The first "Pilot" dashboard is going to be made! (finally!)

Once the dashboard is finished, we are also going to offer it.
It's a custom order for a customer, so no new mold will be made from it, BUT...if there are four more persons who like to have one let us know, because then we have the possibility to cover the expensive molding costs else it will be a custom order which is more work to fabricate the dashboard.

For anyone who is interested in the "Pilot" dashboard, you can follow the progress of it on my Facebook page.
Once it's finished, I'm planning to take it into production and the creating process will come on my Knight Passions site as well.

I like the way that the Voicebox Bezel is moulded in but the coutdown only appears to have 3 sequencers unless you'd class the very front as the 4th? Can't say I remember where the front step is in the pilot episode.

The last one on the top is the fourth one. Razz

But, the count down unit will be cut out and it will become one straight part.

Here is a photo from the original one...

The "Pilot" dashboard will be available soon by the way!
In case someone is interested, let me know, any "Pilot" dashboard that I can sell will help me to cover the costs for making it available, because it becomes more expensive then thought.

This way I can start a new project like the fourth season switch pod unit for example sooner.
The shipping costs are cheap to the UK also. Smile

The "Pilot" two tv dashboard is taking shape. It finished and painted in primer, almost ready for molding. Will be available for production in about two weeks!

Smile It took a long time, but I finally decided to make it available. Actually because of a customer who wanted it.
I need to get some new products available, this will be number one!

The mold from the "Pilot" dashboard is finished, so now the first dashboard will go into production!

Here are some photos from the mold parts and from the dashboard where it's made from.

On the dashboard is made an edge from wood, this is for extra support for the mold and to know where to cut off the fiberglass when a new dashboard is made inside the mold. Who wants to be the first to have the new "Pilot" dashboard?!

Thanks guys!

Yes, they will fit.
The dashboard itself is an Original, I only made some improvements to it, like the big bend in the left corner and I corrected all the openings for the electronics, because nothing was straight.
