    737NG Project

    Hey guys!

    Just an update from a swedish 737NG builder...

    Finally the mip is beggining to take shape and
    most of its indicators and switches are now working.
    Feels great to be back in the game again!

    I recently bought the mip-card and a projector so for the first time
    i can start to use the sim for real=)
    Its like many builders say in here...you have to combine building
    and flying or else you might lose interest.Well dont think
    my passion for flying would cool of but what the heck!
    Got to get that freekin thing flying already hehe.

    As for now i will finish wireing up rest of the mip,after that i will
    get some help of my friend networking my second pc to use
    for eicas and cdu.

    More to come...

    IMG_0126.jpgIMG_0127.jpgIMG_0130.jpgIMG_0132.jpgWas up people!

    Its time for me to make another update,during the week my ledlight strips
    from ebay arrived so ive been busy backlighting the mip.
    I didnt buy everything i need at once cause i wanted to see if
    it held up to my expectations,but...

    It did!i was very satisfied with the result of the leds so another
    order will be sent soon...thank you ebay!

    Also got my usb/vga adapter i ordered a few days ago so atlast
    i got my eicas screen installed also.The usb/vga adapter is an awesome divice
    so im planing to purchase another one,very good indeed.

    So here`s the result of the work ive done during the week.

    Have a nice weekend eveyone!

    Hi all!

    Recorded som clips with my cam and put it on youtube.Mind the bad quality
    and bad filming.
    Clips are taken on finals to Landvetter(ESGG runway.21) and Arlanda(ESSA runway.01L)

    ROCK! aviation fans!

    Looks nice. Maybe you should just put your camera on a tripod.

    overhead1.jpgoverhead3.jpgoverhead2.jpgHi guy's!

    It's been awhile since my last cockpit update but sometimes
    i just can't deicide witch way to go or what manufacturer
    to buy from.All companys(almost) seem to aim high when it
    comes to quality,but have to admit that price was one of the big
    issues in the end.

    Anyway,last week my overhead from Poldragonet arrived and can't be
    more happy with this.Really nice quality...thick subpanels with
    very smooth and detailed toppanels

    Here's some pictures showing the first set of switches mounted.

    Happy midsummer!/Lennart

    Re: 737NG Project

    Hehe thanks!Yeah this journey is going too take quite sometime but
    i will enjoy this for sure.Just one week from my summer vacation
    so it arrived just in time
    Another good thing is that im moving to a house so now i
    can outlive my dream and build a enclosed simulator.

    Anyway, i have followed your project and have to say it's coming along
    really nice,would be cool to see that puppy in real life sometime.
