3D printed panel mocked up
3D printed panel mocked up
Hi all,

I have a few half decent pdf's jpegs and whatnots from t'internet, does anyone have really good instrument images?

I've mocked up my panel, yet to paint, but would be nice to find some really high definition instruments.

Cheers, Ell.

Good Job Elliot. You can get some really good instruments from Brian Hoddy.

El, I recently did the instruments for my 100 - ok, they are prototype specific but older sailplanes quite often will have had their instruments changed out at some some time, modified or updated so if you are not too fussy let me know.

They are high resolution vector graphics done in Illustrator and can be created to any size without loss of resolution - vector graphics are not resolution dependent.
They are ready for printing (and print out beautifully) preferably onto photo gloss paper.

I could send you a rough pdf to have a look at.

Thanks guys, Cliff - I've seen Brian's stuff, partly what inspired me to do my own, the 3D modelling is turning into another bl**dy hobby!!

Robbie, yes please, I'd be happy to share everything I've got too if anyone else is interested? I'm making cut files for decals as I go too, just done ASH26 in 4m scale for my latest SLS model...

Ain't the winter brilliant?

Ell :)
