this stage doesn't look like much - but it will look much better when it is complete.
I'm hanging completed panels so that they don't get lost. Essentially I have to cut 12 panels to make six.

so far I have 9.

Pre- envisioning sequence - I haven't built any support structures just yet - Just wanted to see what the final product might look like.:

Nice work! :)

It's sort of inspiring me to redo my (very early stages) 3D version... *must not get sidetracked*
In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

The Template(Above) is slightly smaller than the positive(Below) that is made from it.(this has been taken into account and I made six positives from it.)

What's This?... Text ... Well I've reached a point where I have to think about my next step. I have plenty of ideas on what I need to do next. But at this stage I need to look at pictures of the console and make sure everything is where it is supposed to be. Still I'm pretty happy with it so far.

Thanks Crispin - I'm glad you like it. I try to take lots of pictures so people can see how to make it. Like a DIY. I enjoy those types of Build Diaries - so I figure other people feel the same.

So I need to complete each of the shelves for each panel of the console. Good thing I've kept all my scrap pieces I've cut out.

trimmed the blanks - taped them in place and added some glue to smooth the joins.

repeat on each similar panel.

Excellent work, and some fiddly cutting and even fiddlier glueing!

Although that said, cutting and glueing the millions of buttons will be even more of a chore I expect?
