Airwolf Computer Fascia Frame

Airwolf Computer Fascia Frame

"Please Be Aware"  this blog POST is a work in progress, the frames here are subject to change and Updates as the creator plays about with aspect ratios and details. Be sure to save as PNG to maintain transparency.

EXAMPLE 1:
PNG, screen centre is transparent, top and bottom buttons row Have Inner Shadow, also the buttons along the top and bottom row are Square.

Screen Surround Width 1920 by Height 1080 SHADOW
EXAMPLE 2:
PNG, screen centre is transparent, the buttons along the top and bottom row are Square. Buttons have No Inner Shadow

Screen Surround Width 1920 by Height 1080 NO SHADOW
EXAMPLE 3:
PNG, this has NO Buttons set, the frame is black, the Button place holders are cut out and already Transparent to throw buttons on or behind
the Top and Bottom Row are Rounded Holes

Screen Surround Width 1920 by Height 1080 NO BUTTONS ROUNDED ROWS
EXAMPLE 4:
PNG, this has NO Buttons set, the frame is black, the Button place holders are cut out and already Transparent t throw buttons on or behind
the Top and Bottom Row are Square Holes

Screen Surround Width 1920 by Height 1080 NO BUTTONS SQUARE ROWS
EXAMPLE 5:
PNG, this has the centre transparent and the buttons in place (but no text or markings)
and the top and bottom row on this one are square.

Screen Surround Width 1920 by Height 1080 HAS BUTTON BACKING
EXAMPLE 6:
PNG, this has the centre transparent and the buttons with text and the Top and Bottom Row are both Rounded

Screen Surround Width 1920 by Height 1080 ROUNDED Top and Bottom Row


To be UPDATED at some stage with more variants and maybe more of a 3D aspect.

Note that in some later episodes (season 3) you can see the top and bottom row are actually Square buttons  with an Overlay covering their edges.On this shot the corner is Broken and also note it says SEL DIOG

3x03 And a Child Shall Lead
Yet in older episodes the buttons (along the Top and Bottom) appear to be Rounded & Countersunk within the frame Flush with the buttons so they couldne't be square could they? . You can also see the buttons down the sides have curved edges leaning towards the screen.

2x14 In At The End of The Road

Both frames & buttons contradict them selves and i firmly believe their was two Fascias created, one of which was probably / possibly used Outside the moch up.

In this shot (also from season 2) you can clearly see just how Flush them rounded buttons are, you can see broken parts too. God knows what happened to the corner ?.

2x12 Condemned
They must have had at least 2 Fascias though right ?
I wonder if a camera fell forward and smashed the original lol

special thanks to Adam Lettow and Mark J Cairns for providing me with random Bluray screen grabs to work with and inspect for detail changes.

Convergent Technologies Workslate EDCC Keyboard Interface

Screen Shot from Airwolf Season 2 Episode 3 Moffetts Ghost


Airwolf's computer keyboard was a portable WorkSlate made by Convergent Technologies in 1983.

It was a portable device using NiCad batteries and used a micro cassette tape to load and save data.
It featured a Hitachi 6303 CPU and 16K of RAM along with a 64K ROM, it also has a serial port.

The screen is a 16x46 character monochrome LCD and the CMOS comes from a Motorola 6800.

When you figure the Airwolf premier on Tv was in January 1984 and you know the work slate didn't go into production until November 1983 it makes you wonder...






The WorkSlate initially cost $895 upon release, its rival at the time (TRS-80 Model 100) cost $800 with 8K of RAM and $1000 with 18K of RAM.


Only around 8000 where made and the workslate was discontinued in July 1984, the company lost approximately $15 million. 









TRIVIA:
notice the keyboard has a "DoIt" key.

The President of the company "Allen Michaels" used to roam the halls of the company at night and spray paint "DoIT" everywhere, hence the key name.

A4 Size Image, Santini Air Jeep License Plate On Velvet Type Backing.

I noticed while working on recreating the front plate (referencing the jeeps front in Firestorm)  that doms plate had no TAGS, special thanks to Thomas Higginson for the info that some states they just TAG the back plate and with that in mind thanks to tom i fabricated a back plate (again however) not screen accurate, but fun none the less.

 I might re-edit the REAR/BACK plate if someone can provide me with visual proof of the real TAGS.. if not then they stand as is.

REFERENCE IMAGES:

2x02 - Firestorm
You can also see the plate in 2x17 - Natural Born
Note that Dom only had one jeep (the hard top and the roll bar are both the same vehicle)
You can see the roll bar support through the side window in this shot  :)

Jeep Keys and Licenses Frame


When i make something airwolf related its often pretty unusual, and never seen before. Its also most often a really simple concept that can be used as is OR expanded upon by the fans.

So here we have another classic bit of fan made fun anyone can get printed off and put it in a frame.

I don't have a printer up and running so i haven't done any testing at all

Jeep Keys, Key Ring and Licenses on a custom velvet looking backing texture designed in  A4 size and would be best suited to A4 Glossy Photo Paper to give the keys and the licenses that glossy silver and laminated effect.

That glossy paper effect should look even better behind the glass or perspex in the frame.

NOTE: these keys are sadly 1985 to 1996 OEM Branded keys. Unfortunately the 1975 to 1984 Jeep keys are OEM Branded with AMOS rather than JEEP.

The keys used here where a photo (from eBay) of Blank Uncut jeep keys for sale, they were given an outer bevel to give them depth and were cut in photoshop. The keyring was also a photo, given a bevel and a shadow to emphasise it being thicker than what it looked. None of what you see is a Hard Copy, even the licenses are made in photoshop, what your looking at is all digital creation.

That Said.......


You can buy JEEP and the AMOS branded OEM Keys off ebay, you can design a backing texture OR use real cloth. You can Print and Laminate the licenses i made for String and for Dominic, buy a key ring. You could actually create all this physically in a frame for a few pound so it visually looks more realistic up close (though clearly heavier to hang)

The perfect Christmas or Birthday gift printed and framed or created with real peices and framed.

You'd pay $45 for this on eBay if the image here had a WATERMARK.. So leave a comment or some sh*t in appreciation for the artists time or like it on facebook and SHARE IT...

BE WARNED..... LURKING & LEECHING KILLS CREATIVITY..
i don't use price tags, i never have.. consider that..... log into google.. leave a comment below
INSPIRE....

Dominic Santini California Driving License

FAN MADE
I couldn't find a 1980's license or any other California design older than this style to copy

NOT TO BE SOLD ON eBay UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

Just for those outside the USA or even In the USA pondering on a few things...

Class = A, B, C (C = he can drive trucks, PSV and stuff)

End = license addons, M being for motorcycles, ive set dom's to NONE
Oddly in the UK an Endorsement is a penalty that affects/increases your insurance and not an addition that shows more road competence.

Rstr = restrictions were like Provisional or maybe Automatic and other things would be noted

2570 has nothing Specific to do with the address and can be seen on many California licenses, its related to a penal code for that state the license is issued under (for uk that is a law or by-law kinda thing for the county council issuing it)

In the USA they have the MM//DD//YY  unlike the uk who use the DD/MM/YY

Airwolf never mentioned his birth DAY at all but made reference to flying with strings old man and ferrying planes during pearl harbour so he was defiantly enlisted during WWII so he had to be atleast 18 in 1941/42, so ive used 1922 as his fictional birthday (though ernest was born in 1917 making him 66 years and 9 months old when filming airwolf) and Dominic was probably supposed to be around aged 62 in the show. Thanks to adam lettow for piecing that theory together.

HGT source comes from a good source tied to the airwolf community
WGT is estimated from that height from a couple of good sources in the airwolf community

I don't have any idea of an address at all so i went with the business address & if you've seen the side of the hanger in "truth about holly" its plausible he could have spent time living their

California licenses expire every 5 years on the persons birthday, doms one for details, so if you have 10 days to renew it then he did it on the first day he could.

Dom wore black leather cowboy boots with heals, would have made him look taller than what he was


Last but not least the  CA Code of 92561 is for the Santini Air Hanger (formerly Jet Copters Inc) and now used by Helinet Aviation which kinda does what dominics company did and jet copters too.
