    update to my 737 ng project.

    Hi all....

    Here's some pictures with the progress of my sim.

    The throttle is real and comes out of a 737/200, i also have the complete rear bulkhead with everything in it.
    Will start interfacing the throttle now. Any ideas, tips, etc most welcome.

    All panels, the aluminium stand, the cdu's and the landing gear lever come from Engravity (737cockpit.com)

    First an overview picture



    As you see the levers of a 200 are somewhat different from a NG

    Frontal shot:
    You can see that the stab trim override switches are different too..
    The 200 doesnt have TO/GA buttons either, but a Go Around button



    Another close up. Stil have to fold the carpet around the lower subpanels. I have some real vents that will be placed when the panels are cnc-ed.


    And another close up. You can see the different levers very well here. Thrust levers, speedbreak and trimweels will be motorised...as soon as i find out the best way to do it.



    Close up of the landing gear lever. Looks real doesnt it. I forgot to place the dust guard behind it. Will do that ASAP



    Same shot but gear down. Over ride trigger fits perfectly behind the guard.



    Another close up. No autothrottle disconnect buttons in the levers. Strange enough the levers and grips are wired. So i will place some pushbuttons myself.


    Still alot of work...but im getting there.
