Instrument Panel Construction


In my last project I used picture framing card for the instrument panel. I found that although it was easy to cut and shape it was very flexible and required lots of supports to strengthen it.
With this project I'm going to try Cardboard.

Over the Christmas period I utilised an A3 printer to produce the Panel Plan:

I used these plans as a stencil to transfer the image onto the cardboard:

The cardboard is much harder than the previous card and the easiest way to cut it out is with a jigsaw.

Next step, the gauge cut outs.
