Hi all, I've made a control panel for my layout. I used 10 mm thick MDF. It's 18" x 6.5" in size, which was the minimum I wanted. I drew the plan and then drilled all the holes for the LEDs and push buttons. I counter drilled the holes from the backside to make it possible to add the LED and the nuts for the push buttons. I primed it with cellulose first and then black Badger Stynylrez primer. I then airbrush painted white where the track lines were going to be. I masked the lines with 1/16" automotive masking tape. I painted over the tape with white to minimize the risk of bleeding. The panel was then painted with dark green acrylic paint. Around the tracks I shaded with black. This is how it looked when I removed the masking tape. I added texts with Microscale decals. The panel is clearcoated with Alclad matte. Now it's the fun part; installing all the electrical bits. I use the panel control system from MGP Here in Sweden, a very competent system with its own programming app and uses Loconet for communication.
