So, while I’m laid low with my ear infection, I’ve been planning. The two more important considerations at the moment are the overall dimensions / positioning of the shell, and the visual display system. You can’t separate these two unless you have so much room that you can afford to place a projector anywhere you like and still get a big enough image.
First up, I measured the dimensions of my build room and was disappointed to learn that they were a mere 3.6m x 2.6m. A full-scale B737 cockpit enclosure, for example, would almost entirely fill the room. I was planning on still being able to use it as an office as well as a sim-room. I would have to work with what I had, I decided.
