Clock completion

PMs

Just seen the replies post the clock completion, thanks again for the support guys, much appreciated.
Don, did Authur C Clarke really say that?
Vermin, that's a big clock, lol
Jim, I'm happy to share my stuff, no worries. I'll ping you a mail. Let's work it. As for my location, I'm in Madrid for the next 3 years, the move from the uk went well.

Ps- loving Madrid

Next build, the instrument panel

Regards

Al Z -

Clark actually wrote, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," which I paraphrased because your work seems to fit the description so well. To someone like me, your work - although it may be the result of talent, patience, knowledge, and skill - is truly magic.

Clark wrote that phrase as his "Third Law" in a footnote to an essay, "Hazards of Prophecy: The Failure of Imagination," in Profiles of the Future: An Inquiry into the Limits of the Possible, New York: Harper & Row, 1962, revised 1973 and published as a Popular Library paperback.

Instrument Panel Construction

PMs

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.

Below - First Panel:



Panel layout:



Next step, the gauge cut outs.

Enjoy

Panel cont

PMs

Thanks guys.

Ive started work on the main part of the panel, the centre section.
I drew out the locations of the various gauges first:



Then cut them out and sanded it smooth:



The cardboard is very strong yet easy to cut out and sand/shape.

Enjoy

Bf109

cbg

For a minute there I almost believed you, ha. How simple that would have been. Talking about similarities. The magnito selector lever is the same in both aircraft and that's about it(the engine is also the same but an Italian licience built copy).

An interesting item in the cockpit of these aircraft is the fuel gauge. It's not what you would expect, in fact, here's a little challenge for you cbg, and to anyone else who is interested. Find the fuel gauge for these aircraft.

Enjoy
