No idea, it's been in my bits box for years. It is made of metal but I sprayed it silver anyway to match the colouring of the panel.

And with a few more buttons I think it's finished.

I spoke too soon! New demat controls. I was never that happy with the original. I'd like one of those big levers that looks like the thing they use to rev up the QE2 but don't think that would really fit with my console.

That new demat control looks great! It really fits the style of the rest of the console. How did you make it, if I might ask?

I took the original tab off the knife switch, removed the middle switch and covered the slot in card, quite seamlessly too. The brass bits are bottle tops which I filled with polymer clay, making a slot for the tops of the switches and then after cooking glued them onto the notches that had been in the original tab.

Looks excellent

Just ordered some transfer paper to do a Gallifreyan symbol on the demat lever. Not sure whether to do one central symbol or three different ones in a line.

I would say that depends on how large you're going to make the symbol. One large symbol in the center would be cool. Three small ones would also look cool: one at each end, and one in the middle. It might even look really cool with a medium symbol in the center (Gallifreyan label for "Flight Initiation Control"), with a small symbol at each end: one for "Materialise"; one for "Dematerialise".

Actually, I kind of like that last one, but that's just me.

I bought the wrong kind of stuff!

I bought the wrong kind of stuff! I need something I can print on. Any ideas?

Urgh, too many short messages ...

See if that works.

What about something like transparency film? If one long strip of it isn't flexible enough to bend around the top of the lever housing, you could cut the print out into three parts. Then you'd only be dealing with a small part of the curve rather than the whole "hemi".

Any print store or office supply store that does printing should have that film. I know in the US it comes in different weights with some as thin as tissue paper. Stores like that also have laser printers which would be the best to print the images of the symbols out from as the laser printer won't run or smudge when you're handling the transparency.

I hope some of this helps.

I see what you mean but what I was after was something more like a rub on tattoo.
