Default Wiring-Fuse Block Question

Builders,
I'm planning to use the fuse block system in my Kitfox instead of circuit breakers, AC buss, etc.

I saw somewhere a plane that had a panel mounted fuse block. All the fuses were in the panel in plane (pun intended) view. In my previous builds, I mounted the fuse block under the panel which made them hard to see and get to.

Has anyone used this system and can you tell me anything about it?

Many thanks,

Tommy

the one cb i used is for the crowbar , its also mounted on the front side of the panel with access from the bottom . i could have used the larger fuse block for the radio bus also . i used fusible links to protect the wires going to the fuse blocks . the picture of the fuse blocks is looking up , bottom is forward , encoder on the left and aux headset jacks and utility outlet on the right

Thanks guys, I found what I was looking for. It is on the RV-12. A fuse block that extends through the front of the instrument panel. Going to try uploading a picture I found. If anyone knows the Vans part number or an alternate source, please let me know. You may have to increase the size of the photo to see the fuse panel on the left side.

Thanks.

We put ours up under also but put a hinge on it so it was easy to get to, found a couple of pictures of the install not quite done.
