White decals.

Recommended Posts

Only if you have an ALPS  printer

Which are now rather scarce and spares almost impossible to get

I've made white decals with my inkjet printer, and no special inks!

Below is an example. The roundels were from the kit, but the other white and colour markings are all printed on my inkjet. Rather than printing the white, I printed the other colours on white decal paper and printed a small black border around them to match the model background colour. The decal was then cut out and applied. Any remaining white edges from the trimming were touched in with thinned paint and a small brush before a final gloss or matt coat.

Decal required is of small lettering, so this wont work.
