3½" x 6" (89mm x 152mm) sheet of 0.010” brass for 1/24 - 1/25 scale models and dioramas. Contains various different control panels. Also includes backlight films for the larger displays and meters as well as through holes that make lighting simple and add to the realism.
Ideal for diorama makers and scratch builders, these photoetched parts duplicate many of the control consoles used in nearly every science fiction film and television show of the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s.
Many of the original pieces were surplus and obsolete computer systems of the USA’s nationwide air traffic control system, and the hundreds of blinking lights, flip switches, and radar scopes added an air of high technology to those early programs.
Examples can be seen in Batman (Adam West series), Planet of the Apes (film and TV series), all Irwin Allen productions, Fantastic Voyage, The President’s Analyst, and many, many others, including the Tracy/Hepburn classic, Desk Set.
