Who told me I was a bad influence !!!!

Superb...the CB walls are top notch and your roll down door is a killer!
I (will) have a simple curtain ( as in the good ol times when bullets were no issue!)

Updates

Post by Winstonc »

Couple of updates to the cockpit.

First I have finished building the two diagonal window rails, with the one on the Captains side having the light to illuminate the contact breaker panel. This now goes with the two grimes lights I built the go on the lower rear panels on each side. These will all be wired up to the dimmer on the aft overhead. Still a couple of lights to build to complete the illumination of the CB panel.

Second, I had a spare pc and 4k 55� monitor, so I decided to add a 5th screen and coumputer to my setup which now gives me complete coverage on the FO side. I chose the FO side as the rear window on that side is I see more of it in my peripheral vision from the CA side. It works perfectly having of course used a different zoom factor to account for the smaller screen (55� vs 70� on the front three).

I may add a 6th :)

Thanks Peter.

The rail is not 100% accurate especially where the rail goes into the CB panel ( I did not feel like cutting a big hole in the Panel, but it is near enough and I think the overal effect works.)

For the observent, yes I had the gear lever in the off position the ground. There was a neighborhood power failure on the previous flight and I forgot to reset. No excuse I know 😱.

Hi David,

Nice video! Amazing how some believe it's so easy to switch between sims and that we have a choice sometimes... Would be nice if it were true!.

Nice video!
