be the parallel seams of strips of balsa for example, or cleverly mitred seams that avoid third curve areas.
many people out there are looking for answers when applying a skin to their home made shell.
for my money the best ideas are the thin strips of balsa/ mdf wood, or the thick foam, that is glued and shaped.
in the end this is a tricky part. there are no easy ways out.
enjoy.
ps...it is kinda hard (very annoying) to get at all you wiring behind the mip if you cover the front of the nose with a skin. looks superb but.
but with the sys 3 card, you could wire up a mip in your living room and then install the complete item as one.

Thanks, I didnt realize that aft overhead parts were available yet. I think that's 'cause there's no picture posted in the FDS parts catalog yet.

Thanks for sharing such a great looking project. We are looking at houses, and getting ready to buy and hopefully it will already have a sim hangar built. May I ask what size building your NG is in? Thanks, Eric Tomlin.

Thanks. Ive been quoted $7600 for a 25' x 30' by 16' steel building with a 16' x 14' high roll up door. This includes freight. Ive calculated $1400 for the concrete floor at 6" thick. I feel this should hold a 737 Nose section quite well compared to the measurements your room is with room left over for a small office. Hopefully the house will be ours within a month to two. Cant wait to start this thing!

Hi Tom,
Are you going to construct your B737 cockpit or you are buying a real one?
Thanks...

The plan is to buy a real one. If not, then it will be the kit from FDS with the interior lining panels that have recently been made available from some company on the web.
