Interesting question. While Airfield would be great for lighting the backglass itself, and producing chase patterns behind the image, it would be a bit of a hack to wire it up to seven segment displays in its current form. That said, the matrix chip we employ (max7219) was designed to drive 7-segment displays, so I suppose it could be done. You’re probably better off sourcing/designing your own controller board for this though, and using Airfield to control the patterns behind the image.
