Looks great. Who does the name plate. Is it brass with decals or engraved?
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Thanks for comments.
The nameplate is neither! I write it myself on the computer. Then I print it onto glossy, self adhesive film. This is then stuck on gold card from a greetings card shop and cut out. I stick it on the wood border using double-sided tape!

That is interesting. It really looks nice and sets off everything well. Great idea and inexpensive to boot.
