    B737 MIP to scale?

    I downloaded the AutoCad drawing of the B737 MIP from the Downloads page, and I would like to know if it's a 1:1 scale of the real thing? I ask because I drew the holes for the stand by instruments at 80mm and they seem too big or a bit out of proportion to the rest of the panel. Thanks for any help.

    If it isn't a 1:1 scale drawing, then were can I get an AutoCad version of it at 1:1 scale?
    Regards,

    The real instrument hole is 3-5/16" across.

    Oh ok, thanks Michael. But I still need to make them 80mm in diameter since I will be using the Flight Illusion gauges.

    What is the exact 1:1 width of the real B737NG MIP? From edge to edge. I want to enter that in CAD and see how the rest of the measurements fall in place. Thanks!

    It should be the same as in any older narrow body Boeing; 60", or five feet.
