Question
cutting text/graphics from covering material

Hey,
Long time builder here, have researched all the "covering tutorials" I can find.
I need advice on what to use for letters in graphics.
I can do the multi color layers but I am up against a bunch of small letters.
In some cases I can print the emblem and cover the paper with clear monokote.
Some places that would look poorly done. Any one use press on letters?

You could look at the clear mailing labels. I bought a batch of the larger ones from Avery and use them in a color laser printer.

How about water slide decals? Not hard to do.

Any office supply store will carry Avery labels, and you can get them on-line. One warning: Printers don't print white, so you'll need to put white trim monokote, etc., under the decal (unless the plane is white, of course).

White base color on the plane. Think I'll go with the Avery full sheet label.
