I'd love to see some pics as a fellow UK cab builder. I'm about half way through my CP at the mo. The panel itself is just about done, I'm waiting on the I-PAC and the sticks and buttons.

As for plexi, check out my reply in your previous thread.

Unfortunately (!) its actually pretty piss poor because I rushed it  ::) I'll try and get some pics tonight tho - its a pretty standard boxy build.

I hope that it will eventually look a little like this:

I took a couple of pics of my CP, and although it isn't really that impressive to look at at the moment, I'm hoping it will be soon:





As I said, not too impressive :P just a slightly shaped lump of chipboard with some templates taped on it :)

I've built a base for the CP to sit on, and it's held on by a couple of hinges.

It's really just for prototyping at the moment (hence the chipboard) but it's looking good so far :)

Just a simple one... Plan to build 'properly' on the weekend - any comments? Should I have 4 buttons for instance?

I just found this post.  Could you post the template you used for your CP?

Edit: Never mind, found it.  The link on the main page is outdated, however.
