    The best thing about Rutan's method is that anyone can hand-craft an airplane in his garage with simple tools. The worst thing about it is that you have to hand craft the airplane with simple tools in your garage. I wonder if there might be a middle ground. Random example: fully pre-shaped foam fuselage parts that self-fixture together prior to glassing.
  2. Thanks, this seems to be the mother-of-all-threads on this topic: https://modwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=180347 I like how they used a copper pour pattern to create texture on this one: https://modwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=3226334#p3226334 It also has bare sections for LED indicators to shine through.
  3. Nice. That gives me a further idea. The PCB material is sorta translucent... It would take some experimentation but perhaps you could backlight the text by creating openings in the black solder mask corresponding to the text. I don't know if the white silk screen print is opaque or not. The registration with the solder mask might be hit or miss, since this is not the intended application.
