    Thumbs up FDS 737NG Interior Liners (Pic)

    Hi all,

    So completely by surprise, my phone rang yesterday morning while I was at work, with a delivery from FDS! I knew it must be the long awaited 737NG interior liners!

    After a full evening of installing them into the FDS shell (much simpler than one might think, certainly easier than I expected), the result was stunning! This is one fine set of hardware, and finishes up the "look" of the cockpit immensely.

    A couple of pieces were missing out of the box (center window post), but in line with the great service I've always experienced from FDS, a box containing replacements for the missing items is already enroute to me.

    Here's an image of the cockpit with the liners installed:



    I've already mounted an $11 set of computer speakers from WalMart behind the speaker grills (plenty of room there), and set up a third instance of PMSounds to run all of the aural callouts through them. The effect is outstanding. Now just need a couple of map lights, the center window post once it arrives, polycarbonate windows (also coming from FDS), and of course, a tiller, to complete the "shelled" part of the flight deck!

    Kudos to FDS for yet another ingenious solution to solving the cockpit building puzzle!

    Looks good, But very square looking. No curves like the real thing. Are the window clip boards really that size and shape?

    Re: FDS 737NG Interior Liners (Pic)

    I have seen these liners on the FDS web page. I like their shell/liner setup.

    After looking at their website, I have a number of questions.

    1. How much does the full set of liners actually cost?

    2. Is it possible to buy individual pieces (like eyebrow windows)?

    (this information is obviously too special to display on their web page)

    3. Am I worthy of knowing this information or owning any FDS kit.

    Thanks.

    looks like the VSD (Vertical Situation Display)





    The VSD, now certified on NG's, gives a graphical picture of the aircraft's vertical flight path. The aim to is reduce the number of CFIT accidents; profile related incidents, particularly on non-precision approaches and earlier recognition of unstabilised approaches.

    The VSD works with the Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) to display a vertical profile of the aircrafts predicted flight path (shown between the blue dashes) on the lower section of the ND. It is selected on with the DATA button on the EFIS control panel.

    VSD can be retrofitted into any NG but it requires software changes to the displays and FMC and also some additional hardware displays.

    Its Part of PM also, but i dont know as to how realistic it is modeled in PM.
