Does anyone have a source of cast/moulded letters that they can recommend? I have the plastruct ones, but different fonts and sizes would be very helpful for all the manhole covers, access hatches etc that I make. Thanks for your suggestions.

There are also these etched brass alphabets in a couple sizes from Scale Link in England:

Also, was it Chuck Doan who sanded down segments of sprues that have raised numbers and sometimes letters to identify the sprue or individual parts?
