I have uploaded a new version of my overhead file to day.
Some changes are minor others significant. The changes from the last version are:
- The RAL7011-colour is adjusted
On my print the colour was a bit reddish compared to my other panels. But I am unsure if this is better. The result of course also depends on your printers calibration.
- Gauges are resized
Gauges are made smaller. Now most are 5 cm wide like on the B737.
- Extra set of annunciators deleted.
You needed to print the extra annunciators on transparent foil and the panel on white. That is not possible with a single file. I will upload the extra annunciators as a separate file.
- MIP Lights panel are removed
I made these panels because I needed them for my own cockpit. But as they not are a part of the overhead panel I have deleted them. Might upload them separately.
- Holes for screws deleted
On earlier version small black circles indicated where you needed to put screws. But in case you didn’t use them you would end up with black circles on the panel.
- Additional panel in 2dn row changed
The top panel in 2nd row is unused space in the B737. So I made a panel for turning on/off computer (extension of the on/off button on the cabinet). I never got around using this feature, so I guess neither will you, as you need to hardwire your computer to the overhead panel. New panel gives the option of controlling pushback.
The new file is resized compared to older version.
New measurement is: Width: 93.6 cm – Height 84.7 cm.
With this version 1.5 I think I will let this project collect dust on the shelf for a while now. Of course un less you spot an error or have a request.
Nowever somewhere down 2014 I might work on a version 1.6. For that I – at this point – am thinking about two things: (1) make the white panels. (2) On the 737 some panels are extra layers (Like the “ALT GEAR HORN” in 4th row). I might add those extra layers so that the overhead will have more contour.
The new version is already uploaded and you can download it from the overhead-page in the top-menu.
