Does any body make these or something comparable? I would like to put appropriate labels on my models fire suppression bottles. It bothers me that they are all red with no labels.
Thanks.

I'm a kid at heart, so I will play with any model construction vehicle from 1:87 scale to 1:1 scale!!!!

For those who care:
After a failed attempt at getting custom decals made (I couldn't find a file big enough on the internet to get clear and sharp enough result). I finally found some decals that will work. I think the overall result is a fantastic improvement over the plain red bottles:

Thanks so much. I got them on eBay:

1/16 works well for the larger bottles and 1/48 for the smaller ones...

They look very good and add realism to the overall model. It is definitely the little details that make the biggest difference.
