Default Centuri UFO Embossing Templates

Doug Holverson posted this info on the Old Rockets List (parent of this forum).

These are 3D printed embossing plates to make your own clone of the Centuri UFO. Somebody start printing some plastic!

Looks good!

With today's technology micro lites can be used like in the second pic.

Are they micro lites?

Mine has glow-in-the-dark decals. That would be my guess with these as well. I haven't applied mine yet, but the saucer is painted.

Looks like electro-luminescent strip behind cut out holes.
