    Colour of decal paper

    Sorry I probably wasn’t being clear. That is the set I have and i want to enlarge them and print them out. Someone did do this for me but he said he’d not really done it before. The fuselage is already painted a dark grey colour and when the decal goes on the light grey lettering just doesn’t show up.

    Colour of decal paper

    Thanks for replies. my problem is is it’s the lettering and numbering on the side of the BAe Hawk 200 prototype that I need. It reads “HAWK 200” in light grey and then has another decal to go over it that is a black outline so not sure what to do.
  3. Hi all. Going to try and enlarge and print some decals I have but have never printed my own before. Looking at some decal paper there is an option for clear or white paper. Which one do I go for? Will clear be too translucent? If it white is used, does that show on any of the decal. And now I think about it, why do kit kit decals come on blue backing? Thanks

    Hawk 200

    Hi I would like to know if you would be able to print the needed decals to reproduce the hobbyboss kit as either of the two paint schemed prototype Hawk 200's. One was dark sea grey with medium sea grey undersides. This one is on a combat decals sheet but only comes in 1/72. The other was same aircraft but was repainted in an all black scheme. Thanks in advance. Stuart
  5. Yes to 1/144. I was thinking top of cabinet but was worried it being knocked off but may be best option. Will get the 747 out onto the desk Its the zvezda 747-8 and thinking the paint/decals might be tricky for me.
  6. Where does everyone keep their completed 747 builds? Got one in the stash that I'd like to do but no idea where I'd put it. Any ideas? Thanks
  7. Excellent, at last. I'd like after market decals to do one of the prototypes though in the Matt black finish. Where did you order yours from Mr B?
  8. It looks like it will have 3 options going on the other hawk kits. My guess would be along with the box art maybe the Matt black prototype and the McLaren scheme. Just a guess though.
  9. I had exactly the same problem a few years back with this kit. The colour call outs didn't seem to match the box art either. If you search this forum the thread might still be on here somewhere. Think I just made it up with the Akan paints I had.
  10. Thanks flanker man. I'm not too bothered about accurately depicting an accurate version of a particular flanker. Just wanted to build the kit out the box but was confused by the colours so a little relieved about your agreement with maybe doing a what if. I'll see what I can conjoure up.
  11. Thanks for help. Not sure what to do now. Follow these colours and ignore the fact that the canards are not the same, try and follow box art colours or just go with the flanker colours I've got and almost do a whif instead.
  12. Hi I am currently building the above mentioned kit and am not far from the painting stage. However, like the last flanker I built I am struggling to get my head around some of the colour call outs. I think I have the greys covered but for one of the main three camo colours it calls for a metallic black? Is that right, just sounds a bit odd to me. Google searches haven't helped much apart from showing me lots of pictures of the box art for said kit. Any help in what colours I should go for would be great. Thanks
  13. Hi there. How much for a set of these posted? I've had a revel 1/32 hawk in the stash for ages and as yet to find a scheme I want to finish it in. These could be the answer! Thanks Stuart
  14. Thanks for comments. Got real modellers block at the moment with a pair of half built Hawks on the desk
  15. C-17 flying nice and low over bordon and Whitehill and then confirmed by a mate it landed at farnborough about 4mins later. Anyone know why it was round these parts and at farnborough? Couldn't tell where it was from either.
