Boeing 747sp

Postby shervin88 » Mon Apr 05, 2010 7:31 pm

Hi to all, i am an handyman, and i want to create a 747sp for flightgear, i am enough expert in blender, and i have started to make the model, but i need some help in nasal scripts for instruments, hydraulics, yasim etc.

after this model will be easy to create 747-100/200

The model making in blender is not so difficult for me.


Please reply :D

That's nice! If you post a screenshot of the current status, you might attract some more people.
Just tell us what you need (to know). As long as you try to do as much as possible (by learning things) yourself, there are a lot of skilled developers that would like to help you out on parts like a FDM.

We already have a -100 and a fairly good -200. Might be better to spend time on enhancing the existing ones than starting from scratch all over again...

There must be atleast something out there on the internet about the "old" instruments! The Boeing 747 wasn't using unique instruments (atleast not most of them), so you'll should be able to find a good deal of information on atleast the basic instruments.

Please note that we already have a fairly good 747-200 cockpit, which isn't that different at all (in reallife).

Collecting information is one of the most time consuming parts of the development of an aircraft. You'll have to dig into every outer corner of the internet, read articles, talk/e-mail to (old)pilots etc. Before you'll have a fully functional and historical/operational correct flightdeck, we will be months (if not years) further. So don't be suprised if things don't go that well for a couple of weeks.

Cheers,
Gijs

Thank you, it fits to my needs, i can improve the textures and the interrior cabin add more animation of 747-200 and take some useful components for 747 baby edition, thank you again.

I love opensource :D :D :D

The 747-100 cockpit is identical. There are several differences in body shape (tail angled up 1 deg, some 36 feet taken out of the fuselage length at several locations, etc.), but SP's and -100s were available simultaneously and shared engines and avionics, to the last detail.

I have a 747SP flight manual at home (because I work on one IRL -- tail number N747NA). Let me know specifically what you want, and I can provide some of it. Please don't expect me to scan all 1400 pages.

There is also a publicly accessible 747-100 flight deck at the Hiller Aircraft Museum in San Carlos, CA if you ever get near there (it's a few miles south of KSFO).

Image There's the cockpit (and a bit of the FE panel) for those who want to know what the 747SP's cockpit looks like. It was taken in NASA's SOFIA (N747NA)

This might help with 3D Cockpit modeling.

I love blender, it is ten times better than gmax and more easy to use :D
I find airliners.net a good site in order to pick good screen-shot of the interior of 747, thanks Quadunit404

If all goes good i want make a tutorial, this is my first aircraft for FlightGear

Wow that is looking great an I must say, you are working quite fast. I would recommend getting the exterior model done first and get it flying so you have the whole plane before you do the interior. There is a lot of coding and all. Very promising though.

Thanks.
My project is to make the interior first and test it in the 747-200 already done, i want to improve the quality of 747-200 and next time i make the exterior of 747sp.

The two aircrafts are similar in interrior, i noticed it from the pics i found on the net.

i am new to fg rules, then understand how works with an alredy done model help me to understand the basis of fg.

I will post other screenshoots :D :D

Thanks again.
