Hi Guys,

I have the dimensions which I have put in a simple drawing of the Aft Pedestal of the 737. The information was taken from measurements that Jaime Pirnie {Allistah} put onto the Forum, {Thanks Jaime}, along with a scaled drawing that I found on the web. I would have posted the details on the Forum, but unfortunately I do not know how to do it. So if any one would like this information, please email me. Karl.bates@btopenworld.com

By the way Chris, I tried to email you this over, however it kept coming back saying mail error!

Thanks, Wink

Thanks Karl,

that's probably because I'm reliant on HOTMAIL. About time I set up a real pop account at VIRTUAL737.com - will do this today.

Be carfeful about "scale" drawings....
I have seen what alot of builders are using as a guide and it is not
accurate for size, not actual scale... This creates big issues when panels arrive.

thanks for the heads up Peter. BTW I've now set up a permanent SMTP server of my own so my MAIN email address is now:

chris (AT) virtual737 (DOT) com

Hotmail is still active but I'll phase it out.

Cheers
Chris

How do we go about getting the measurements of your panels, so we can be ready when they arrive ???

GREAT !!! thats what i thought, Thanks for the reply.....so where do we find, get, or purchase the measurements..so we can start with the very important planning process ??? I think its a good idea to plan ahead, as many have said here in the forums, and i think P Cos would agree.
This would be a great addition to the product line...and a HUGE help to the builders...time is money, and planing it out as much as possable would be a very wise way to go!
I know there are other companys out there making panels, and post the measurements on there website, but there products are not at all the quailty of FDS.

So back to what I said originally, I have a scaled drawing of the aft pedestal of the B737. Itís 1:1 scale. These match with the parts from FDS, as PC pointed out which are 1:1

What I cant find are the measurments for the 777 FDS panels ?where are they located at ?? are they free or do I need to purchase them ??
I understand that you have the B737 measurements.
But the way I understood the reply from PC....
"Be carfeful about "scale" drawings.... "
meant that it wouldnt work ??

Yes thatís correct, when you are looking at scaled drawings or plans, the first thing you need to find out is what scale they are, i.e. 1:20, 1:200, etc. However the drawings that are at a scale of 1:1 will be okÖ But remember you will need to double check that the information has come from a reliable source. I believe that there are several builders that have managed to get photographs of real aircraft, along with actual measurements of various parts of the flight deck; this can be a good guide to help you in the planning your build. You might want to email this guy, his 777 is made up of real parts, so he maybe able to give you some dimensions. Remember to check with FDS on the sizes that you get. http://www.777project.cjb.net/

All the Best,

Karl

Have finally managed to install Project Magenta on 3 new PCs, one each for the PFD / ND displays and one for the upper EICAS (will also power lower EICAS when PMsystems and the new PFD are released).

Now starting to build the frames for overhead, windows and pedestal. Wont be able to do much else until my next bundle of goodies arrives from Peter - can't wait!

Don't worry, it was a special configuration for a Scottish F/O. They see a different 'slant' on things! Very Happy

Actually the F/O had 'demo flight' enabled in the PFD.ini file and the Captains didn't.
