If there’s one thing any good spaceship has plenty of it’s lights and switches! Mercury is certainly no exception.
Made some real progress today modelling and implementing the signal lights and toggle switches. These are still decorative at this stage but will eventually function correctly in each variant of the Mercury capsule. The process of laying out this panel is painstaking, particularly as I chose to begin with Freedom 7 (Alan Shepard’s historic 15 minute flight) which is one of the less well documented craft in terms of cockpit layout.
