Brilliant!!!

You'll learn that most of here on GJ are barely lucky enough to find a used set of worn cabinets. Now, when there's a serious deal at Lowes, HD, or HF, word spreads like wildfire.

I have GOT to start stalking my local airport...

That is definitely worth of a "YOU SUCK" award

I would not "camo" the paint on that, I'd paint it like a major airline but just put your name on it.

On the other hand, what does one have to pay to get a fuselage of a plane? I'm thinking that there is a new market for the scrap business now.

Hello everyone, thanks for the replys
got a little time to write,

I started out needing a tool shed for the tractor, and spotted a united roof at work. need to get it set on real support, instead of blocks.

Then I needed a "git away place" and used a tail section with the thick locking door. even kept the throne and sink, just added a pipe from the holding tank to the septic line. replace the ballast with house voltage ballast for the T-12 lghts, and pergo on the floor. moved in the mini fridge, tv, stero. etc.

3 years ago brought home the DC-10. time to get it done, since work is slow, wish now I had left the inside and insulation in.

Just a little tuff, gettin around corners, till we adapted a front landing gear and a semi trailer rear axle to turn the corners like a ladder truck.....

I'll have to remember to take a pic of the shop one of my neighbors has in Idaho. He's got the nose of a DC-3 sticking out of the wall at one end.

25 ton of gravel base, should keep it "grounded", I know there was a reason for puttin this project on hold pattern.

also got the electric service started and formed the side doors ( for good "cross wind")

Are you going to configure it in 2 or 3 class seating?

That is cool........

It would be even cooler if you could 'obtain' some 1st class seats and set them in.....
