    Hi Matt and Trevor !

    Thanks for the kind welcome!

    As i promissed i have uploaded some new pics from my current construction status.
    The cdu bay is almost finished with installed sharp 10,4"lcd.
    The lcd`s for captain side and upper Eicas are installed.

    Currently i`m working on the display controll boards.
    I`m installing longer wires so i can controll all lcd`s from the pedestal.

    The CO side lcd will be installed sometime near Christmas

    Also at christmastime my MIP panels with all hardware from Jörg at Simparts.de will be finished to get installed.
    The throttle unit from simparts will be purchased and installed in march or may.

    Glareshield with Efis and MCP is currently in work and if all works out like it should be it will be finished at new year.

    If someone need some good DZUS replicas please visit simparts.de the next 1-4 month.
    I have a arrangement with simparts.de to sell my DZUS replicas.
    Await the first ones in shop some weeks before christmas.

    So thats all for now!
    Happy constructing and flying!

    regards George

    Hi Matt!

    Thanks for compliments

    The whole MIP construction and cdu bay is from 12mm MDF wood.
    The mip mainpanel is made out of aluminium.
    All the housings and holders for displays are made out of aluminium.

    All the woodwork i made by myself.
    The MIP mainpanel is from simparts.de.

    The colours are RAL 7011 for the gray colour and the white colour is a special mixture.
    The excact colour i can tell you tomorrow if you want.

    regards George
