Those look amazing as always. I especially like the colors you went with.

This continues one of the coolest things happening anywhere in the world of immersive gameplay geekery. The panels look SO GOOD and your work documenting them is very appreciated. So impressive.

Great to see these in action last weekend at Mike's!  We didn't have a chance to connect, but it's always a treat to see these boards running.

Thanks, everyone. I really need to make a point to get some photos while we are playing.

Thanks, Mark. I totally missed you coming through -- must have been in the middle of a mission. We got to play a few siege missions and couple new scripts. Had a great time! A couple of runs through Mike's Armada V training mission gave me some ideas for an Inquisitor strike protocol. Mike's a real fan of combined arms it seems.

Thanks! It's the kind of touch that is totally extraneous, but so much fun to do.

Update:

Last two side panels are in production. Given how the block IIIs went, I never thought I'd see the end of this design. Things have changed.

Lots of snow today -- stayed inside and made starship parts!

Science and Comms are now complete with a full set of panels:

Checked another box on the to-do list: The projector pedestal frame is now refit and ready to go! Next step is to add some longer PVC pipe to the screen frame and figure out the DMX light mounts.

Finally finished something I meant to do almost 3 years ago -- add lights to the bridge. I got my first inspiration from other bridge designs posted here and then some know-how from Mark's DMX workshop at Armada 3. As things seem to go, I got sidetracked by the lure of making more controls panels -- but no more! I have finally taken those LEDs I got from Mark and made them into light fixtures to stick on the projector stand.
