Where to get decals?


Where can I buy decals for my airplane. I like military planes so I'm looking for big stars, numbers, maybe a flying tiger mouth. Things like that. Anybody got leads?
Also, is there a decent way to do it in a good inkjet printer?

Thanks

MIKE

I make my own decals with my computer/printer. I use Avery brand mailing lables. Any office supply store should have a wide selections of sizes, including full page sheets. The lable material isn't totally clear, it is translucent like scotch tape but if you trim the decal close to the design it doesn't show. Once you've printed your decal you must waterproof it. You can use either clear tape or a light coat of clear spray paint.

Great idea! Have any links to websites that have good graphics to copy and save? Or do you make your own with MS Paint or similar?

Thanks

This has been asked before. You can find many answers and multiple links to companies that sell the decal maling paper. http://www.ezonemag.com/disc/Forum4/HTML/000039.html

There is a place in Miami, Bel Inc., that sells blank water slide decal paper for inkjet printers and laser printers. This is great way to make your own. I have played with this paper in the past and they work great! Print your images on this paper, coat it with a clear lacquer or special coating this company sells, and you have it! Then you can waterslide transfer to your plane. If you have a tendency to spill fuel on your plane, you may have to spray over the decal once it is on the plane. The decal is transparant except for the image you printed. Follow this link to Bel Inc: http://www.beldecal.com/decals.cfm
