The cockpit has come quite far I think.

I really enjoy the enclosure provided by a cockpit shell – even though it is made with cardboard for now. 🙂

I bought a used short Throw projector from eBay just £100.

The pedestal needed some reworking.

In the video I mention my friend Thomas that is great with electronics. Making the watch for my cockpit kickstarted a small project on his side with small additions for RC-planes like a power monitor/alert. If you are in to RC-flight take a look in his webshop:

    Hello Peter, first of all,my compliment for your beautiful home cockpit! Based on your result i’ve also bought a Sanyo Plc xe40 projector on ebay for my cockpit, but i’m having very bad result in term of focus and sharpness. I would like to know if you have any hint for me to setting it up properly. I’m using 1024×768 resolution in prepar3d setting,are you using that native projector resolution too or a higher one?
    Thank you very much,
    Greetings from Italy

My name is Peter and I live in Denmark.
I am building the cockpit of a Boeing 737 in my basement using my limited skills and inspiration from fellow builders.
I post my progress on this blog and hope it can be an inspiration to others.
