    Overhead measurments......

    Hi All /Roberto

    I am just about to commence the build of my overhead panels using FDS overhead panels. As I can see from pictures of this area the left and right sides of this group of panels appear to be angled slightly. In order to achieve the correct angle the distance from each outside edge should be measured so please can I have .......


    A) The measurement from the overhead left panels outside edge to the outside edge of the right panel
    B) The width of one of the panels (to establish the correct ratio with my panels)

    and

    C) The thickness of the vinyl boarder that boarders these panels on the left,right and rear of the overhead

    This would be much appreciated
    Thank you

    HI Guys,

    Once Again I screwed up, sorry not flying till september But I will get you those measurements I promise... I have to say taht the angle on the overhead it something around 5 degrees basically is really small is just a little angle given so that the F/O can seethe left side and captain right side of the Overhead panel! But IŽll get you the measurements!!

    Regards,

    Roberto

    Hi Roberto
    I have just found a very good pictureon airliners .net which gives a very good shot of this angle... I have opted for 7.5 degrees and gone with that... thank you for offering though
    Cheers
