The white lettering on the control knobs looks great.
Any tips on how you did it?

Thanks,

Keith,

I painted the knobs and let the paint dry a few days before adding the white. I used Testors model paint for the white. It was applied with a fine brush, then I used a paper towel with mineral spirits, gently wiping and dabbing away the excess paint.
