Hi, does anyone know where can I find this? I'm beginning to build one and have some doubts about it, mostly in the width of it.

Dimension wise, I find that measurements are very difficult to get your hands on, but it DOES depend on the kit you are using, or if you intend to build by scratch. If your going for a kit, look over to Peter Cos at http://www.a320project.com, he offers some excellent kits. I dont think he's made a 777 kit yet, but he offers a 20% discount on the first one out the door. If you plan to scratch build, then get your ##### over to http://content.honeywell.com/das/ads/6x6B.htm those are the displays they use in the cockpit. You can then scale the rest of the flight deck to these dimensions. Get over to airliners.net as well, and look for the cockpit pictures, i GUARANTEE there are thousands of 777 cockpit shots, it shouldnt be difficult to scale the distance from say the ND to the EICAS (those are Airbus terms i know <G>) Then remember that the panels are symetrical, and hey presto! Another tip for doing the centre console (or what i did anyway) was to go to CSI and AGT, and look at their measurements for just one of the panels that makes up the centre console. The width then gives you the width of the entire set of panels from top to bottom. I'm not familiar with the 777, but when i did the airbus, i found that the width of the COM panel on the centre console gave me the width of the FMC, NAV radios, and others. How ive described it is perhaps a little difficult to follow, but on the AGT site (http://home.att.net/~sfinger/777.html) it has panels for sale and when clicked on, goes to a page with a picture (for reference if you want to scratch build) and the EXACT dimensions of the panel. Phew thats my 2 cents, hope it helps. any problems email me at Horgy@Hotmail.com, ill be happy to help
