    Default Anyone Have a Good Pic/Font For Maadi Arabic Selector Markings?

    I'm in the process of rebuilding my Egyptian Maadi. At the time, I was in a rush to get it up and running, and it was a cheap kit, so I did a screw build. Other than the screws, it turned out way too nice. The more I look at it, the more I realized that I need to rebuild it on a new blank, and try to make it purdy. All is going well, and now I find myself trying to find the proper Arabic selector markings, so that I can get a stencil made. Then I can do the saltwater etching on there. Help!! LOL. I can't seem to find the marking, at least not clear. I'd love to actually find a site that I can pull the font from, and feed it straight into my stencil printer/cutter. Thanks in advance!!

    OK, great pics with dimensions, but what do those symbols mean in English? Are they words, or just individual letters? I have a friend at work trying to help me come up with an Arabic font in True Type Font, with the proper dimensions and all, but we aren't sure what it says. Where the Polish would have the letter "C" for full auto, and "P" for the semi position, are the Maddi markings the symbols for the letters, or are the symbols complete words as in "Full Auto" and "Semi auto"? Thanks!!

    If I'm not mistaken this was brought up here before a couple years back, check the archives. And I'd seen blanks offed up before with Arabic markings already done,,don't ask me just where I saw them but there out there,,somewhere!!! Brain farts ya know, with all this interweb info available nowadays it's hard to keep track of everything!!!
