3) Formation Lights
4) Engines

The trimmers .... (or pots ).... on the board are so I can set the brightness of LEDs for each circut. For instance, the insturments and formation lights are WWWAAAAYYYYY ttooooo bright on full power, so the pots will let me turn them down to a more realalistic level. But the helmet lighting, and the engines will probably be left at near full power.

That is nothing short of absolutley fucking COOL!!!!

Being able to adjust each lighting effect will sure add realism, and as mentioned (twice) will be [cartman]Kickass![/cartman]

Thanks again Mech, 777

Originally I asked Randy to just put one pot on the board for the instruments. He did pots on all the circuts himself, and now I'm very happy he did. After testing all the lights and seeing that more then one circut was being over driven.
It will deffinately help the realism of the lighting.

Again, if any one here needs a custom board for thier project.... I will talk with my friend and see if he's be willing to this stuff as a side job for some extra mula.

It's nearly done!!!!!!!!

The base is finished. Five toggle switches, one for main power, and four for the seperate curcuits. 9V wall power transformer.
Everything works Great!!!!!

Minor touch ups to do, now that I can have the lights on and can touch up while looking for the leaks.

Here I have taken pics of it with the Version 1 kit...("Starbuck" version).... that I did for myself.

Flying in formation... as it were.

In some of these pics you can see the significant differences in the two verions of this kit.

I will shoot more pics tonight when it gets darker and I can show everyone the lighting effects better.

For now.... enjoy all.

Gil

Ok guys

I was able to take some pics of what each switch does for the lighting.
Sorry for the dead pixels..... I guess it's time to start looking for a new digital camera.


First up is a shot to show how I mounted, and wired the switches and board.


Next.... main power switch is on.....


And the indicator on the board is on....


Next..... the Instruments....






#2..... Pilot Helmet lighting...




#3.... Formation Lights....




And lastly...#4.. Engines....
