MB,
Your password has been reset. But you need to send me an email and I'll reply with your new password.

So how do you make these decals? Are there special decal papers that you can buy to print on?

I got a good deal on a second 1:18 Cripes a' Mighty & I'm looking to repaint it with a different paint scheme. Do you know where you can pick up some 1:18 decals for the 352nd?

Item number: 7609186008 ebay clear and white decal paper cheeps as chips :D

cheers Todd i will email you for the password

decals

main pionts

after you have got your artwork ready to print and have done a test to see if it all works get your decal paper and set printer options to high and slow speed photo glossy paper,this will give you a good image on the paper, after the ink has dryed you need to aply a few thin coats of varnish using a spray can laquor or airbrush clear coat but not a brush to the decal paper. after you have done this you can use the decals as normal, you need to be a bit more careful with them, the main thing to do is to cut as close to the decals as possible cos the varnish layers you've done will be a bit more visible than a normal decal, watch that you dont cut so close to the decals the ink will run............

i havnt tested the set and sol decal solution on these yet so i dont know if that will work.

hannants sell the decal paper for nearly 3 times what you can get the same paper for on ebay..........

cheers todd hope this helps
