I've got Photoshop Elements. If I bought a sheet of Mirage 1/48 decals could I scan those in and then scale them up to the size of the Mirage. I think the model it is roughly 1/9th scale.
Thanks Kelvin, post some pictures of what you are talking about and what airbrush you have, I may be able to help. The trick to a fine line and the blending of colors as on the tail pipe is a double action airbrush.
On the decals the answer is yes, you can scan at a super high resolution and then mess with them a little in a paint program for printing. Decal quality varies a bit, but most of it should be pretty usable. I just pulled mine off the internet.
Thanks Trev, but did you really have the SEA idea before I did?
If you did, your plane should be done now!
awood, you could do this one, be a little easier, looks like it's all one color:
