    If you'd like to see some of my progress here is the linky:

    Work on the MIP has begun. I scored a center instrument panel section from a regular seller on e-Bay earlier today, and my 727 landing gear panel arrived from the UK a few days ago.

    I had to replace all of the 387 bulbs in the down and locked indicators, as a surge must have gotten through to those bulbs. All of them were blown when I received the panel. Working great now, and I have the pin-out schematic worked out on the jack.

    @ Boeing Skunk Works: This is so good to look at. Makes me want to continue with my overhead and MIP. Keep the pictures coming.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Steve, FDS has nothing I can use for the 727 except the landing gear handle so I don't have anything from FDS, but I appreciate the offer. If you would take cash instead of a trade, what do you have? I need the far right panel from the MIP, and the panel to the left of the engine instrument panel.

    FDS has good products from what I read about and see, they just don't cater to my aircraft. I'm a member of their forum and post frequently under "Michal" in the General Forum. Not to much else for me there.

    On another note, the seller I bought the center instrument panel section from wrote me back encouraging me to get the engine instrument panel too. I told him I couldn't for a couple of weeks, but he said to go ahead and use the "Buy it Now" and send the payment in a couple of weeks.

    That was mightly nice of him. I've bought a lot from him in the past.

    Now I have the center section, the engine instrument panel, and the landing gear panel. All I need now is the far left panel and a narrow auxiliary panel to complete the instrument panel all the way over to the start of the FO's side.

    Those I can make using the three panels I have as a reference. No problems!

    Hi! I saw that on e-Bay awhile back. I'm the one who sent you the question about it. I'm Herr Walther at e-Bay.

    I had thought about buying it. I really did, but I'm afraid that if my measurements were the slightest bit off I'd have to rebuild the whole Sperry 150. I didn't really want to do that.

    If it would have had the back-plate, I might have bought it anyway for a future project.
