I decided I don't want to wait forever for someone to release decals for Italian typhoons, since the marking are all monochromatic (probably black) I thought I may have a go at trying to design and print them myself.
I spent a little time online and I got plenty of good close-up pictures taken from an almost perpendicular angle.
So no I need to find a program that will allow me to create a layer over the jpg where I can draw the decal by following the pattern on the picture, and then allow me to scale to the right proportions.
I friend of mine suggested Inkscape, I downloaded it, but I have to admit I don't know where to start.
Inkscape manual is very extensive and I didn't find the section that apply to what I want to do.
So I need tips and suggestion from everyone that tried to do something similar in the past, and hopefully succeeded 8-)
What program do you think is the most suitable, could you please point me to a tutorial for tracing over a picture and saving the resultant layer without the picture? Any other advice to avoid obvious pitfalls that are not yet obvious to me is gladly received.
Cheers and thanks
