Decals

I need some help, if anyone can (no plastic surgeons please) I've finished my Big Iron, but the old decal is past shot. I cant even make a good copy of it. Would anyone by chance have and old "Big Iron" decal they could copy and send me?

Scan what you have in as highest res. as possible. My wife does wonders on photoshop. Just post it here and will see what can be done.

Actually, right now we found a generic pistol and the correct font and have duplicated the decal quite well. I think its gonna work. Thanks anyway.

What's the latest progress report on the downsized Spit? I've not heard anything new about it in YEARS now.

All it lacks is paint. And the desire to get it done. Now that I've all but finished, thinking about flying it is a different animal. I really enjoyed building it, but just dont have much desire to fly it. I've got 40 hours now in a Cherokee, but find flying about as boring as a bus ride. The only fun to it is landing. Other than that you get no speed sensation, your in a hot, noisey cockpit, and its a major deal if you have to crap while in the air. I'm thinking about selling it the way it is.
