Default Shark Pit, acemark

Hello all.
I would like to start a thread on my KA-50-Black Shark Pit.
This is my first Pit and I think that my expectations have been more than met with my new toy.
When I started checking home pit builds in this forum, I was indeed amazed at what was posible. This pit is a result of this forum and all the info it provides. Thanks everyone.

Start date; Dec. 28 2011
Estimate; 1-2 years. But at the time, I certinatly was't going to build an entire cock-pit.This atitude changed as the build progressed.
So about 2.4 years later were here. I think 6 more months, and it will be close.

A week ago started finishing off the right center panel. This was the last pannel to make. All panels are made but some parts still missing. I have to be carefull of that finished word.
So heres the pics.

This pic is the grid I made from plastic J bead to suport the led backlighting. The center run is Blue, the 2 outer runs are supper bright white leds. I mount them about 2" behind the panels.



The panel lit up but it was sunny at the time

Beatiful pit you have gotten there Sir. I like that you have hinged the left side and a special feature that the collective can be held in vertical position for easy access
Very nice work endeed.

Cheers
Hans
