1/32 scale wheelhouse fittings
« on: March 26, 2008, 07:58:55 PM »

Hi,
Anybody know where I can source 1/32 scale or there abouts modern wheelhouse interior fittings.
such as computer screens, phones etc. I Googled a company called hobby lobby in germany, but they only take a bank to bank transfer and the banks here want Ģ20 quid for the privilege.
Any fellow boaters know any other company's?

Regards
Destroyer42 :(

Just an odd thought. As far as computer screens and other almost flat items are concerned (e.g. dials etc), if you have a digital camera why not just photograph everything you think may be suitable and re-scale the pic to fit? as most electronics are either fitted into a pretty simple box or set in as part of a console this shouldn't be too difficult.

I would have a browse through all the different manufacturers here and see what they have:

As Bryan says use of digital photography can be very usefull in creating a realistic bridge scene as well.  What specific ship are we talking about?

Further to the suggestion about using photographs of dials, screens etc......................

There is a site (much used by the flying boys) which expressly provides a wide range of dials and instrument panels which are intended to be used for this very purpose.

Sorry, but I have lost the reference. I guess if you search via Google for "cockpit instruments" etc. you may find something. Another possible source is one of the traders who does decals. Have a look in the Mayhem "Traders Directory".

Try www.modellbau-kaufhaus.de  They have instrument panels and modules but I dont know what scale. Lots of other nice goodies too worth a look.

Great find.  It appears that most of these products range from 1/20-1/50, so should fit most everything..........except our budgets :o.

If you want to backight your basic instruments, try Waldren model products available through Roll Models.  These are similar to Mike Grant decals, but are printed on clear plastic.  I will attempt to post a picture of the product and how it would appear with fiber optics as backights.
