Default Linden's A-10C cockpit build

I want to start this thread by saying THANK YOU to everyone here on the forum who share infomation, construction techniques, and designs for panels and cockpit.
Too many names to write but you know who you are, thanks for a great job!

What I have done now so far is AUX and Fuel panel.
The material that I have chosen to use is 2mm clear plexi for the backplate, 3mm opal-white
plexi for lightpanel, 5mm opal-white plexi painted with black color then laser engraved.
Still need to paint the backplate "edges"


Well its a start

CNCs and Laser engravers are great but they can't do squat with out a precise set of plans.

Looks good Linden!!
Glad to see that your cnc went good.
Only thing is that I think the bat handle on switches is a bit to low....
You use 5mm on top and that makes them low.....

Ahh. I see your not having the lightning in the panel itself, but behind the switch plate shinning through it? Where are you going to place your electronics / wiring to prevent shadows?

Yes i will have light that will be one lamp from behind the backplate.
As for the wiring i dont think that will be a problem, but i havent tested whit wiring, so
i dont know if there will be a problem.

If so i need to get a el sheet or just put some leds in the backplate.
