Default Translucent Tuning Dial 'knobs' - re-manufacture?

Does anyone have experience of casting [or 3D printing] TRANSLUCENT tuning dial 'knobs'?

We all know about the 'cloudy' TR82 'knobs' ..... but I'm currently interested in those associated with the Nordmende 'Clipper', 'Transita'', and 'Mambo' sets i.e. the 603F's etc. These are very rare and just don't 'turn up'!

I have one knob to copy [which is a good start] ..... but wonder how successful people have been [if at all] in re-manufacturing these optically translucent components.
Red to red, black to black. Throw the switch and stand well back!
