    Edit: Actually, 4D have it ex stock.


    Not sure if it's as small as 0.5mm, but it's in that range.

    What I originally said was:

    It's going to be reasonably tricky to get it in that scale unless you're willing to pay to have it etched into brass. The only stuff I've ever seen done in that scale was made like that.

    4D Modelshop will do it from your artwork - just draw it up in Photoshop and send it off to them. Of course, you can also choose to have it made in exactly the size panels you need, by that method, and you can choose to have half-depth etching, and so on.

    It isn't impossibly expensive.
