    New products coming soon

    Hi all,
    I've made good progress learning the CAD skills neccessary to produce panels with my CNC machine. My current commission is a B737 MIP and I got on a tangent and ended up making this FMC faceplate! I have a large order of opal acrylic sheeting due this week to commence work on the B737 backlight MIP panels. I will be offering them in sets soon!

    Ya make me green with envy Gwyn.
    Nice work. What buttons are you going to use for that?
    Is that the colour of the plastic or is it painted?
    Cheers

    Can't wait to see this panel. Looking at the photo it sure looks pretty spectacular.

    Re: New products coming soon

    Cheers Dave! This is just the raw unpainted PVC. I will use the same DXF file to plot the holes for pcb surface mount switches, then make the black buttons and superglue them to the switches, that should work. I don't know how to interface it that's when I call for help! Cheers Wes - I'm stoked with it, it's turned out great. Change of plans for Saturday morning - I'm entertaining Captain John Turnbull from Virgin Blue, he's here for an overnighter. When I take him back to YPPH I'm hoping to get some more detail pics of the NG cockpit. I'll quizz him about the SPD REF knobs aswel while he's here. It's a shame my sim isn't going, he loves it and teaches me heaps about the NG.

    Re: New products coming soon

    I had a busy morning at the CNC machine with my lovely lady helping out today, we finished cutting out two sets of B737 MIP Sub panels. One set is for Wes and one set is to upgrade my own sim, I'm really pleased with the results and the panels should look great when painted and engraved.

    Re: New products coming soon

    I am so spewing, I am still waiting for my small bits to arrive and have to wait till the end of the month so i can get to Cairns to buy some plastic. I cant even play with the 3mm MDF i have.

    Gwyn what do you recommend as far as the best plastic to use for the panels?

    I am not commenting on your great work this time... hahahaha (cos I am jealous)

    Re: New products coming soon

    Cheers guys, keep those kind comments coming, it really brings out the Leo in me!!!

    Hi Dave, I am using 4.5mm "Opal acrylic" for backlighting panels, available from http://www.superline.com.au/ Future questions only answered if you spell my name right lol, I had to edit your post again, I don't know any Gywns!!!

    G'day Michael, yeah it's been a while! How's the A320 TQ going? Did you see my A340 unit? There will be even bigger tears when that one gets taken away, I love it. I'm about to start a B777 TQ for Ken. I can do an A320 MIP not a problem, my new machines open up many possibilities however, I have just received commissions to fill at least the next 6 months so I will let you know when time becomes available. Are you still in Perth? I'm up in Ballajura now, sold the Thornlie place and I've bought a place for the sim with a pool!

    Cheers Gwyn
