It has been quite some time since my last post, but I have been busy. Most of the time went by due a very resisting new laptop, but eventually Windows has lost its battle and everything is now working as it should. I have also spend quite some time on both lighting panels. I have made holes in them for the panels and wire transits.
These holes are filled with panels for switches and the like. These panels are made from 3mm polystyrene on which grey painted self sticking vinyl is glued. These vinyl pieces are cut with the cutting plotter. Most of the time you just have to wait until the paint is dry.
The componentes are mounted in these panels. The only component still missing is the GPWS annunciator. This will be made in the same time that the legends for the Engine Fire panel are made. I already cut the polystyrene panel for the Engine Fire panel and painted the sides. The sticker for this panel will be made while the other stickers are cut. Before the lighting panels are put in place I will have to make the backlighting and solder “some” wires.
