    Default BSG control panels

    Apologies if this has already been discussed, not seen it .
    The four control panels in the base set are quite difficult I have found to read, so I am looking to pick out the lettering and numbers etc.

    So, what, if anything, have others used, medium and colours to pick out the details on the consoles ?

    I have seen pictures somewhere on this site of control panels where someone had highlighted the markings but I do not know where they are. Sorry, Chris.

    DM highlighted his numbers with yellow & dry brushed the main bits metallic. Looked really nice.

    Now that I've played and run games, it's time to follow some of these examples! I, too, agree the consoles are hard to read - these various highlight options are marvelous

    All the best,
    Matt

    Love what can be done for the consoles. Another project jumps to the upper end of the project list.

    I find that the easiest solution for readability is a silver Sharpie. Not a big demand on one's dexterity since the numbers are raised.

    Welcome to the Aerodrome, Adam, from here 'across The Pond' in the United Kingdom.

    Thank you for the silver Sharpie idea. The simplest ideas are often the best.

    Just remember to store them point down. I had a few from my Dad who forgot that. Dried out very fast.
