    Hi Rob, I've found some good logos etc on line, and have found that if you have a super clear photo of an object or logo, it will come out perfectly. I get my paper from Decal Paper.com.au, they specialise in printing, sublimation etc and have a very good range and pricing. I've made quite a few of my own as well,- mainly decals which are no longer available, such as the 70s Graupner decals on my repro Graupner Piper Cub. I need a better drawing/art program, as 'Paint' is a bit limiting. Took about 5 hours to 'remove' the Tuatara on the airboat from its' background colour on the original art work, but it was worth it in the end. A better program might have been easier.

    Hi Doug.
    I did post the PDF graphics sheet for the life raft containers decals right at the start of this thread and they are in a variety of sizes too πŸ˜€.

    Much appreciated Rob, will let you know when I have received them, and on how I get on, I'm going to print them on my colour laser and see if they come out OK.

    Cheers, Pete😊

    Hi JB.
    The decals are reasonably easy to generate from freely available logos and images on the web and I am usually able to generate any that I can't find.
    I use Adobe Illustrator which makes the job quite easy πŸ˜€.
    I print my decals on paper that I get from 'Mr.Decalpaper' on either clear or white background sheets using a Canon MG5750 printer and the results are exceptionally good.
    Rob.

    Looks excellent Rob, really brings them up. It's great what you can do with a printer and a piece of paper these days, (where was this years ago!?) Gone are the days of tiny paint brushes and magnifying headbands. These sorts of decals were only mainly available with kits or set sized sheets, and most didn't last long before they disintegrated,- being very thin material.

    This modern material is way better, and makes it possible to do whatever your printer can print. Makes models much more realistic, and as you said, can add 'bling' to an otherwise plain object. I've found it indispensable for my R/C planes (and boats to a lesser degree).
