Has it been six months since the mod came out yet? I just wondered whether it would be OK to share this quick fix I did for the Maser tachometer, that alters it to a 1950's Jaeger type- as used in the 250F in period, as far as I've been able to find out.
It's by no means a criticism of the amazing work of the mod team on the wonderful 55 Mod, but the tach in the Maser has always looked a bit like a modern-retro offering from Autometer to my eyes. The font and overall look are identical to their "Golden Oldies" range.
Oh, and as you can see, I've added a works ID plate as well.
Anyway, if it's OK with everyone, and people want it, I'll upload it here, but I thought I'd better ask first.
Thank you again to everyone who participated in the creation of the 55 Mod.

Just unzip to your GPL/ cars/ cars 55/ eagle folder. If you don't like it, just delete the MasDash mip and you'll be back to normal.
One thing- in order to fit around the Jaeger logo, I had to make the brake fade indicator fractionally smaller, but I like the way it looks now- it actually looks like a little warning bulb in the tach when it lights up :-)
Edit: V1.2 now uploaded, see post #13 below.

Sounds like a 'job recruiter' phrase, my friend. I hope that you reach a satisfactory pay scale offer.
Thanks, again, Del.

I'd also really like to do a black tach, because I've seen those in pics of 250 F's...but I have no idea how to turn the needle white. Still, thank you for the feedback, I'll keep at it :-)
