New Man! :)
Wow, what an awesome place for information.
will be spending many hours on here i'm certain, just thought id say hi and apologize in advance for the amount of newbie questions I will be bombarding you all with.
I'm Chris, always been an avid flight simmer since fs98 and used to be part of an old freeware design group back in the day. then real life got a hold of me so mortgages and bills became important, now the children are older and the bills are more manageable.......I got the bug again.
so in the pipeline for me is an Avro Rj cockpit build....(when I say pipeline, I mean i've bought the pipe, Planned on paper what will be required, and am ready to commit my basic skills to the task, obviously my skills and time commitments are estimating this on an 18-24 month project as im planning to build my own components as much as i can. my childish eagerness reckons ill have it done by the weekend!!! )
im looking for vast amounts of information on the Avro RJ. mainly specs and dimensions of the panels. (They say a picture tells a thousand words....well Im still looking for the one that tells me the Avionics sub panel plate is 7 inches wide by 9inches long !!)
I have a cabfile of pictures of the RJ cockpit but was wondering if any of you guys know where I could find info like this from

They have an Avro RJX at Manchester airport viewing park, which is able to be viewed internally. Perhaps for a donation and some kind words you could gain cockpit access for photos and dimensions.
Best of luck with your project.Geremy Britton

There's a forum user here named Mach7. He's doing the 146-100, which is more or less the same size only with analogue instruments (the cooler kind of instruments). Either way, he's using a combination of real parts and homemade parts, andhe could definitely help you with the dimensions. You could also do what I did to find the dimensions for my build. I wrote about it in a previous thread, so I'll just add the quote in here. It was for a user building a Q400, but it all still applies, and the website in the link probably has AvroRJ stuff as well:
