Title: B737: measures from oxygenmask etc.
Post by: MjTom on November 04, 2015, 02:06:27 PM
Hello,

I´m currently working on the sidewalls but something does go wrong.

(http://fs5.directupload.net/images/151104/temp/fjh6bhyp.jpg) (http://www.directupload.net/file/d/4161/fjh6bhyp_jpg.htm)

I´m not able to transfer measures from cockpit-pictures to my homecockpit.
Cupholder, oxygenmask etc. are incorrectly positioned.
Perhabs somebody will be so kindly, to have a look at my measures.
.....where is bug?

Hello Thomas,

One thing is the Oxygen Mask boxes, dimensions of the real ones is 147x114mm (top panel).
The other dimensions I do not know for certain.

HTH,
Marc

Hi Marc...

.....that´s a good first indication to clarify some of the inconsistencies!
I´ll going to test it immediately.

thanks

Hello Thomas,

I hope that you get it figured out  :)
In case you need other dimensions for the oxygen mask boxes, just let me know.

Best regards,
Marc

Hi, Andreas

That was the plan, I build the sidewalls. I was realy happy, to find this side.
Slowly, it comes light in the dark.
- the measures from cupholder must be bigger than 150mmx155mm, perhabs 185mm x 185mm.
- document pocket might be 160mm x 50mm.
- the post might be 80mm x 50mm

Now it looks more realistic, the hope is increasing.
I will show you the result after painting....so long, Thomas

That´s exactly one of my problems.
I have a (bad) picture from a B738 and when the measures of cupholder are 150mm x 150mm
the measures from the sidepanel are wrong.
Can you please check measure a and b?

Thomas,

ok, some measures from fagerjord-plans semms different.
170mm x 170mm makes sense and looks good.
my sidewalls must move ~6cm forward. Than, the rear sidewall looks also better.

Thomas,
Do you come to Lelystad this weekend for the FSWeekend?

.....no way this time.

edit: so it will look after modifikation:

Have somebody the measures from the document-pocket ?
I need it for better positioning the post.

so long, Thomas
