I'm currently building a control panel for my 1980's era model railway and need some 'digital' style numbers and letters to make some headcodes, 1M23, 2T36 etc etc to replicate those shown on a real signallers panel. I can't find any as yet. Any ideas??
***For on the panel? I take it you want the codes to be changeable? You will need an x character 7 segment display (x being the max number of digits you want to display). This will also need a driver circuit to work..... and should also probably have a mount bezel to make it easy to fit to the panel.
What is the target size and colour. If you give more info I may be able to point you to some usable items
Try to avoid the inkjet printer paper as you have to spray a matt varnish to fix the ink, I tried 4 types of varnish, without any sucess.
If you dont have access to a Laser Printer, try your local library, or stationary shop.
I make a whole A4 sheet at a time using MS Publisher, you could even use MS Word or any of the free publishing packages.
