Old volvos (and new ones) rule. bad ass build man
Nice work on the dashboard Dagabba!!
How are you going to do the different meters?
Thanks Beanos! Yeah, I'm trying to work that out. Probably print some graphics, just need to get the resolution high enough. I could mount on lexan and put an LED behind... but I also don't want loads of wiring... so many possibilities- best part of a scratch build but sometimes too many options for me to procrastinate over!
to have a quality print with a quality image too, it is better to do it on glossy photo paper! The classic printing paper tends to absorb the ink and make the print blurred on very small details...
Dag, I just read this whole thread over the course of a few days, and man, I can only dream for the level of detail you are putting into this. I currently have a unpublished build that I'm working on that is striving for this detail.
Drool worthy....so cool to watch this progress. Absolutely next level details, from that tire well, suspension design, under hood work to the dash, simply amazing!!!!
Very well said ^^^^^^^^^^^^
Each piece has been a absolute joy to look at.
Beautiful dash details!
To do the backlit gauges really well, you'll want some ''printer transparency paper'' clear plastic sheets that worked with overhead projectors, and take inkjet nicely. Ink takes even longer to dry than photopaper. You'll probably want a light diffuser behind it.
This is just absolutely brilliant!
