My name is Peter and I live in Denmark.
I started fooling around with flightsim when I bought FS4 for my Macintosh ColorClassic – I guess that is somewhere around 1995.
I am in my mid-30ies and back in 2009 I got my first child, a son. That kind of blocked my spare time. So actually since then I have not touched FlightSim at all. That was quite an abrupt change as I prior to that was VATSIM FIR director en Denmark and very busy in the scandinavian flightsim community.
In the beginning of 2012 I (together with my wife and (now) 2 children) moved from our flat and in to a house. A house with a basement! So after renovating the house for half a year I guessed that I needed something new to spend my time with now that most of the renovation was over. So the idea of a building a Boeing in the basement was born.
“Building on a budget” means that I not can afford to pay thousands of euros for pre-assembled units but have to do a bit of research on what to do in which order and where to get the best match between quality and price. That involves a lot of DIY – hence this blog.
