Hi Hubert,

Well I found and scanned my decals but the button to upload pictures here is not appearing for me for some unusual reason. So tell me if this link works for you:

Many thanks, Brady!

That's exactly what I needed, just perfect :).

 

And thanks for all comments Mates, highly appreciated.

Not a problem other than the posting part Hubert. So what's your plan, to take the picture and enlarge it to 1/32 scale and print your own decals?

Cheers,
Brady

Exactly, first will have to remove the blue background, but this should be rather easy.

Have already some experience with printing decals, so I'm quite optimistic :)

Those look nice Hubert,

 

I may have to ask you to do part of this same sheet for me in 1/32 if you don't mind. I've considered submitting them to Kits World decals as a future subject too. I really want to do the captured Zeros on this sheet. But I don't want to only have the option to only build them in 1/72 scale. I'd like to use the Tamiya 1/32 Zero kits for these projects. It's good to hear that my scan will work for you.

 

Cheers,

Brady

Sure, Brady - will send you a copy when it's done.

Hope to find some time for that within next few days...

 

Best regards

Hubert

Interesting, the word Raccoon is misspelled on the actual plane (Raccon) but not misspelled on the decals, although removing one of the o's shouldn't be an issue.

Haven't noticed earlier, that there may be such a doubt, interesting indeed.

Giving the inscription a bit closer look, I think however, that it is rather "RACOON" than "RACCON":

Maybe dirt, maybe chipped paint makes that O look a bit like C? But I think, that the most important is the width of the letter: C seems to be wider than the first O, which seems also to be more "closed" on the right side, than the C, and that's why I will keep with RACOON. 

 

Thanks for comment, best regards

Hubert

Hi, All

 

A small update. Started to paint the markings on the tail, used Gunze's Thundirbirds white/blue/red, the blue is a bit on the dark side, but I think it's rather a matter of photos, n reality looks a little brighter.
Surfaces covered with canvas have been painted with IJA Grey and masked.

I'm still wondering, what colour was that dark rectangle behind the exhaust stacks? Black, or maybe just the remains of IJA Green? First I have sprayed it black, but now I think green is more probable.
 
The clear decal sheets for ink-jet printer and Micro Liquid Decal Film have just arrived, so hope to move the works on the markings forward soon. So far have been using a laser printer, but decided to try something different.

 

Best regards

Hubert

Hi Hubert,

 

Here's at least one more shot of Racoon Special:

I'm not sure if this shot is Racoon Special 100% or not:

Enjoy!
