Very nice, how did you letter it?

Engraved about 0.3mm then filled with thinned out paint , then light sand off top of acrylic. Did take a few test cuts on mdf to get x360 controller to fit right.

Hi everyone and thanks for all your posts.

I received my Storm Keyboard in the post today.
It looks awesome and its pretty heavy too.
Anyhow I had a little play around drawing up the idea I had for the new control panel.
Haven't put all the buttons etc on yet but you can get a bit of an idea of the layout I was thinking of.

Have a look and see what you think. I would be very grateful for any feedback.

Cheers Al

Looks good but one thing is I would have the MPG beside the keyboard if possible, I think it could get knocked where it is and also if you do use it a fair amount I think you would find it awkward.

Thanks Hood. Good point.
Maybe Ill look at recessing the handwheel a bit.

I,m normally running a mazak machining center so I,m trying to sort of base my layout on that just to keep things familiar.

Cheers Al.

If you find it fine on the Mazak then it may be good where it is.
