Exciting times!
Package arrived!
Will report later tonight, but from what i can see we have an ace vendor with the best quality i have ever seen...

kurt-olsson

New floor to the cockpit room!

kurt-olsson

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.




kurt-olsson

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...

kurt-olsson

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)

That is a tight room.. Do you know how you are going to cool it?

kurt-olsson

Open the door in the front! :)

No seriously i will think of some ventilation, but that will be a later problem.

kurt-olsson

Hit the lights... ...porn alert!

The yokes are almost complete hardware wise, installed the cogs for roll axis. Once my alps linear slide pot arrives i am done and the floor will come on hopefully. 😊

kurt-olsson

Floor mounting begins. The last pot will be added through the maintenance hatches.

No need for rudder pedals yet!

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

I sould like to remove them to get a more NG look, but unfortunatly they are installed with rivets. Dont know if it is possible to remove...

navymustang

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.

kurt-olsson

The thing is also that both seats are FO seats, will prob try to convert it once other issues is done. but not right now. =)

kurt-olsson

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.
