Font height measurements -B737 Cockpit panels
« on: September 03, 2017, 10:16:01 PM »
Hi builders,

Does anyone have the font height measurement, in mm, for the text in the overhead, mip and pedestal (NAV, ADF, etc..) ?
There seem to be like 3 different heights

I think it differs between panel to panel - actually the same panel may contain more than one font size!

On my OEM overhead there are 3 sizes.
The main large size is 5mm
The main smaller size is 4mm
These are obvious on pictures.
The smallest font is on the generator drive panel, The text that says: "DRIVE CAN BE RECONNECTED ON GROUND ONLY" is 3mm.
I only have the overhead, so I can't confirm anything on the rest of the cockpit.

Yes, I know :) That's why I said, "There seem to be like 3 different heights".

Thanks Stijn. I can start with those measurements and engrave some samples.
