IN­STRU­MENT LENSES

Model Airplane News - - TIPS & TRICKS - Roger Mickey, Los Angeles, Cal­i­for­nia

Adding small de­tails to your scale air­craft gives it that ex­tra per­sonal touch. One such de­tail is adding cock­pit in­stru­men­ta­tion that looks like the real thing. The first step is to visit your lo­cal craft store and pick up some “wig­gle eyes.” They come in as­sorted sizes and work great for the in­stru­ment lenses. Re­move the eye from the lens, and in­stall your pa­per in­stru­ment in its place. Now add it to your cock­pit’s in­stru­ment panel. Need some in­stru­ment faces? Type in “air­craft in­stru­ments” into your In­ter­net browser to find the pho­tos you’re look­ing for, save them, and then re­size and print to the scale needed.
