Thanks.

Yeah, i cant belive it. After 2-3 years i have all the panels, seats and items i need.
Now the cockpit frame construction will begin.

Once it is complete i will take panel by panel and interface. This is my approach so i can fly a little sometimes with the parts that has been completed.

Base platform under construction.

Will mount wheel so i can get access when maintaining.
Key focus will be on easy access and being able to easily remove sections.

Platform with wheel will measure 42 cm of height. Still lots of height left.
Will prob go for lcd tvs...

Base construction 99% done.
8 casters each rated 100kg.

Each beam has cc 60 cm.

Will add a layer of 1,5cm playwood and also on the sides. (As suggested)

I wonder how common the document boxes at the back of the seats are on 737s?

IF you can gain access to the head of the rivet, in most cases just drilling it out will allow you to remove them.

Don't remove them or if you do, save the document boxes.  Inevitably, one day, you'll need more storage...
I don't see how having them affects immersion.

Testing options on how to mount the mcp.
I would like to have a platform right under the mcp that it can rest on that stretches from side to side. This solution made the mcp very flimsy and not sterdy at all.
