Hello everybody!

I am preparing to build a B747-400 sim, and I want it to be as close to the real thing as possible.

I need relevant information and advice from all of you experienced builders out there, before I start the project.

Can anybody tell me if it is possible to get/buy drawings with dimentions and measurements of the B747-400 cockpit.

Many thanks for any help.

Regards Very Happy

I can tell you that you will need about 2Mx2M in total floor space. There are no drawings or official measurements, however, if you check the websites to see which builders are doing 747's, some of them include dimensions - or you could ask them directly. It would be a big mistake to start building without having the individual panels to layout the exact sizes. You don't need everything at once though and should really begin with the Main Instrument panel. When you're ready, just ask us and we'll be glad to help.

Elance,

I think i have what you need for your 747-400. I got drawings of the cockpit dimensions. I myself am busy putting them in a 3D drwing in CAD. If you need the 2D's let me know.

Mail me at Flightdecksolutions@MarkHoning.demon.nl
