    B737NG in Scotland

    Hello.

    Delighted to be partaking in this fab hobby, and in IFSBI.
    Progress is slow due to my non-technical background, so having to learn a lot very quickly.
    Based on PM software, CPflight MCP/EFIS/s, 80% panels, touch screens to represent FMC's and EICAS/general screen between, OVHD and TQ.
    Trying to build in 2 x 19 LCD's either side, for side views, and 1 PJ for forward view onto a big, white-finished hardboard sheet for forward view.
    Not sure if this is going to work though.
    I've posted my first couple of pics.

    Best wishes for success to all,
    Bill

    Hey Bill. Pics look great! Your CDUs? Are they computers or just touch screen monitors? I think Kester is doing something like it!

    Hi Bob.

    Yes, CDU's are simply touchscreen monitors, representing PM CDU's.
    2 x 8inch for CDU's and central 10inch for EICAS and FS Commander.
    They're not like the real thing(wish!), but do the job.
    I keep taking panels and other bits on and off, so pics are erratic, just deps. on what I've pulled off again at the time!
    Despite best efforts at pre-planning, things have to be 'adjusted'.

    Regards,
    Bill

    That sir NEVER changes... And there are times that you find out despite all your planning, things do not work as you thought and bingo.. Redisigne!! I am on the 4th rebuild of my sim (last one due to a house move) and every one is better then the last.. I think the current build will be the base from now on I love it and I built it so it can come apart with out destroying everything... It is by far the best sim I have had and it is 200% better then I ever dreamed I would have!

    Gentlemen all,

    Many thanks, a little late, for the warm welcome. Indeed delighted I'm not the only builder in Scotland.
    I've gone off the boil a little, things have slowed down, so I'm recollecting my thoughts, an' tryin' to get in gear again, though I am approaching the wiring and interfacing with not a little trepidation ..

    Regards
    Bill S
