Hey Ming, on all those videos did anyone add reinforcement to the wings or is it all stock? What was most of the AUW?

All is stock, a 6mm pre-molded spar inside the wing plus a 8mm spar as wing join.

You mean private licence? Nope, I have an ATPL and almost 5000 hours on the 737-700 and -800, and it gets more every week. I have also given simulator training for 8 years for type rating courses. So go ahead with your questions.

Just for the fun of it, let me tell you some things about the 737NG cockpit.

The first thing you see when you enter a NG cockpit is the 6 big screens. Therefore the cockpit looks very modern. While in fact it's mainly ancient crap.
The screens really are nice. They are big, sharp, readability in bright light is good, they have a lot of well presented information. They are just good. The overhead panel is basically still the same as the first 737's, which were designed in the sixties. I hear you think: why? When Boeing was designing the NG they got a lot of inputs from the different operators. One of the biggest clients (I think it was SouthWest) urged Boeing to make de NG cockpit compatible with the PG cockpit, so pilots could fly both types on 1 type rating. Which Boeing (unfortunately) did. The systems behind the panels are all new, state of the art digital boxes. But the interface (the switches and gauges) is 90% the same as the first 737's out there. According to the Boeing procedures we are switching a lot of unnecessary switches. The systems switch automatically, but for the sake of communality we are sticking to the same procedures as the -300/-400. The plane has a huge number of sensors on just about every part, EICAS (like on the B757) could easily have been implemented.
On the 757, which is quite a bit older than the 737NG, Boeing did a good job on the overhead panel. They made pushbuttons instead of switches, which have a big advantage: you can see if everything is all right in the blink of an eye. On the 737 half of the switches are up during normal operation, half of them are down. That makes it very hard to see if everything is configured normally. But on the 737 the screens are much better than on the 757.

My apologies if I seem frustrated, I'm not. The 737NG is a very good and safe airplane and I already survived 10 years in it. But in my opinion it could have been even much better. It's a shame that Boeing gave us a modern airliner with prehistoric interface.

I have asked this question before, but no one has replied yet...

Can somebody please post pictures or information on the steering of the nose wheel? How is it done? Where do you mount the steering servo?

Any info would be appreciated!

Looking at my unassembled 737 it has a servo mount location just forward of the nose gear. Looks like a pull-pull would be ideal for this airplane. That is what I am planning.
