|Original main engine control panel and radar "pin-up" where the wing engine control panel lived|
The first project was to transform the combined control panel that I created with photoshop into something real. Here it is complete and installed. I had to reset the configuration on each display so they would realize that all the individual gauges are gone, but after that was done everything worked great.

With the space freed up by the wing engine control panel, there is now room for the 1835 radar display. This is a stand-alone 4kw radar that will serve as back up, and for use while at anchor to conserve power over the big 12kw radar.

Here's a good overview of the upper helm panel with the new components in situ.
