OK, put some of the decals into one of the gear bays last night.


Conclusion they're too big, too bold and I should have put them in at an angle to the stringers, not parallel to them.  That said, they look quite good (and a lot better in real life than in macro). The decals were printed on basic clear decal film, with a generic inkjet cartridge in a Canon Pixma iP4000. Left to dry for a day and then given several (say 5) light coats of Games Workshop 'Purity Seal'. They behaved quite well no runs (even with application of Mr Mark Softener).


I see a couple still need a bit of attention, but the experiment seems a success. They really do, however, need a proper decal company to do a set...
