Hi, Steve,If you're talking about the front office cabin, go to http://www.mikesflightdeck.com/links_1.htm and scroll down to "Panels, back lit". If you're referring to the passenger cabin, try searching for "aircraft salvage". Companies like Barnstormers and Air Salvage International part out aircraft.Mikewww.mikesflightdeck.com

I guess one could do them from cardboard and laminate some paper strips ripped from a newspaper on top of it, with layers of glue in between. (the stuff you use to put your wallpapers on the walls with)As a kid we used to do all kinds of theatre masks with that technique, so it is pretty useful method for making complex shapes that do not need to be extremely strong (you have the main structure in place anyway that holds the thing together)Once you have the basic shape done, use some filler putty to smoothen it out and finish with sandpaper treatment and paint. Sure, a bit of work, but I think might work out pretty OK.Balsa is another good material, even those two combined might work - thin balsa sheets for flat surfaces, and the papier-mache-laminate stuff to do shapes on top of it. Then some filler and primer and paint and it looks as good as anything. I guess the best method depends on what kind of objects you need to do.Tuomas
