First, I wish you all a Happy New Year !

The last few weeks I have been very diligent.

But now, I need some Measures to finish the sidewalls.

I would be glad if you had some information.

1. the cutout for the lighting from the circuit breaker:

2. the center of axis from tiller to make the drilling:

Thank you, Thomas

Hello Thomas,

I have the dimension for the total tiller height (I do not have distance A in your picture).
The center of the tiller axle is 57.5 cm from the bare cockpit floor.
This was measured from an actual stripped 737-600NG flight deck (see attached picture which is CPT side)

I hope this helps,
Best Regards,

Hallo Marc, thank you for answer!

57,5cm viewed from insinde looks perhaps a little bit too deep.
Is it possible, to get the measures from inside (the yellow arrows)?
My dimensions from sidewall are approximately +/-1% by the originals.
Thus, I expect a good result from measures from inside.

I envy you for your real cockpits ^^.
only chance for me to get: go to EDFH and dismantle a parket B738 from Rynair....Tony Ryan has enough of them.
"sorry"  for the inconvenience, I´ll try as real as possible.

so long, Thomas


I want to show you one of my modes of operating if I have no or no real measures.
I only need a good photo with ruler...that's all the help I need, nothing spectacular.

one photo from my HC and one from original

moved and adjusted

one above the other

In this way I am 100% on original.
so, a small photo spared massive work.
thanks to all, who make it possible.

so long, Thomas


If you can wait until next week, I'll take measurements from a real NG.


Hello Thomas,

57,5cm is the correct measurement from the bare floor to the center of the tiller axle.
Measured from real 737-600NG, alas, not mine!
I do not know how this translates to your setup, that is something you will have to compare and adjust as necessary.

HTH, Marc


~57cm is definitly the correct measure.

I now have all what I need to finish the sidewalls.

thanks a lot to all !

the next phase of construction: fill in.
I will keep you up to date.

so long, Thomas
