Quote from: crazydunc on July 22, 2022, 02:32:35 PMI have changed from normal LED Strips to Chip on board (COB) LED Strips for AFDS and Background Floods in the 737. The Improvement is mental, hard to show in a photo, but it stood out massively when I turned them on today.

Yup, COB LEDs are a much better solution for MIP lighting.  I posted about it on my site last year after I discovered the same.  I understand they've improved even more now.

Here's where I bought mine from:

Making progress on the aft roll-away bulkhead with real CBs.  Mostly finish work left now.

Trying to find a folding first observer jump seat.  If anyone knows of one available please let me know otherwise I'll probably just make one.

Waiting on my linked FO rudder pedals from FSC.  Then  planning on building out a new base with real linked columns and control loading columns and rudder.  Exciting times ahead.


Interesting concept! 

Nice workmanship!

Meant to post this quite a while ago, but here is the unboxing video for the CFY Throttle

Hey Jason...   Congrats on the new TQ.  Looks super nice!

Hi Tony...  Great job on the "roll-away" CB Sections.  Adding in all the detail should be a lot of fun.
