Good evening from 'The Dockyard'.

More progress this week adding details to the port main motor switchboard.

The attached photo shows the current stage of the switchboard. A little more work next week should see this done. I'll be adding handwheels after it's painted and these locate on all of the raised rods you can see. The smaller rods represent push buttons.

I also spent a bit of time making 10 x voltmeter/ammeter dials. I drilled a 2.0mm hole length ways through a 3.0mm diameter styrene rod. Sliced this into small sections and then filed a 2.0mm diameter rod to a half moon shape, sliced this into small sections and fitted these into the holes to give the dial profile.

I also spent a bit of time preparing a photo to make into decals which i will fix behind clear sheet to give that depth and detail when placed behind the dial face.

The attached photo shows the half moon shapes fitted.
