    Hi Mickey,

    Love these videos. I know it’s been a while since you fitted the window frame, but can you remember how much you reduced the edge of the glareshield by to allow the frame clearance?

    • Mickey says:

      I didn’t shorten the glareshield because the width is correct but I extended the window frame by approximately 10cm. You can see the final length in the sketchup file of the window frame.

        The measurement I am referring to is 1:46 – 2.05 of this video you trimmed the back edge of the glareshield. Can you remember how much material you removed?

        • Mickey says:

          Now I know which trimming you mean. No I don’t know it exactly. It was a triangular stripe. Approximately 2 cm at the front corner. I think you don’t need to be too exact because the glare shield will be covered with leather and the window frame will get a foam cover too. So there will be enough material to hide transition.

            Great thanks Mickey.

            Much appreciated and once again, love your build and videos.

    Hi Mickey great work! My question is how much did you reduce the angle by for the side windows? Thanks

    As an enthusiast at the beginning of building my own 737 cockpit, these videos are some of the best I have seen on the internet. Really descriptive and informational, keep up the good work. What I love most about building a cockpit is that it involves craftsmanship, electronics and a passion for flying, the quality of your builds so far is something I am aiming to match.

    Are you planning to complete the cockpit structure first before starting on any of the electronics?

      Thanks for your comment.
      Yes the plan is to do most of the cockpit structure first and then starting with the panels. To make these I’m planning to build a CNC-Router. But this is a far future. Maybe, if the channel keeps on growing, I can find a producer as a sponser for the panels.
