At the end of January, It was decided that the way I would build my B767 MIP stand was to manufacture sheet metal parts thru laser cutting, bending and drilling the pieces. After many drawings and measurements I went ahead with laser cutting the pieces. What I like about this process is the cutting surface is clean of burrs and is very precise. In the pictures I have the manufactured piece that was laser cut next to the Boeing real piece in the MIP frame. I compared each piece to the real ones to see how close the measurements were and I'm very pleased with the 1>1 scale that was achieved. Next powder coating all the pieces before assembly.

Assuming the real shell is yours, what's the point of replicating these parts??

Too cold to work out there. We just got another dump of snow. I need a stand to mount all my panels to it so I can work inside where its toasty warm. Once panels are mounted I can figure out how to connect everything to a power source and computer.

I worked on assembling one of the rudder boxes and it came out not too bad.

Almost there....now onto the MCP tray and top of frame so I can place the glare shield on. The frame allows me to work on interfacing and connecting everything inside first before it goes into the real cockpit. It will be a SSTD B767

Yes but not in the shell. That's another project in its self. The SST is for inside use only where I can experiment and work on getting real gauges/annunciators working.

I had another throttle quadrant and joined it to my homemade stand. I need to start on getting the monitors up for the MIP. I can't decide on what to do next. Information overload.
