    Unhappy 737-800 MIP Question

    Hello, I am starting a flight simulator from scratch, and have the pedestal already made. I am very hesitant in cutting out the Main Instrument Panel dimensions. I have been looking all over the internet for the correct size I will need to cut out in order to be able to view the monitors. Can anybody give me insight or measurements of the cut outs for the Instrument Panel? I will need all of the measurements as I will try to cut them out this weekend.

    Hi, i think theres something in the downloads area, that might give you some help. Or at least there used to be.
    Downloads> Boeing 737> Main instrument panel.

    Failing that, Ian sissons website (ian@737ng) may have something

    Give me a few hours... I did the same. I'm knee deep in cleanup right now but I can pull something together for you later tonight (Mountain time).

    What format do you want? VCarve, Autocad, etc?

    Hi simulatorpilot.

    Try here http://www.markuspilot.com/

    I assume you will be using MDF boards for the carcass, frontage and glareshield.

    I used his measurements and am very happy with the results.

    I just uploaded my 2D DWG and 3D DXF of my old style FDS MIP. It's not showing up yet as I believe uploads have to be checked first. If you need them faster, shoot me a PM with your email and I'll mail them to you.
