DESCRIPTION

The Window Liners are the window frames (window frames) that one can find at the different raamframes.

They're ready to buy from some company that cockpit stuff to sell. Generally they are very pricey and they should also just fit with the window frame that one uses.

It is also the intention of my "Window Liners" themselves.

The Window Liners are divided into :

  • Middle strut windshield window liner;
  • Side window armrest/Chart holder (Capt and F/O);
  • AFT Lower window liners (Capt and F/O);
  • AFT Upper/Middle window liners (Capt and F/O);
  • FWD Upper/Front window liners (Capt and F/O);
  • Imitation glass (plexi or pvc).

The DV window armrest/chart holder is to be found at the bottom of the front side windows. This ‘DV window armrest/chart holder, a Chart Holder Clip’ with associated plate attached to vliegkaartjes at the bottom.

On the front is also the (dummy) lever attached to the front side door to open.

Explanation of the different opbouwonderdelen of the ‘Window Armrest/Chart holder is to be found on the following page : http://www.flightdeck737.be/hardware/platform/zijpanelen/inopbouwonderdelen-new/

 

PROCESS WITH FINISH

The ‘Arm Rest’ is not made with the styrofoam/polyesterprocedé but of MDF panels. This is mainly because this component is periodically touched during a flight (vliegkaartjes end) and therefore this must still have the necessary firmness.

The dimensions that I have used, in terms of length as long as the bottom of the aluminium frame of the side window. Furthermore, I have based on photos and a few dimensions that are taken from a real B737.

Personally, I find my copy succeeded, in hindsight should the thick side is one inch thinner. The angled block on top of it is a little too thick failed ...

About the length, I have 2 MDF-panels of 18 mm thickness and cut-to-size, and later on together. A disadvantage of MDF is the weight.

The diagonally ascending portion is from a piece of wood cut to size (a little too thick cut). This section is in turn on top of the MDF panels glued together. Afterwards, everything is still attached with 3 wood screws.

Then, all the corners where necessary around of samples.

The surface area around the ‘armrest’ are then edited with shipping to most european countries to all the holes and crevices. Afterwards everything is completely sanded with very fine sandpaper (grain 240-320). Maybe it is filler to make several times is necessary until all of the holes or openings are gone. You can do the best after the first a primer, then you can see much better in the remaining cracks and holes.

 

The ‘armrest’ have I then in the side window mounted on the bottom side of the aluminum frame. And this under an angle of + – to match the board to the frame (115 degrees).
The assembly is carried out with a few bolts through the bottom of the windowframe and the block of the ‘armrest’.
I did this on the bottom of the ‘armrest’ moerklauwen used in which first a hole drill that is slightly larger than the thickness of the bolt, and then the moerklauw in the boorgaatje printed and in the wood, beaten with a hammer. The bolt comes through the metal frame and is in the moerklauw rotated.

 

The block of the ‘armrest’ is a very weight but is later supported by the underlying bar.

 

As the finish gets the ‘Armrest’ Boeing grey colour and on the front is this feature of the raamhandvat with mounting plate. On the thick part there is a metal plate with klipbord. And as a finish than even the ‘decals’ on the side.
