    That darned red light!


    Can't afford to buy it? FINE THEN! I'll MAKE it. Scaled using a screenshot of the original prop and a know item that I have, (red switch). Turned on the lathe from polycarbonate rod, details melted in with soldering iron, collar is the lid off my wood glue bottle. Drilled out for a globe. I'll paint it with a red permanent marker.


    Original prop



    Let's go!

    That's what you can do with the right tools. Awesome job.

    They have spray on translucent red paint also.

    That point in your build when you turn to the dark side and just say, 'F it.....Ill clean up my space later.....too much fun now.'

    Totally cool build!

    Looking great! Amazing progress so what angles did you come up with for the panels? You are way ahead of me now! Will you have functioning joysticks?

    Thanks guys.

    I have left the wire and plug intact on the thruster control, so anything is possible later down the track. For now, I just want to get the thing together and looking good.

    I haven't measured the angles, I just squeezed it in and cut until it fit. I can tell you that both the main instrument panel and the lower panel are both on angles, not vertical nor flat.
