Axial prop Decal for Fokkers

I saw this thread and decided to post (my first!). I should think this would be a pretty commonly needed decal for WWI modelers. This is a jpeg... maybe one of you artists can transform it into a vector dwg

Talk about timely!

In order not to waste decal paper, I went back and re-did
my 1940 Tiger Moth set, this time using Barmonkey's splendid roundels, and some home-made Corel artwork,
As well as some that had posted in this thread. Credit to all, where due!I have been working a long time to get a pair of propeller logos, for a 1/7 scale display model, for a friend, and they don't take up much space, and I lost sight of my old faithful Pico, R2185, last Wednesday, hence the re-do.
I'm not quite done yet, and we are taking our Slow Sticks, (mine movie camera equipped), to fly an airborne search for R2185, (hope she landed yellow-side-up)!
Here's a PDF of the job, so far.

My 3Delight!

I bought this Hyperion from a friend of mine, and after removing all the ole clear tape and re-shrinking the covering, I couldnt help to notice the colors as I was drinking an ice cold refreshment

If any of you need quality graphics or a kit design, please feel free to PM me, I could use the work right now....

Thanks!

I just drew this one. Let me know if you need line weights or colors adjusted. Also, I don't know how fonts will come through. I used a True Type font [Arial Rounded MT Bold] in Freehand. Don't know what your software/machine will do with it.

**Edit** Tweaked the text a bit, switched fonts, tweaked shield.

**Edit** Added a scaled down version in AI format

Anybody building WWII Luftwaffe models?

If so, here are a few instruments, clockwise, from the upper left; Directional gyro-compass, with skid ball. Next is a clever German tachometer, suitable for single or twin engined planes. Co-axial needles saved panel space for another 80mm instrument. (Very important on planes like the HS-129, whose panel was so tiny that several of the engine gages were mounted on the inboard sides of the nacelles)! Also, it simplified logistics. Next is a manifold pressure gage, (engine supercharger boost pressure, in atmospheres). Then comes a 0 to 6 kilometer altimeter.
The little blue one is an oxygen blinker, to show the flyer that he is getting oxygen. Final one is a 0 to 3 kilometer altimeter, for the lower performance birds.
The gyro compass measures 4.75" wide by 5.25" high. Instrument bezels were standardized before the war, so the rest are same as U.S., 3.125" dia., and 2.25" dia.
If I'm wrong about my descriptions, feel free to correct them. Also, since this far from a full set, if anyone can provide additional "war trophies", bring 'em on!

RE custom made decals

If anyone needs any decals, I can make a decal from ANY image or text.

Most of my customers buy helmet decals, but I can do anything you need up to 8". To see some examples of my work, visit my web site at:
