Thought I'd post here to be safe. I'm a sim enthusiast from way back and have been enjoying the hobby forever. After a while I finally got tired of not having a dedicated computer or a place to put my gear.
I started looking for a cockpit a few years ago and was not able to find anything I could afford. I built my own and some fellow simmers liked it and I sent them plans. Long story short it all evolved into me starting a company called The KwikPit Company, we sell desktop style cockpit kits and plans.
If you're looking for something simple and inexpensive take a look at http://www.kwikpit.com, let your simming buddies know to.
PS Hope this wasn't too brash, seemed like a great place to post.
