    labeling panels.

    Right now im building a very basic simpit geared towards a 737. Right now I have built a pedestal to attach my Saitek TQ to and to start building panels. Right now I have a condensed overhead panel that I will attach to the pedestal. It is made out of black ABS and im looking for a cost effective way to create white lettered labels for the switches. Any ideas....???

    Re: labeling panels.

    Try searching for handheld label printers and using white text on clear tape.

    Or...

    Print black text on clear adhesive film.

    Or....

    Use letraset white rub-on lettering (http://www.letraset.com/design/shopd...&cat=Lettering)

    k.regards.

    Re: labeling panels.

    Hi there,
    I use a Dymo Labelmanager 120P and white-on-clear labels for my Airbus cockpit. It's pretty cheap and I think the results are good. You can see some at my website listed below...
