Scraping the sprue numbers with a thin razor blade

I know, it's really boring, but that's the only way I think

What do they need to say? Are they for casting or for a sign? I've used old credit cards for casting letters and numbers on a 1/24 M60A1, and sourced other off of cast automotive parts, radios, you name it...

It looks like you can order direct from Slaters. (I've always picked them up in hobby shops and shows...)
