I might check in with Ian @ Ad Astra masks . He is in the process of getting a custom decal distributor to supplement his mask sets.

 

I also might check around/Google some of the many Radio Control specialty places on line. They make instrument decals for R/C aircraft that are quite large........... 1/8 or even 1/5 scale...........they may have something in a smaller scale or you might get some references for someone that does. You might even be able to scale the 1/8 or 1/5 scale inst decals down, as apposed to scaling smaller ones up.

 

HTH

Cheers,

Brian

Hi Marek ,

 

Why not use a photo copy of the decals . EX,1/32 to 1/18. 32 divide 18 x 100 will give you 177% that should give you the right size for the instruments. Use a heavy grade paper 65 lb 0r 175gram (same paper) and after you print seal the print before you put it in the instrument dail that way it wont run .Hope this helps
