Realistic Looking Lettering on MIP, overhead, etc.
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
thanks!The only thing grotesquely wrong with Humanity is the Humans...

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________________________
