That -200 cockpit looks too good to be the Ready For Pushback model... what is it?! Or it might be, not sure! Looks great!

Great stuff Joe! :)

Cracking set of shots Joe. :cool::cool::cool:
Tom, I think it might be the Just Flight 747-200/300 package. :)

looks like CLS 742 to me :)

Thanks guys...It is the Just Flight 747 200/300. Very good addon for $30 US dollars!

Is it realistic? In other words, does it have stuff like the INS/full panels modelled? I wouldn't mind learning how to fly it :)

Here you go Tom. :)
I got it for £15 the other Saturday. :) It comes with a INS PDF manual.

I just had a look on airliners.net and it appears that the 747-200's have the INS system, and some/most of the -300's have an FMC, but still the olde worlde cockpit. Just Flight say that they have a limited function FMC, which is a real shame.
I wish there were something like the RFP 747 but slightly updated, as that plane is getting rather old... Wouldn't mind doing some cargo flights with a -200, learning how to use the INS system. I spend alot of time on my FMC's taking things for granted like SIDs and STARs, but I quite fancy actually having to properly use approach plates and needing to KNOW how to fly them using instruments and stopwatches rather than letting the computer do it...
Does anyone know which carriers still use the -200/300?
Sorry if this is a thread hijack Joe, doesn't mean to be!! ;)

Atlas Air still have active 747-200s according to this site.
