After trying several materials I settled on a 2 part lens, surface lens with legends and rear acrylic clear spacer. The legend face has a stipple finish as similar to the original ones. 14.87mm square as the originals. These will fit both JayEl and AO indicators. I included the ECM indicators in the set at the same size for those doing those themselves. Also the Marker Beacon ,ENBL and Run indicators. Included in the pics below are 2 original legends,(for reference) one from a JayEl and one from an AO indicator. These are reverse engraved, as you can see, all that's needed to make the center legends white on the TWP, TWA and ECM legends is to backfill white on the center engraved letters. Excess does not need to be removed, just be careful not to bleed over into the outer letters. Also, all legends are clear and require a colored bulb or filter. Included are the legends pictured in the fist picture below and 32 square clear spacers and 3 round spacers. Spacer were not made for the ECM legends as they do not use JayEL type switches.

cost is $20 , $4.60 shipping in the US and $8 shipping overseas priority US mail

and yes, I totally destroyed 2 of my indicators to test these. Now I have a better
idea how to take these apart. :DOH:

Anyone know or remember where the tutorial for taking these apart is? I couldn't find the post :brickwall:

mmmh, tempting :)

Mike, some comments if I may?

- Handoff button missed the diamond. that's quite relevant in the diamonf float mode of the RWR
- Unknown is misspelled Uknown (now you make me hesitant here...)
- missing line under TF-FAIL
- You miss the CADB quad light for the test panel


Well done ;)
i'll check if those can fit my homemade indicator

oh,,damn, proof read everything,,,
ok,, I'll go over these and correct the set before doing the production run.

I had the test panel in the set, must have deleted before the test run. I'll add that.
I'll check your stencil set for the diamond reference.

ECM legends made larger.

I'll post up the new sheet later tonight, thanks for looking it over. Stephane usually does the proof reading for me. :)

Updated the reference pics with Olivier's suggestions, made the ECM legends larger, round legends are .45"

added a few more non BLK52 legends. I'll send everyone that contacted me a PM once I get the production done,
Day or 2
