Q:How to make instruments.......A: a lot of skill I would think which sadly I don't have :Hypnotized:

 

Q:How to make simple panels.......A: 5mm white acrylic/jig saw/electric drill/sticky letters/paint/tweezers

 

It really is that easy to make a simple/basic panel,try it.... the cost for one small panel is minimal.

The basic one is to get Project Magenta's IFR Panel running on an older PC. on a single 19" flat screen monitor. You can enhance this with a 3mm aluminium cutouts for the gauges and place the the cutout over the panel. You can get Go flight avioincs lwith rotrary knobs that you can assign for some of the rotray knobs required for the gauages, like OBS knob etc

 

You can still improve on this by adding individual rotary knobs on the cutout sheet..but then you need to read up a bit on how to use i/o cards and what not. A tad more complext but doable.
