Howdy! I'm building my own cockpit, but I am having to build everything as I don't have 20,000 dollars to build a nice one. I have a budget of about 2000 thats pretty much gone. :( I am trying to find a way to do the lettering for the cockpit and I don't know how or where to begin. any ideas?? at the moment i just have clear stickers on various switches and its tacky looking. Even worse, the lettering is in black :shock:

You Could try White lettering several guys have done their panels that way and it looks very nice! Is just a lot of work cause you have to design the lettering to go with the panels but it might be easier you can use black light to make letters look brighter!

I Used a frosted White Transparent Paper, and loaded it into my Ink Jet. Where ever I wanted lettering I just typed it in and then inverted the colors The inverted color was airbus blue, so Where I had text I got no print inc, so just stayed frosted white, and everywhere else was the Airbus Blue.

It worked good for me.

Just a suggestion
