Map-panels in place
Today I received a package from Phil with the outstanding map-light panels. Installed them right away and I think it looks great. Thank you very much for helping me with this panels Phil
And best of all. My angles on the sidewall is correct when compared to the map-light panel.
Have not tested the backlighting yet. But cant have it all in one day
Here a shot with the Routech tiller-wheel where it should be
And next special item would hopefully be the oxygen mask panel

Looking good Ivar! Wish I had your interior
I see you have finished the curved piece under the glare wings...
how did you make them? any close-up pics?????

You can make this interior. I put the drawing in the tutorial section of the forum. The tricky shape under the glare is made of one piece plywood, then glued in place what here in Norway is called styrofoam. Then shaped it as good as I could. Then used acrylic filler and black paint. I am not happy with the result. It is actually very ugly when you look close at it. Very tricky part to build. But I got my hole under the glare covered and that is a good thing
Could only find one picture. I added more styrofoam after this picture was taken. Important to use acrylic filler on the styrofoam before painting. Because the paint melts the styrofoam
