Hi again -

I knew I'd forgotten something- AJ, the JSB engine model seems to say it's a turbine engine, with thrust produced directly, which presumably means that it exempts itself from the vagiaries of a propeller! Anyhoo, a battle for another day.

Ampere, Gijs- not sure what you mean by the cylindrical frame instruments, however, the CRTs do still need doing, not sure whether that's more a modelling or programming exercise, however. Other things you might like to look at, Gijs:
- Trq guages, with movable bugs and tapes
- A new altimeter, the one installed currently is borrowed from the 747
- Radio/Nav/ADF boxes- there are a total of 6 of these very similar in the flight deck. I'll check there's good photos available by tomorrow eve.
- The flight mode panel (FMP), which occupies most of the glareshield. I don't think there's a good photo of this, I'll arrange one tomorrow.
- A few other things!

Finally, as an when you make a model, it would be a great help to keep the textures with dimensions powers of two, eg 256x512, 128x1024 etc.

Once again, good to have you back on board.

Cheerio for now

Would you (or someone else) please make/find drawings of the instruments/thing i have to made? For example: http://www.737ng.co.uk/737NG_Flightdeck_Dimensions.jpg .
My English is not good enough (and i'm not technical enough) that I can understand technical English texts... BUt i would love to help!

Tried to post this yesterday, but it doesn't seem to have stuck-

Anyway, Gijs, the technical drawings that you refer to are not easy for me to produce, I'm not all that artistic! Most of the instrument models are fairly straightforward, so I suggest that you make a model from the photo and measurements data already provided. I can then install it, then re-scale it if necessary if it doesn't look quite right.

More pics:

Both radio boxes and flight mode panel are 9.5cm high.

Hope this helps.

I hope not :roll:

No Georg, not dead!

Slow progress at the moment, as I'm quite busy, but certainly not dead...

Have a fun weekend!

Hi Charlie,

No Georg, not dead!


this is really good news :D as the project started very promising.

Slow progress at the moment, as I'm quite busy,


There are a lot of things more important in life than our common hobby (and sparetime passion for some of us). It is not important how fast you can work but that you are still interested.

Have a fun weekend!

I wish the same to you.
I am on duty this weekend, but if your duty takes place at the right altitude and locations one could call it fun, who would know better than you:

Hi Charlie,

I've not been working on this since the last time, but I'll start again if you still need me :). Just tell me wich instruments (or other 3D shapes of the plane) you need. You can see my model (in SketchUp) at this link: http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/ ... 6e3e1506c1. The download is around 5 mb, is that to big?

Hi Gijs

I'm working on the EFIS textures at the moment- so the models for that would be helpful, as would the TAT, RMI (both display and switches) and DME models.

They still look good!

Thanks in advance
