ahoora, I haven't used any of these but have looked into this in the past. Maybe something here.

I have also thought about decals for model/RC cars. I'm hoping you can find something and report back with results.

When I Searched here yesterday, I used "door Bezel Lettering" in the search. There were about 15 - 20 hits that came up so you could most likely go thru those pretty quick.

Here is another that may also give you some info. I didn't take the time to read thru all of it but there is about 50+ posts in that thread.

Model train lettering comes in many fonts, and some may be close to the OEM lettering. You will probably need a clearcoat over them to keep them nice. There is also a product called Micro Sol that is designed to blend the substrate of the decal into the part surface, before clearcoating.

Architectural firms used to use burnished lettering for charts, and you may still be able to find them in various fonts. The burnished lettering was also used for model trains at one point, as well. Again, it will require a clearcoat to protect them, but the Micro Sol will not be needed. To burnish, you need a small rounded end rod, or stick to push on the backside of the "film" to release the letters, and make them stick to the part. You need to get a number of sheets, in case you make a mistake, and need to remove one or more letters. They will come of with little effort.

If someone has the know how and the equipment, how about us going in on this idea?
