On this page I will try to represent (by means of pictures) the building and the progress of the cockpit.
You can find more pictures in the relevant gallery's.

1-9-2012 Monitors assembled and tested.
30-9-2012. MIP functioning without lower Eicas and without FMC.
1-9-2013 FMC and Lower Eicas build in the CDU bay.
31-5-2014. Finished Building the Firepanel
1-7-2014. Started building my own TQ.
26-1-2016 Electronic for the TQ
5-2-2016 Finaly ready, building the TQ
29-2-2016 Installing and programming finished.
09-09-2015: After being a long time ill and spending a lot of time on building the TQ, I started again with building the Overhead.
On the picture the Overhead without wires and without the gauges.
07-05-2016: The electronics for the Overhead is installed.
In the middle at the bottom there is the CPU-board, above 2 input expansion cards (green) and an output expansion card (red). The yellow board is the servocard where all the gauges should be connected. The cards with the printscrewterminals on the side, are the connection cards. These are connected with ribbon cable on the relevant in-and output slots, after which the wiring on the screwterminals is mounted. All the cards are mounted on the rear side of the backlight Panel.

09-09-2016 Apply the control electronoca and connect it to the various panels.
Current state of being. Only the After Forward is missing and the support for FWD and AFT. The FWD is therefore temporarily on the workbench.
Also, the various dimmers for the floodlights should still be applied.
