Cockpit Panels


The cockpit panels can be made to different standards.


The easy way

Print the rotating indicator disc on a clear film like the ones used for overhead projectors.

You can get these for both laser and ink-jet printers. Cut the disc out with a pair of scissors.  

Mount the dial with a flat head pin.

Bend the pin on the backside of the panel and secure it with a small piece of tape.

Precision is important when you pierce the disc and panel sheet.

Make sure to hit the marked centre point.

When playing: Fix the pilot record sheet to the cockpit panel with a paper clip.

Make notes on the panel during the game using a pencil so you are able to

use a eraser and reuse the panel.


















Luxury panels

Print and laminate both the indicator discs and the Cockpit panels

with a heat laminating machine, cut the panel and disc as above.


Make a hole with a 2mm punch.

Mount the disc with a small double cap leather rivet, you can find them

and the punch in a leather or sewing supply shop.


Add a self-adhesive pocket (buy them in office stationary shops) for the pilot record sheet.

Measurements: 95 x 60 mm (standard business card).

Use two pockets for two-seaters, one for each crew member.

Use a thin whiteboard marker or thin permanent marker for noting damage, ammo use etc.

You can clean the laminating foil by rubbing with ordinary cleaning alcohol afterwards and

reuse the cockpit-panel over and over again..
