Jerry;

Great idea! I think I did something similar when I made the gauges for my whimsical battery powered "D-cell" locomotive. I copied the gauge faces used with the Trackside Details Gauge set.



Yours look much better than mine did.

Best wishes,
David Meashey

Dave,
I've drawn them out like that also. Used brass eylets/grommets for the gauge housing, it works fine also. A guy on the G1MRA forum had the drawings, I decided to look for pictures. Found one page that had a lot of them, I chose the clearest ones.

Thanks LEs,
Here's a shot of the backhead with a few on. The super glue messed up the printing a little, so tape on the back also may be a good idea. They do look pretty 3-D here, I thought, may not convey too well in this pix.
