    My phantasy Airbus

    Hi,

    last year you guys infected me with the simpit virus.
    the least I can do is showing what that did to me

    After 6 months of wood, glueing, sanding etc I went in this weekend with the displays,
    the half way ready throttle and my first panel.

    I love the 32" LCD Monitors, I just sold 2 to member 'flymo' in Kent a few months a go, I used 2 monitors next to each other and got a nearly a 60" wide visual, hence 2 large for my cessna.

    How did you build the windows frames?

    When you have a look at this photo:


    - I made a closed outer shell from 18mm construction wood (floorplates)
    - and used a lot screws and PUR glue
    - then I cutted out the window
    - screwed 40x40 mm. wood inside
    - the straight mdf 4 mm. pieces
    - the roundings are made of 2 layers of 2mm "bend" mdf
    - now as last after sanding it is possible to draw the inner MDF 8mm. plate with a pencil.
