    More help with 737 measurements please.

    I am having a little difficulty determining the height of the MIP panel. The measurements I have found seem to differ from each other somewhat. The well known line drawing of the 737 cockpit shell seems to show the bottom of the MIP (bottom of the pfd display frames) at 58 cm. Another well known drawing depicts the interior of the cockpit. It shows this hieght to be 62 cm. I'm not sure which drawing is correct. It's a farily small difference, but I would like to get it right, since everything else will be built around the MIP.

    Many thanks for the help.

    Most of the drawings you will find are in MM. Boeing do not build aircraft in MM, they build them in inches! If you are struggling to decide what it should be, very often a quick conversion will help you. They often use whole numbers or simple fractions, e.g. 2", 5.75", 0.375" etc.

    Korrys are a great example - 1" x 0.5"

    Anyway, it works for me!
