Thanks! Made from .050" aluminum, primed, painted white JetFlex, then brown JetFlex, and finally sent up to Aircraft Engravers http://www.engravers.net. They engrave through the top layer of paint into the middle of the paint layer below. Not cheap but the work they do is really top notch.

Default Thanks for the photos

I've made quite a few molds and kind of had an idea of how you made your plug after I saw your previous posts. I won't embarrass myself by telling you how I would have done the rounded face and switch cut outs after seeing your simple solution with the PVC and metal inserts. Beautiful mold.

Really appreciate you taking the time to post the photos.

Visit us in FL when you finish!!

Wow, tell us about those dual throttle quadrants - I think that is a first! How do you handle that mechanically?

Default cheers !

thanks Brent, I'm happy with the final outcome although it took a lot of moving things around before I said "enough, just get on with it".
