    No fair, your going to make mine look rubbish. Not very good at metal work so going to make mine from mdf, as long as it does the job doesn't matter what it looks like. Do you have any pics of the panels you've made?? and/or what you made them out of.

    I was thinking of using a clear pespex, cutting it, spraying it, then engraving the text, so i can backlight using leds.

    Thanks Dave

    Dave, you asked for pictures.

    Check this out http://mycockpit.org/forums/showthread.php?t=2574 Brian was our first Featured Builder when we first started IFSBI in Nov 2005. You can see what he has done. Also as you search the site you will also find others who have made them as well. Check out Westozy in the Photo Gallery.

    Unfortunately once you check these out you will find yourself loosing many hours of sleep dreaming up what you can do with the CNC.

    You now have been "Warned" Flight sim building can be addictive.
