I did what would be the equivalent of a very large engraved one, the front panel of a receiver with raised lettering (etched background)

It was in a bit of a state, all the letters, numbers etc were raised but by not a lot and were encrusted with rust, it was more difficult to do than the individual ID plates in my previous post but it turned out very well, the "silvered" lettering etc is not silver paint but the steel of the panel, the panel was sealed all over with some clear varnish/laquer once completed.
