    Instrument face design

    Iíve just ordered up a servo card from Opencockpits to have go at making an aircraft instrument for the simulator. Iíve invested in Turbocad which Iím sure will do the job but itís a steep learning curve.
    Is there an alternative that anyone could recommend to simply design and draw an instrument face? or is there a set of templates available?

    Thanks

    Gauge editor, open the gauge in your flightsim that you want to make with editor. Scale it correctly, print to photo quality paper and presto. Nice gauge face. Works better on add-on AC as they usually have photo real gauges.
