Can anybody recommend a good place where they sell a NG Pedestal? I've looked around (and call me blind) but I haven't yet found a full panel, only sections.

Are there any components missing in the pedestal from Cockpitsonic such as radios, etc? Also is this the same one besides not assembled? http://www.cockpitsonicusa.com/oxid.php/sid/7b4b47d1a47afa99e2bee0ab59c22a15/cl/details/anid/deb446744f3d7f7a9.57501582/cnid/e7b443007fd508460.28411692

Also with the FDS like the Cockpit Sonic I can't tell if things are missing like the SELCAL and stuff. Thanks.

I'm planning to build a 737NG Pedestal out of MDF. Which thickness of MDF is preferred (1/2" or 3/4")? I want to make it to 1:1 dementions, and to be sturdy, but at this point I also need to be able to move it around, so weight is a consideration.

I want to eventually build the entire console (MIP, etc.), and would prefer to do so in "modules" I could move around the house/garage, if necessary.

Hello headshrink,

considering the fact that you are planning to move around the house with the sim, I 'd suggest to close the bottom with a panel. That way it will more solid and it will be much easier to keep it in good shape while moving around. If you do so the thickness won't matter.

That is a good idea, thanks. I that case I'll be making it as thin as I can reasonably do so.

I would think the commercial versions are made from Aluminum (my 727 one is, not sure about the vendor units). May be more pricey, may be heavier, but will be more sturdy. You could do a combination aluminum L channel frame and then covered with 1/4" wood. I think there might be rough plans in the download area, or check out mikesflightdeck.com

1/4" MDF is way enough.
I did mine as a box, with 4 wood bars glued with regular carpenter's glue.
Totally rigid.
The pedestal panels are screwed on an aluminum frame which sits on top of the box with hinges at the front.
Easy for maintenance as the whole thing opens up like a lid if needed.

Excuse the crude drawing.

That's lookin' good Jack.
You're using a real 737-400 IRIS panel but isn't it supposed to be mounted in the aft overhead or am I mistaken ?

In the case of headshrink, it would be a good idea to ad a bottom panel to make it real solid, just because he has to move around the house with it for some reason.

That is pretty awesome Jack. That is very similar to what I had in mind.

You wouldn't by chance have a webpage dedicated to your sim build, would you?

Great Pictures Jack. Are the MIP Panel and Stand from Engravity?

Thanks Jack for share these pictures with us.

One more question for you .... !!!

The fire handles are custom made, ( i mean the red plates) or you bought them from a specific supplier?

I'm not sure, if this function is working with PM's s/w, so i don't think that i need the handles to working as real, but i need them to complete the pedestal's panels

thanks

Eddie

This is a delco carousel INS and there used to be 3 of them, checking each other on the pedestal (747/Concorde)

No , sorry

Nope, Flightdecksolutions.
Stand is home made, check my posts here.

Custom made, they work with their own electrical circuit logic, (for test purpose only when doing the check list)
