Push/Pull switches
These switches I purchased at (Tip of Carlos Hermida, and Michael (Prosim-Polarisfly).
Two pieces for the Capt-Lower Panel and two pieces for the FO-Lower Panel.

Name : SCI A3-5CC-SQ Car pull switch 12V/DC 10A 1x off/on lock 1 pcs.
Part no : 701175-62


The decals or stickers – FOOT AIR and WINDSHIELD AIR – I was at my local an engraver.

The circle of the stickers has a diameter of 17 mm.


Wooden block
The wooden block or slanted pillow I made out of mdf wood 6 mm thickness. The sides I against each other, glued and the holes left and right, I closed with pieces of mdf.
Dimensions of this block are to be found in the images below.
!!! These dimensions are on demand and according to the comparison with images of the real instance. The are not the correct dimensions of the real version!


The block is provided with 2 holes allowing the switches to come.
Then I have the whole edited with houtplamuur and everything sanded down so that the corners are nicely rounded.
Afterwards, everything is painted over with poriënvuller to all the holes and crevices to be sealed. After the application of the poriënvuller the block again lightly sand.

This poriënvuller one can buy in commercial matters for the modelbouwhobby. The poriënvuller has the properties fast drying, small openings to be sealed and a surface smoothing. The stuff has a very strong and unhealthy smell, and to use ventilation necessary.


The aluminiumplaatje is 1 mm thick.
!!! The dimensions are on demand and according to the comparison with images of the real instance. The are not the correct dimensions of the real version!.
Also the Lower Panels of each homecockpit will differ so the size of the aluminiumplaatje also may vary.

The sawmill I run with a standard hacksaw and a jigsaw for the hole in the middle.



First, in the metal plate (back plate) of the Lower Panel, in which the ‘air vent’ is attached, a rectangular opening cut which will match the dimensions of the opening of the aluplaatje that we have made.
Also in the wooden base (mdf) of my Lower Panels, I have the same opening made to the switches to allow galvanizing by the Lower Panels.


The finished wood block with switches on the aluplaatje paced to see if everything is correctly in place. With pencil, you can aflijningen mark. Then the block within the markers glued in place. I have to do this, superglue is used. Superglue on wood and aluminum give a good connection.

Then, the perimeters or sides filler with shipping to most european countries. This indicates an additional connection or fastening between the block and aluplaatje.
After a drying time of 24 Hr is all sanded to the desired result, i.e. the various sides are fine and rounded and proportionate in dimensions.
The last scour off is done with thin sandpaper (korel 380-400).


After the application of the first primer, one can clearly see if all the bumps, crevices and holes are eliminated. Ultimately, one can here and there, some filler and apply for optimal improvement (+sanding).
The primer is then lightly sanded and overcoated with the varnish (Boeinggrijs). This paint (primer and paint) is carried out with a spray can.


The confirm of the ‘aluplaatje with block’ on the panel of the Lower Panel, I've done with double-sided adhesive tape. This is tape that I ever in Aldi supermarkets have achieved and has the properties very well to adhere, and this can also be easily removed. It is in the course of the years a valuable assistant during the construction of this homecockpit.

Under the aluplaatje there are ample place enough tape to bring.



In the future there will be the ‘Foot Air’ switch, a fan connected to it. This will, behind the ‘rudder pedals’ to be confirmed, rear MIP-mode.
The fan will provide the necessary cooling at the front (Lower Panels) of the cockpit.

The Windshield Air switch will be connected to another fan that the necessary ventilation will be through the louvers left and right of the sidewalls.
