Well I still cant do much on the layout
, cant walk properly, cant stand for long, and deffo cant lean over the layout doing things, so it has had to be mainly kitchen table and not too messy
I havent been able to find a control panel box to suit my req's so today out came the good old Plastikard
, here is what I ended up with,,, the white lines are microstrip to strengthen it and the timber is glued in there as its easier to mount tagstrip and choco blok connectors to, Need to get some piano hinge now ( dont really want to buy a full metre though
Then onto the front panel, I only had Black Plasticard so instead of marking out the track with pinstripe in the normal way I used 3mm masking tape for the track layout, then primed and sprayed over it all in silver. Once dry I removed the masking and coated it all in clear laquer. I am Well Pleased with the result,, the down side is it would be pretty hard to change the track layout now.
Heres the photos, Dont you think it really does look like its a metal panel though??
hopefully if the leg ( or more importantly...my WIFE) lets me I'll solder some wire & the multi plug up tomorrow.
