Started playing with an older-style analog fuel gauge just to get some much needed practice in. Here's the reference image:

And here is the finished model, complete with rotating needle! (Moved the needle's pivot point to center of smaller disc to allow needle to rotate evenly across entire sweep.)

Entire project took about an hour.

Hi,

My only crit here - the entire thing looks completely flat, could be done faster in PS I guess, also the dial on the bottom image has the pivot/center moved?
