    Cheap & easy annunciators

    Hi Guys,
    Today I made all of the annunciators for my overhead panel in 5 hours. There are 4 new pics in my second album... http://www.mycockpit.org/photopost/s...ry.php?cat=560

    They are just labels printed on printable clear A4 plastic sheet cut out and supaglued to the back of tinted perspex, (plexi-glass). The photo descriptions say a bit more but I made the whole lot with square foot of tinted plexi-glass and 2 A4 plastic sheets. They look good sitting on the overhead panel and I'm looking forward to attaching them permenantly. They are nothing like the high quality Engravity parts but I'm building my own panels based on the 737NG and not an exact replica. 100 annunciators cost less than ten bucks! The total cost of my nearly finished OH will be just under AUD$220. More pics soon.

    Nice work, as always Gwyn. You make it look simple but, we know, lot's of hard work behind that.....

    Look forward to seeing the finished product.
