as some of you know, I'm using a Spektrum 2,4 Ghz system for controlling my trains. I love controlling a loco with a stick transmitter, but want to get the whole thing more handy and suitable for one-hand operation.

And as I am a fan of steampunk design, I try to give it this certain look.

Here's my start. I first made a testing case from cardboard and put in the electronics from a Dx5e transmitter. The analog voltage indicator is from an old Kraft transmitter.
To get a feeling for the later look, I covered the front with wood veneer and put some brass applications on.

Not finished at all, but it's on the way to meet the image that I have in my head.
