An alternative to waterslide is clear or white full sheet label paper (self-sticking) for inkjet or laser printers available in office supply stores. Some people print out on photo paper and then glue on.

Here is another source for label paper.

After you stick them on your model, it is wise to cover them up with clear packing tape to keep the water out and make them hold up better as well.

Or spray a few coats of Krylon Crystal Clear over them.

Hi folks,

have a look at http://www.rc-network.de/magazin/art...4-0040-01.html
if you are not familiar with German, just scroll down and choose the desired country, I think it is self explaining.

If desired, there is a source to get your choice of decals made by a professional too...

Have fun, Josef

Just as info for the un-enlighted, the svastika was the "goodluck charm" and part of the family weapon of the Svedish Count von Rosen, who donated the first aeroplane to the Finnish airforce 06.03.1918. To honour the Count, the Finnish airforce used the now, in some groups a popular forehead tattoo, 'till a disoriented Austrian corporal decided to use it for his own purpouses...

Okay -- here are some more, resized and saved as jpg. I'm not happy with how the computer messes with my jpg files, so if anyone wants me to e-mail the original file to them, just PM me.

I'm still trying to figure out a way to get the PDF files done. The PDF files you are missing are:
tiger-shark.pdf
tigerdash.pdf
japan-kill.pdf
german-kill.pdf
b17art.pdf
