    Do remember to seal(clear varnish or lacquer) over the vinyl decals or they will not last long in water. Happy New Year to everyone.

    Thanks Dave, a friend is a printer and he cut the letters out in vinyl now I've got the measurements. I prefer vinyl to waterslide decals, they seem to last forever.

    If you have a vinyl cutter you can produce the letters using white vinyl and just stick them onto your model or produce a stencil and use white paint.

    This is what I found when Googling how to print in white.
    Not very helpfull as it would be very expensive if thats all you wanted one for.

    White Ink Printer, The Xerox C8000W
    by Adam Whitehead12 March 20210179
    Xerox C8000W White Toner Printer
    The Xerox VersaLink C8000W is a white ink printer, capable of printing media up to A3.

    Printing in white helps you to add a punch to your prints on all types of media from colour paper to darker card and even some transfer sheets. However, there is not currently a white Inkjet printer available, they are all Laser.

    When I was trying to find the size of the raf rondle on my raf seaplane tender I discovered the prototypes varied enormously depending on the artistic ability of the docky painting it

    The only way I've found Doug, is to use white decal paper, and make a background colour the same (as near as you can match it using colour editor) to the model, (ie in this case make the background colour black and trim the decal as closely as possible. (eg,- as done on my 78 Graupner Cub repro and BD6)

    Hi Rossiter,
    (Leonard?๐Ÿ˜‰)
    According to the specs the lettering is 2'6" high on the original.
    So 1 7/8" at 1:16.
    BTW: How do you print white? Many of us would like to know that!!
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
