Decals for 1/12th scale Jets

Does anybody know where i can get decals for a 1/12th scale phantom? i was hoping to finish it as 56squadron based at RAF Wattisham.

Also, same question, but for a 1/12 scale Eurofighter. I have the freewing version, but i dont really want it in German Colours, any ideas on where i can find RAF Markings for one?

I know this is a longshot and im going to guess you will say to make my own, so if that is the case, any ideas on making them?

Thanks in advance

Pete

If you have an inket printer, you can make your own decals.

You will need some inkjet waterside decals. They come in clear and white.

I search the net for artwork or do my best at creating it on the PC. I use MS Powerpoint to assemble the images and take a guess at the correct size. Print some drafts on plain paper and hold them against the model, resize on the computer if necessary, re-print a draft to check, then print the final images to the decal sheets.

Allow the ink to dry overnight, then coat with a spray-on acrylic photo sealer (3 light coats, allowing to dry between coats).

Cut out images, soak in cool tap water, slide them on. Or you could get Callie to do a great job for you without the hassle of DIY.

A quick Google should find the decals and sealer in your locality.

Cheers,

Dan.
