How do you guys print your own decals? or you guys just paint them on? I always wondered how you guys make them look so good? Any help would be great.

I was speaking about the shipment to Lindinger. Was that also shipped by air?

About the decals: I have a mate with a computerized sticker plotter. It works perfect!

Updates:

Received: fans, motors, 7 channel receiver.
Waiting for: ESCs, servo extensions, batteries, Silk Span for covering and other misc stuff.
Researching: BEC vs A123 Battery pack. I like 10A CC BEC, I don't like fact that I need also buy USB Link to change its voltage to 6V. That's $40. I've heard CC cares about their customers. And their money...
Ongoing: Almost completed EDF test stand. Will try sickle fan today on 3S. Bought PETG and Styrene plastic to make cabin, servo covers and engine pod inlet rings.

My son's birthday this weekend. He will be three! Bunch of relatives in town. The build is going to be slow

Well I always select a livery from a particular airplane that I have flown with, or an airline I have flown with. Norwegian is a natural selection, and this particular aircraft features the famous Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, who lived here in Bergen, my hometown
