Re: ET&WNC conductor hat badge?
Lee I had some one-off brass parts photo-etched for an HOn3 bridge by a British company PPD Limited.
It was a thin 0.55mm sheet of brass about 600mm x 1200mm for $70 delivered. They go up to 4mm thickness I believe.
You could half etch the loose bits in the letters and leave them attached. That is how I designed the support attachments for the bridge parts.
The downside is, you have to do the design work.....
