Link to download of marine gear from the Czech modeling forum MONAKO. The devices are in PDF on various scales and you just need to print the photo paper with an inkjet printer and then cut and paint and the dashboard is in the world.

In CDR. And ZIP :

With the laser printer you have a problem, but unfortunately I do not have it at home, so I have to push the devices well and occasionally when I place them in the outdoor unit, I use a two-component five-minute epoxy. Somehow I have to advise. Zdeněk

Hi Inkhoust
Thank you for sharing the files.
It occurs to me that if you make a brass tube with a bevelled edge then put the dial print in the bottom it would be possible to use clear casting resin to make the dial face and at the same time protect the print.
I already use this for my portholes so I will try it out and post the result.

Live long and prosper

The ink can be protected with a light spray of varnish. 😉
Printing on glossy photo paper with highest resolution / quality enhances the realism.
Cheers Doug 😎
