Got the materials for my curved projector screen frame today.  Took apart our old trampoline and got some 1 1/2 conduit from Menards.  Tomorrow I'll be assembling the frame and taking measurements so I can order the screen from Carl's Place DIY Screens.

Also got the temporary mounts up for the three projectors.  Just aquired my last darbee 1080GT last week for a heck of a deal.

Found and purchased a set of OEM chronometers, the OEM gear handle, and the FDAS panel for the future cockpit door.

Worked on wiring.

Hey Guys,

Glad to see you're getting things done during this time of the year, where everything pulls us away from building...like nice weather, vacations and such.

Even though things have been crazy for Karen and I; especially, with all the previous winter weather, now too much darn rain, we managed to get the projector screen stand made. Well, the local welding shop did it for us, using the specs from my previous homemade built stand. Got it home this past Friday.

Took just a few days. And, it's made to be taken a part into 3 sections. We just have to clean and paint it, then mount the screen.  :idiot:

Working on an accurate 3D printed version of an Airpath compass for the 737.  LCD back-screen to display the Prosim compass on.  Coming along nicely so far.  Gonna be almost spot-on when done.

Hey Tony,

Care to share your 3d print file and where did you buy the small lcd screen, as well as how are you interfacing it; vga, hdmi, usb display plug or what method?

Regarding my sim project, I ordered and received some sheet metal from a local company that makes metal siding for sheds and metal residential roofs.

Basically, they're flat 29 gauge sheets without profiles/ridges and they're 12'x42", plus it's all black. Thus, I plan to rivet this to the inside curve of the projector screen stand, then attach the actual white screen after that. This will prevent light from going through the screen and bouncing back towards it causing reflective ghosting effects. Also, I will make a top of sorts to keep the light inwards towards the screen.

Lastly, I plan to order more metal like this to use for covering the back section of the sim and the exterior of sub-floor box.... :idiot:

Some updates from The Beech House:

Added 6 more feet to the screen this weekend, making it a full 220-degrees viewing area now. I've yet to re-align the projectors though. That will come tonight. It's tedious work.

Side doors are still a work in progress. Co-pilot side is finished and has that cool 1979 retro look to it including some teak-wood trim..

Carenado released v1.2 of the Beech 1900D a few days ago with (Drumroll please!) Landing/taxi lights that actually illuminate the ground! No more taxiing around blindly at night.

Permanently installed the Stream server. No more tripping over wires.

Installed a new GoPro 7 Black camera for streaming. A bit more resolution than the old GoPro 5 and better low-light sensitivity.

Avidyne PFD: Added ADF capability (Yes I use it sometimes because it's fun!). Bumped around some colors after ripping the hex color codes from the operations manual. Also added the ability to run the PFD as a Master or Remote unit. I use the remote for streaming so I don't have to mess with it during flight.

Finished my radio stack by fitting the last switch panel to my collection. Will tidy up the USB cables for GoFlight modules and leobodnar card by utilizing a powered usb hub. Next will be finishing behind the glareshield.
