Jeeezzz thats the cleanest overhead panel i have ever seen!
So nice with the custom stuff aswell!

kurt-olsson

Package recieved!

This really cheered me up after my PCB failure!

Wow 5/5 and it adds really immersive feeling!
This holder looks awesome!

Thanks very much John!

Anti Ice Panel back online, new more sofisticated PCB, still have to solder power connector but then its 100% complete way better than version 1.

By the way, if anyone has the correct distance the map chartholder should have from the edge of the glareshield, let me know. Looks like 5-6cm if looking at pictures.

Hey Peter,

I am glad you finally got it and you're happy with it. I was happy too make it for you.  :idiot:

Speaking of which, I would be happy to make this item for anyone else, I got one ready to go and will print a few more this coming week. If you're interested PM me...

Thanks again John, and to all others, the quality is extremely nice and if you screw it in place it does not even flex (like some other vendors).

New plan for backlight. I will not have dimming func in each panel, instead i will use a hardware dimmer that controls the overhead panel.

Every step counts...

Light test switch, 3 positions.

If anyone has an attend push button laying around, let me know.


kurt-olsson

One packed unit!

Will start removing the components so there will be nice space for the custom pcb in progress!


kurt-olsson

All parts out.

Keeping the wires makes the interfacing so easy with all the grounds connected to eachother and only 2-4 24V input.

Two sides here, "keep everything as it is" and "cut and minimalize". I know which side i am on.
I think the panel got 1kg lighter without all the boards/resistors and fuses. Hehe

Adding final studs for the back frame

You may want to consider putting in circuit breaker panel frames for use later when you acquire a set. It would be a different shape than what you have now and would allow a clean upgrade in the future.

Unfortunatly i dont think i have the space for it. Even if i can fit ig in the cockpit i think the unit is to wide so it will "stick out" in the back.

That pieace will be the last i get so it will be a problem when the sim is 99% complete... ...in 2047... :)

kurt-olsson

More wood work.
Upper right side window frame added.
Its gona be a pain getting in/out the cockpit without the J-rails. :(

Maybe i should have waited with the rest of the frame... hm...

kurt-olsson

Does anyone know if the 737-800 Brake preassure gauge on the MIP is 2" size?

I am thinking of getting this item, but unsure if its the right size...

The smaller one is extremely difficult to find
I used a 2" and it is not the end of the world. ::)

kurt-olsson

I would too Jack if i had a way to make the hole larger for it. Its allready cut as 1.5".

I used this  cheap device
