If you have an inkjet printer, and some matt varnish you can make your own very easily
The paper price is very reasonable too

If you dont fancy doing them yourself drop me a PM and I can probably knock you off a few

Wouldn't mind a set of them myself to finish off my boat nicely..... looks like you and friend are in business!!  :-))

I have been adding some wheelhouse details to help make things look a bit more realistic. My friend made a wall clock graphic (I made the clock frame from scrap plasti-card. He also made a wall calendar with the year 1975 (the year I was born). Pictured are some other electronic fittings under construction. To the left you can just make out a head rest of a seat.

Do it as RMAS Cricklade.

Just click on it and it opens up fine - but even unopened I can read it?
I wonder why you don't see it?
