Hi all, I've started building a B777TQ for 'Kennair' and I'll post the progress pics here...

The generic TQ base was the start of this TQ build and I've just completed the lever bodies.
Ken has opted for black levers and a grey B777 TQ, (we don't like the brown!!!)

Cheers guys,

Here is the flap lever mechanism completed. I can offer this piece as an individual item, it would suit any Boeing type quad! I haven't bent the end of the lever over yet, I'll wait until the housing is closer to being finished to determine the exact height. Anyhow.....back to the 'mill'!!!

And so ends day six on Ken's TQ. The reversers and knobs are fitted and the levers are ready for buttons, switches and wiring. Ken I'm spewing, this one's too good to hand over, you can't have it!!!



No fun tomorrow in the shed, I have to cut down some of the jungle in the front yard - blah!

WOW!   That looks fantastic Gwyn.    I bet Ken cant sit still!

You're so right Scott, this has got me salivating but its really putting the pressure on as I have to build the rest of the sim to a standard that will do it justice!!

All I can say is I'll do my best, and of course have fun in the process :)

Very nice Gwyn.

Thanks for taking the time to post these pictures. Very helpful guide.

Looking forward to receiving my throttle parts from you.  :)

I just had a play with these throttles this evening and they are sweeeeeeeet!!!  Can't wait to see them in their housing complete with flap and speedbrake etc.  Pictures can tell a thousand words but they can't convey the feeling of them in your hands.  It's too bad most of you won't get a chance to wrap your palms around this baby.  Quality to say the least.  I think it's going to take some doing to pry it from Gwyn's grip though :)

What about a little tiny nothing picture????


Jack

Kennair

Umm would you believe Jack I didn't take my camera with me  :o   However it looks pretty much like the pic on Gwyn's website as he hasn't made the box for it yet.  It was more about getting my grubby little hands on it and copping a feel, if you know what I mean?  ;D  Here is what it looks like currently however.

  Eager to see it "skinned" so to speak.
I played so many times with the TQ, (making whooosh noises) that I can understand the urge.
Glad you do the Triple7 in grey, will look awsome and for sure make Boeing rethink its choices ...

I hope so. I can't believe they picked that baby schei├če brown color for the new generation of transports.

Agree Jack and Mike,

The 787 grey is what the 777 should have been so I'm looking forward to doing it.

As for the "whoosh" noises I think Gwyn will have something to say about that, he had to keep smacking my hands as I kept moving the levers beyond their intended travel as I risked damaging the switch wiring  :(  He's done a great job recreating the TOGA switches too.  Beautifully shaped and knurled with action to make any flight attendant melt.  He's got the material for the skin so that'll be done soon (sometime) depending on all these other orders that keep coming in.

Progressive pix to follow.

All the birds I flew, beside Cessnas, were either greyish or plain greenish or black, or a distressed mix of the latter..my brain links got used to associate those colors with fun and excitment. This is probably the explanation. lol

Gray is more neutral and business-like to me.

However, Boeing also like to use a baby-puke green on all of their Minuteman II/III missile system components. I never did get used to looking at that color and I was surrounded by it any time I was in a launch facility. Ugly green.

Gwyn,
What would be the $$ damage in Canadian if I were to look at you doing a similar thing for 340 mor would i be better off getting the whole thing made like you did for Erhardt?By the way beautiful work as always Gwyn.

Hi Tim and cheers,
The A340TQ is AUD$4,300 (CAD$4044) as seen here - http://www.aerosimsolutions.com.au/a340tq.html It has working trim, CLB, FLX & TOGA switches, reversers, A/T disconnect buttons etc. The levers alone take at least 1/3 of a TQ build time (about 30 hours) so you probably wouldn't want me to make them for you!!! I thought you already had an A340TQ??? I can make the generic TQ base 4 engine with geared pots, that's only AUD$420.00 + postage and you can add your own levers to it. I just shipped a TQ base to Toronto and it cost AUD$38.00 Erhards TQ levers were the last things I made prior to the CNC arriving so I don't have CNC files for them unfortunately. Otherwise I would be willing to share them with you!

Hi all,
I'm back on Ken's throttle after making a few of the generic product range. I have mounted the generic throttle unit on a base plate and fitted the sides. The flapgate took a few hours to make as this one is machined on both sides from a single billet, I'm really pleased with the look of it. Last night I made the front and back covers but it got too dark for pictures - more soon.






Every piece has been made on the CNC mill apart from the turned pieces. I really want to complete this one without handmade parts, it's getting there Ken!!!

Cheers Gwyn
