    Aerosim Solutions - New concentric dual potentiomers

    Hi all,
    One of my customers is building a B747 sim and he intends to make his own MCP and EFIS units. He requires some dual concentric potentiometers and also some concentric potentiometer/rotary switch combinations as found on the heading bug/bank angle combination. I'll post progress pics of the custom units here as they evolve!

    I have also made silicon molds to cast all types of B747 panel knobs in clear resin as shown on these pics. Casting in clear allows the knobs to be backlit after painting.
    More soon!

    Cheers, Gwyn

    Gwyn,
    That is too cool! I think I need some, but I don't know why!

    In memory of Flt Lt Tony Hill who, on 5 December 1941, at the request of Doctor R V Jones, successfully photographed a small "Würzburg radar" at Bruneval on the French coast. This from a height of only 200 ft, at high speed, under fire and from a camera mounted obliquely behind the cockpit.
