    HispaPanels assembly help!

    Hello All,
    I purchased enough panels to cover the Captain's side and middle section of the MIP (737) from Hispapanels.

    The order came quickly and I also opted for all of the components. So I get a box in the mail with great looking panel parts and a bunch of panel backing type stuff, many with multiple layers of plastic etc (+ one bag of electronic components).

    Does anyone have a tutorial with how to put this stuff together? I'm not too worried about the electronics part yet, I just have no clue about how to assemble these things. For example, the 6 pack annunciators, there are little square clear plastic pieces and little square annunciator fronts.. I assume I put the electronics on the clear plastic parts and glue the annunciator fronts on the switches.. but I'm not sure.

    Another example, I have lots of other MIP parts that have weird shaped clear plastic backings that aren't really the same shape as one of the front panels.. so I have no idea what they belong to.

    Yikes, what have I got myself into here!

    I have so many questions... like the landing gear panel looks like it would need to be backlit almost right to the edge, so how do you attach it securely to the panel (I made my mip panels in 3 sections out of MDF). I'm assuming I would have to cut a hole in the mdf where I want the backlighting to show through (or will the light spread somewhat?

    Anyone used hispapanels for their MIP? (HELP!!)

    Thanks!
    Craig.

    Re: HispaPanels assembly help!

    I got the fire panel from Hispapanels and it was pretty much the same story for me. I used the clear perspex to mount the rotary's and fed the wiring for the leds and switches thru what appeared to be square cut outs. I haven't a clue if i assembled it all right but it works and backlights well. Just wait till you get the fire handles. They come in about 30 bits of clear perspex

    Re: HispaPanels assembly help!

    Hi steve, I ordered the fire panel and electronics together, what came was the panel itself a clear perspex backing panel, all the annunciators, leds,3 rotary switches, normal switches and the fire handles. From what i could work out the handles were made up of 5 seperate peices of clear perspex about 2 cm wide by 5 cm long, with the peice that goes on top engraved. I dont know if i assembled them correctly as i say but i basically glued them together in the order i thought correct as they are pre-drilled for the shaft of the rotary and the leds. As for them being red the answer is no, clear perspex all the way thruogh. There is space between a couple of the sections to insert thin card etc ( like a name badge ) So i inserted red card.

    i'll try and take a picture shortly.

    Brilliant Steve, Thanks for that- i've ordered the kit so looking forward to assembling it. I was thinking of painting the lower part of the handles in black and the top edges in red so i'll post some pics if it all works!
