This was a "born out of desperation" - idea.

In my eagerness to finish the tank of the Pfalz D.IIIa as quickly as possible, I have filed down the instrument bezel.
It was weekend and etched bezels are not available.

A drill, a small file, some sand paper, a Resin saw, glue and a little bit "brass" paint - done.
