I've used quite a few different methods with decal instruments.
Usually i lay them behind thin acetate, paint the back of them white,
and cover with either a thin fabricated plastic console, a photoetch
console, or less successfully bezels directly on top of the acetate.
This last method reduces the depth of the instruments
