Thanks Derek.

Didn’t know they made such thing’s until looking around on the internet. They are not cheap, but probably no more than other after market parts.Cool

It took a lot of fiddling to get it to fit, but well worth it.

Just a quick update, parts sanded down, primed and the painted with base colour. Solved where all the lighting will be, which will be shown soon. Next, gloss varnish and decals placed.

More soon

Thank you for looking in Clay.Cool

Just a little update. I have now added all the decals onto the cockpit panels. This was done over a three-day period and was not easy. All the lights had to match the hole in the etched brass and if it moved once it moved a dozen times, so only placed on a couple at a time to dry before proceeding with anymore. Once these were placed, I varnished it with satin varnish, left to dry before placing all the greeblies on. The whole thing was then dry brushed with a delicate silver, you can hardly see it, but gave the whole piece that metallic feel and highlighted certain areas.

The last picture shows a couple of bulbs placed on the underside to show and give some idea to the lighting effect.

Next, I will be colouring some of the lights with red, blue, and green on the inside. The lighting will be micro strip lighting with a very bright finish, some flashing smd’s as well as a few fiber optics before attaching the visual screen.

Still a lot of work to do.Cool

More soon.

Mark

Hi Clay

I haven’t wired the screen in just yet, the picture shown is just the light from LED’s coming through. I will show on the next update how it will be done, but the extra lighting inside and screen will be on a separate circuit. Adding these to the supplied circuit board might effect it or at worse blow it.

I’m looking forward to it all in place myself.

BTW, did you manage to persuade your lovely wife to get one?

Thanks
Mark
