    A320 Overhead Re-draw

    Hello,

    Has any a320 builder re-drawn the overhead panel to accommodate the ebay LED switches instead of using the 19mm korry style split switches.

    Just think it's a good idea and a cheap way of realising an A320 overhead without breaking the bank.

    I can get hold of the airbus switches but they have to be hand made at 6 each, when you need 80+, then that's a lot of cash.

    So just curious to hear from any other builders that have engraved the OH using the 16.1mm squared led switches, sounds a very good idea to me.

    Aj.

    Hi Alex

    I have got all overhead panels ready for original korry switches. I can redesign and engrave them for any other switches as well.
    Another option is self-build switches. I have done it using laser and black perspex. It works lot, lot less then 6 punds per switch.

    Hi Marcin,

    Was just an idea, and was wondering if anyone had done this before!

    By all means, from the pictures of your OH that you showed me are outstanding, and it's great to know that you make Korry's too!
