That control panel is massive. I thought it must be a 4-player at first. Is there a reason you built it so large?

Hey, Danwelsh.  It's looking good so far. Keep up the good work.  Where did you get your control panel graphic?  That thing looks nice!

A little creativity to help stretch them dollars and no one would know unless you tell them!!! I've been looking at posters for control panels every since I saw someone else do the same thing!!!
