    Hello! First Post! Newbie Builder asks for help

    Hello!

    Flight Simulation is my hobby since a few years ago. Now I made up myself to begin a home brew construction of a Boeing 737NG cockpit. I want to begin by doing the cockpit shell to put in my garage. I know that somewhere in this forums there is what I'm looking for as an example with photos and measures of the shell. I searched but did not find it. Could some of you indicate a link?

    Tank you very much
    Henrique

    Henrique,

    I don't think you will find cad drawings of the shell dimensions.

    In our download section there is a pdf file that has all the measurements that are available.

    Best regards,

    Trev

    Phil posted a 747 shell CAD drawing a while back, and he was working on a 737. Might want to ask him how he's doing on progress. Here's the thread:

    this link is the correct file, I just downloaded it and unzipped it.

    It is a .pdf file.
