  1. Long time reader... first time poster... HELP!!! Has anyone had this happen before? I finished a Testors 1/72 B-66 Destroyer on August 30th last year, and about a month ago I noticed the decals were turning black! Since then, I've seen it get progressively worse. I don't harbor any hope of salvaging the model, I just don't want to have it happen again. There were a few "firsts" for me on this build, so there are a lot of variables. But, here is the sequence of paint and decals: Tamiya spray gloss black (base) Alclad Polished aluminum + Alclad aluminum Alclad
  2. Hello everyone, I've been working on the Polish MiG-21 MF kit from academy for a while now, and the time has come for me to put the decals in position. Considering the potential final result, I was both excited and also worried at the prospect of facing some issues with getting those long and thin decals to conform to the surface properly... Unfortunately, I am now facing some issues with the decals. More specifically, wrinkling issues (see below). Decals were applied on three layers of gloss (result probably closer to semi gloss TBH), and some micro set. I've already gon
  3. I recently purchased some sets of Peddinghaus 1/72 IDF Tank Markings decals , however they come with no instructions with positions on the vehicles, instructions on application but nothing on were they go ! I looked on the Peddinghaus site and they have no instructions either , thought it was strange to sell decal without positioning drawings . 72 1308 - M 48, M 48, M 51, Centurion, Centurion 72 2348 - M7, M4 A3, M 48, M 109, Merkava 1 EP 1309 - M 48, M 60 Thanks Syd
  4. Well obviously not the entire airline (I'll leave that to someone else), but some old aircraft models in 1/200 scale I came across going through some old stuff earlier today. They are all three showing signs of "fatigue" and a bit of wear and tear, but nothing that can't be fixed with some glue and a fresh layer of paint. Airbus A321 Boeing 767-300 DC 10-30 During my time with SAS is worked on all three aircraft types, so there is some degree of nostalgia involved. Luckily no
  5. Do you know what companies print silk screen decals?, I mean companies as Cartograph or Microscale that someone can send them that you can send them your designs with specifications and they can print them. I has been in contact with Cartograph and Microscale, but I'm looking for more options, because Cartograph is prettty good, but it takes a lot of time (and I mean months) before they finish with your project, and when I contacted Microscale, they send me a list of inks they use, and that's very limiting when one wants more colorful subjects as Asia or Africa, so I'm looking for more op
  6. I'm after a bit of help please...... I have ALWAYS been a huge fan of the Silk Cut Jaguar XJRs the quite magnificent (unless you lent him money) Tom Wilkinshaw built. I have very vague memories of the 1988 Le Mans win and especially the 1990, I visited the motor show at the NEC with my dad and was lucky enough to see the 90 winner there. I have various books acquired in recent years and various die cast models of these wonderful machines but always fancied building a detailed kit. A couple of years ago I found the 1:24 kit from Tamiya BUT was over £60 and
  7. Hi I recently bought a Second hand Raf Bomber command which comes with A Lancaster and the resupply set. It came without the decal sheet and while I was looking for a new one for the Lancaster which came with the stencils and I saw this one by Kit world. I have never heard of them before and I was wondering if the where good quality decals. The last decal set I bought disintegrated, so I want to make sure that this one won’t do this. I was also wondering if there is a decal sheet for the resupply vehicles.
  8. Hi, I'm building a 1/72 hasegawa/w special bomb A-1H also know as AD-6 skyraider and one of the decals have shreaded itself on application. Does anyone know where I might be able to find a replacement. This is the kit: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-bp104-a-1h-skyraider--138567
  9. I've just bought an Airfix Boeing 707 from Kingkit for the very reasonable price of £15 as I've wanted to make some classic airliners for a while now. What could be more classic than the 1960s Pan Am livery? However, what would be the best decals for this kit, and is the Airfix kit (old Skyking series with British Airways livery) suitable, or is it completely the wrong version of 707? I don't know much about airliners really so any help and info appreciated! Trying to get a TWA Constellation at some point too, having recently bought the Airfix Comet and Vanguard. Maybe
  10. I’m offering a service to BM members who want to recreate a specific model, but who can’t source the decals. If there’s a decal or a specific decal set that you want, and you can’t get them commercially, I’ll draw them for you. I’m thinking of images such as aircraft nose art, pilot’s personal insignia or regimental markings on military vehicles and so on. I can also redraw ones you might have with an old kit but which have yellowed or cracked or are otherwise unusable. I’ve been using Adobe illustrator and Photoshop for many years so I know my way around the programs r
  11. I don't really know which section to put this under, so I'm just going to put it in WIP Aircraft. They are decals for aircraft so this kinda makes sense? So...... Recently I've been building a 1/144 Trumpeter Vulcan and a 1/200 Cyberhobby/Dragon Vulcan and have come across a bit of a problem with decals for these. I wanted to do an anti flash white Vulcan with the trumpeter one, it doesn't come with decals for that scheme so off I went to browse around to find a nice aftermarket set and well.... No sets of pale roundels or fin flashes in that scale. There are decal sets with a lot
  12. Hi all Print Scale do attractive decals for Mig-17 without mentioning the exact variant they are destined for. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/PSL72008 Please any recommendations for a Mig-17 kit in 1/72 scale? In particular the Egyptian version? Are there any pics on the internet that will assist? Thanks in anticipation. M.M.
  13. I have the old Airfix Canberra B.2 and their newer B(I)6 in the stash in 1/48, I would like to build one from Wyton circa 1987. Ideally the TT18 with black and yellow stripes would look good in such a large scale, but I can't find the target pods in aftermarket, nor, perhaps surprisingly any 100 sqn tailfin markings. Are there any available, or is it relatively easy to scratch build the Rushton pods? Which of the Airfix Canberra kits would be best to convert to a TT18? If the pods/conversion prove difficult perhaps I could just do a 100 Sqn B2 instead, I be
  14. Hi Guys Here is a bumper set of new releases all in one go, available for ordering and shipping right now (well over the next few days) Basically a few stand alone decal sheets, to be used in conjunction with the kit decals, early F6F-5 fuselage windows, and a few F6F-5N conversion sets with decals. Before you all ask, yes I am working on the F6F-3 conversion, this will also be done with a few decal sheet options. Release date for the -3 ???????? next few months. Best to visit here to get all the information. https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/category/1
  15. The old 1/72 Academy P-51B has decals for Fred Glover's Rebel Queen. The girl on the fuselage has a red swimsuit, The name 'Rebel Queen' is in Olive Drab (which seems unlikely). This is how she is portrayed on my 1972 Scale Models plans, possibly where Academy got their info. But the much more recent Kits World decals give her a blue swimsuit. with 'Rebel Queen' in Red. Can anyone help with which one is right? I'm very tempted to buy the decals which look very nice, but they cost more than I paid for the kit, so it would be nice to know if they're correct!
  16. hi all! Would anyone know who to contact regarding custom decals? I’m planing on building Virgin’s Maiden Voyager 747-287B and I can’t seem to find any decals I could use or modify. Any advice would be grand! Thank you
  17. As the title says Im Looking for generic codes to do a Hurricane IIc from 336 squadron of the D.A.F. They look like this. As an alternative does anyone make decals for this IIc from a South African AF squadron ? Trying to find options for current Hurricane build. Thanks in advance ? Dennis
  18. Howdy, looking for reference and possibly the correct markings for the Norwegian P-3 involved with the collision over the Barents Sea back in 1987. I already have the Su-27 markings in a Begemot sheet. Thanks
  19. Hi all, I am looking for anyone who would print a set of serials for me in white. I have struggled to get a good looking application using minute lettering sets but I just cant get alignment correct. What I need is a very small set. It is lettering and numbering in Amarillo font, in white, with the overall length of each full serial being 6mm. My very small and my old hands and eyes just cant hack it! Any ideas? Thank you. Martin I put a few names here in case these or others have any idea - @Giorgio N @Terry1954 @bentwaters81tfw @spaddad @Cou
  20. So I recently bought Tamiyas’ X-35 semi-gloss clear , I applied decals onto my model and topped it off with mr mark softer , should I add a semi-gloss clear coat above the decals ? or are there any problems I might face? Are there any extended benefits?
  21. I am looking for some information and possibly recommendations. I have decided to undertake a task of large proportion whereby I will need a lot of bespoke, made to requirement decals. Having never done this before, I'm not conversant with what the capabilities are out there. Some of the questions I'm looking to have answered are below: Are there specialised decal companies that will produce mass orders to client requirements? Are there companies that will create 'nose art' decals from a rough black and white photo? If there ar
  22. Hello I am experimenting with decal printing and I found a small hitch regarding this particular aircraft, basically the nose art is depicting a sort of comic Bull (most probably from Private Snafu comics) punching at something, this I managed to get after a lot of work on photo shop, yet still some parts of the depiction are not clear, any help would be greatly appreciated
  23. Seeing as the my last request got some brilliant replies that let me score what I wanted in hours, here's the latest : Do any 1/72 decals exist/are about to exist for this? Maybe my Google-fu is weak today but I couldn't easily spot any in usual places. Cheers Anil
  24. Hello everyone. I`m looking to model USAF and IAF F-16 in 1/144 and have had no luck in finding a decal sheet of USAF tail codes. The ones I am after in particular are WA and AZ. Does anyone know if there is a sheet of generic letters available that could be used. I have had a good look but am having no luck. I am also looking for a scorpion tail decal in 1/144. Does anyone know of a place where I might find it, I can find a sheet of other SQN`s but not this particular one. Many thanks. https://cdn.jetphotos.com/full/6/70666_1541230267.jpg
