Title: 737 Circuit Breaker panel lights
Post by: Winstonc on June 14, 2018, 02:04:53 PM
I will be adding CB panel lights to my cockpit and I am looking for close up pictures of the 4 lights (1 FO side in the roof panel, 1 on each side in the side panel recess and one on the Captain side on the diagonal window rail).

I need detail pictures as I intend to draw them up in CAD and 3D Print / laser cut as appropriate.

If anyone can help, I would be most grateful.

Thanks

David

I believe the two side panel lights are standard Grimes model MS25027-1 lights. This is in the classic, not sure if they changed that for the NG.

You forgot one. There are 5 CB panel lights.

- FO ceiling panel
- FO side panel/below window - grimes p/n 15-0121-2
- FO on floor behind the pilot seat.
- CPT on sliding (DV) window rail
- CPT side panel/below window - grimes p/n 16-0255-1

p/n are from my classic parts, they are also different revision lights, but i dont see a difference.

will try to post some pictures tomorrow.

Slightly off topic - the Sismo overhead circuit breaker panel rheostat actually turns on or off (with brightness) the light which is located right above the knob. I know that is not a circuit breaker light. So what actual knob in the aircraft controls that light?

The light in the FWD overhead frame is the pedestal flood light

Hi David

Just FYI I did not try to emulate the real lighting, instead I used 2 Wemacs

High load 24v  bulbs were replaced by 12v led equivalents which emit no heat

Looking awesome David. Good thing I'm not a hand model, or I'd have to charge you!  ;D
