    Progress of My 737-500

    Hello all...
    So it's been quite a while since I announced my Project so its time I showed some photo's Only computer Drawings but it's a start, and I will try and upload some drawings once they are completed. So without further adieu,
    Update#1.jpg
    (Not particularly sure if it worked, as I have been having troubles regarding Photo's) First 2 pics show the progress of the Altimeter, I will be hoping to make them out of Acrylic and Aluminum, the last pic shows the very early stages of the MIP and Overhead designing.

    Thanks for reading
    Henri

    Re: Progress of My 737-500

    Its been long since I updated. Las time I spoke, I was in the UK now i'm in Australia! As of late, the cockpit has been slowed down, but is slowly beginning to start once again.
    A new PC which is more than enough for FSX, eventually P3D. Lately there has been enormous work on the MIP. Housings for the airspeed indicator, RMI, ADI, HSI, Standby panel, Engine panel are all underway. To get an idea I thought I would do what most aircraft companies do and build a mock up of the cockpit before going into the final result. Better to resolve all issues now than then.... Anyhow, I'll share some of the pics of the mock up MIP below;

    IMAG0183.jpgIMAG0180.jpgIMAG0182.jpg
    Apologies for the bad quality (Taken from 20yr old phone!)
    All is looking good so just finding a place to get them cut out of acrylic, then the installment of gauges... The remainder of the aircraft such as OVHD and pedestal can use NG panels, but some will need modification.

    Thanks for looking
    Regards, Henri

    Re: Progress of My 737-500

    What are the major differences between what you're doing and the later CL cockpits with the engine info on the two awkwardly-sized displays? Apart from the displays themselves, I mean. And how easy/hard would it be to adapt your computer drawings into the later variant?
