You're doing a great job, and the compass looks good too! Are you using a stepper or servo in there?
Well done!  :clap:

Just a question before I can proceed with my left and right consoles:

Is anyone here using the Panels made by Hispapanels and could provide me some simple measurements?
Have to figure out the places to be cut in the console for the panels and haven't them here yet (my dentist gets some (  :D -joke: he gets some more) money and so there's no budget for parts of the pit at the moment).

Especially the left console, forward part where the Audio panels are located.

The few Hispapanels I have are close to real dimensions.

Download a cockpit layout from http://www.xflight.de and print it at 102%.  That will give you a good reference.

If you want to check your print size, print the Avionics Power panel and compare to the drawing on xflight.de

Year one of my pit slowly comes to an end and it's time for the final update.
I managed to build the Mapbox out of PS-plate, not many words just let's the pictures tell the story:





Now I am waiting for grey Velcro and the Mapbox-Sticker (Hello Kukki  :D) and then it is finished and can be mounted to the pit.

And that's it for 2017 and let's see what progress will be made in 2018.

I wish you Merry Christmas Holidays, a Happy New Year 2018 and all the best for you and your familys.   :yihaw:

Oh, and for myself I hope that I can spend more time in my pit... it's a hard fight getting into it for the last weeks:
