  1. Hi Marco.

    What a beautiful cockpit – like the Queen. Many of your opinions are mine too.
    I’m building a 747 Simulator, using FS9 und PMDGs 747-400. It should be Lufthansas first -400 called Berlin. It’s already out of order. You can see the projektstatus @ youtube. Search for “Pmdg based Homecockpit part 2”.
    I’ve never seen a real 747 cockpit. So all my measurements are based on a few internet posts and many photos. Last year i bought a 3d printer, this year a cnc mill. All overheadparts are ready. It will be the first part with real dimensions, because i’ve started with saitek products and a vrinsight mcp. Everything will be rebuild with my new possibilities through the cnc mill. But i need correct dimensions and angles. Could you offer that?
    What is your base software? Do you use ProjectMagenta?

    Hoping for your reply,
    Kind regards, Stephan from Germany

    1. Hi Stephan thank you very much, I am sending you the dimensions I have via your email, these are very accurate and taken from real blueprints. let me know if you need anything else, marco

  2. Hi Marco
    I visited your site today for the first time.
    Great 747-400 Cockpit!! congratulations!!
    Your whole cockpit space is really real.
    I made up 747-400 cockpit over 10years ago.

    I used FS9+ProjectMagenta for the cockpit. I agree with you that 747-400 is the most attractive plane.
    My project had stopped for over 10 years, but now I’m building entirely new cockpit. Of course it is 747-400!!
    I made my Former cockpit almost by my hand. But now I’m building new cockpit by using almost real parts (real 747-400 or real simulator). I already succeeded in moving auto throttle.
    I’m glad if you could mail me and exchange information.
    best regards

  3. Hi Marco,

    i am contacting you for the same reason as Stephan did about 747 simulator dimensions. However i am building a 747sp not a 747-400 and from some research i found out that the cockpit is about the same size as a 747-400, so i looked at flight deck solutions and saw the huge prices of the cockpit shell, so please could i politely request some dimensions by e-mail. By the way your simulator has to be by far the best scratch built one i have ever seen.

    Thanks
