Due to the COVID-19 pandemic I have had to shift my main project from creating a wood propeller to making an LED “Neon Sign”. This shift was driven by the fact that I lost access to the wood shop and therefore could not make my design. I got the Idea for this project from Chris Lehr and his design review presentation. I was struggling to figure out how I was going to move forward with my original project or what I was going to pivot to, and after hearing his presentation I knew I wanted to make a sign of my own.
My first thought was to make an American Flag and incorporate the unit which I will be a part of after graduation. I have had a couple of ideas to do this, and I have included images of those designs below.
I am also considering doing an outline of the T-6 and T-38 training aircraft. I would attempt to re-create the images below, and incorporate the “80th FTW” between the jets.
Regardless of which design I chose to proceed with I will follow the following timeline. I finished purchasing all of the materials and supplies needed today. In the following days I plan to finalize my design and begin fabrication. Before I finalize my design I need to figure out how to solder the lights to the wires I am using because this will directly impact what I am able to achieve.
