For some reason, I have never ventured into this part of forum before. Your collection is a real treasure, I mean it.

Have you considered printing those red do not walk markers on clear decal paper?


Not much luck with clear decal with any printer that I have access to. I tried to print PRU with the stripes already on. Still a problem. Still working on it though.

I know what you mean, I only ever do it as a last resort. I have found a set of Mosquito decals in the stash which includes the walk markers which you are welcome to. I will have a go at printing a few off too if I can find my decal paper. We just got a new laser printer which I was going to try out for decal making.


Great project (most impressed with the Harrier).

Unrelated I know... but I was thinking of using inkjet decal printing sheet for the stencilled leather on a samurai (the main breastplate element would be c3x4 cm). Printing would be mono (black or dark brown), or perhaps two. The refs below show the idea.

I was also thinking of printing the motif for his clothing (eg a crane or something floral)

Having read these comments I'm now unsure how well this may work... any thoughts?

I have found some new decal film on Ebay. It was recommended by Alan Dent, who has had some great results with it.
