To get a better imagination of the whole cockpit dimensions my next step was to build the main instrument panel. This thing is huge but easy to build. I even discovered a simple trick which helped me to assamble the construction just by myself. All parts were cut from 12 mm MDF. I didn't make any cutouts for instruments or monitors yet. I'm looking forward to attach a full scale print-out of the MIP first to make the planning easier.
Hi Mickey. What can I open the MIP Sketchup 2017 with?
Of course Sketchup. I think they switched to a web based version now. So you can just go to their website start the application and open the files with it. Or download an older version like the 2017 as I did.
Can you give the exact measures of the bottum of the MIP?
There are all measurements in the pictures and the sketchup file. A depth of 580mm and because I used 12mm MDF the width is 1520 + (2 x 12) = 1544mm.
Thanks for the quick reply. I think it’s smaller. The maximum with is 580 mm. The bottum should be smaller (580mm minus 80 mm minus ??).
But maybe isn’t the width not important. I wil make the bottum 1520 (length) x 490 (width) mm. Your Sketch files are wonderful, useful and give a good sight. Best regards, Sipke
Good evening Mike, where can I find the print out of the MIP panels that you used…Thanks
I don’t remember where my came from. But you can find some good ones here Plans.
Hello Mike, the link seems to be unavailable.
Thank you. I’ve updated the link.
Hi Mike, could you share the plans again? the link isn’t workink.
