I can't help you with dimensions or technical diagrams or stuff like that. But since you included layout, and said you've had no luck, did you try a Google "Images" search? I know that images of the panel are not as useful as detailed layout info; but hey, better than nothing. Through a Google "Images" search, I got some panel images that way; to whit, http://agrosz.com/md11/gallery/cockpit1large.jpg http://agrosz.com/md11/gallery/cockpit2large.jpg http://agrosz.com/md11/gallery/cockpit3large.jpg http://agrosz.com/md11/gallery/cockpit4large.jpg Also, going here: http://airliners.net/search/ and doing a search on "McDonnell Douglass MD-11" as the Aircraft Type, and "Flight Decks (Cockpits)" as the Category, got me 127 different MD-11 cockpit photos, including close-ups of various parts of the hardware. Here's an (unfortunately fairly small) diagram of the captain's panel: http://www.si-properties.com/sat98/images/news_16-10-98_cockpit.jpg Here are some other photos that maybe useful: tttp://www.thaiops.com/images/tcas1.jpg http://www.thaiops.com/images/tcas2.jpg http://www.tsb.gc.ca/en/media/photo_database/A98H0003/md_11/md11_5.asp http://www.lindauer-fly.ch/ck_swiss_md11.htm These people, for $25, seem to sell a poster that reproduces the cockpit instrumentation layout in detail: http://www.avsoft.net/md%2011%20stuff.htm I hope some of this is helpful. -c -- Chris Metzler [EMAIL PROTECTED] (remove "snip-me." to email) "As a child I understood how to give; I have forgotten this grace since I have become civilized." - Chief Luther Standing Bear
