Pattern #1 successful, although I'm sure that as I keep progressing, the decals will get a little bit better. I have what to me at least is a good carbon fibre pattern for 1:18. The first couple I did were a little large to be in scale (glad I found that decal paper at WalMart!). As it is, once I get it perfected, spending $5 for 6 8.5 x 5.5 sheets of waterslide paper will be a lot cheaper than spending $7-$10 for ONE sheet.

Now I just need to figure out how to get sponsor decals to be crystal clear when I reduce the size. My graphics ability is somewhat limited. Sigh.

Thanks for the ideas. I'll just tool around with some graphics programs for a bit. I need to get the images sharp on my PC before I even think of printing them.

I can't wait til I get the hang of this, though. I've already got visions of 348, 355, 360 Challenge cars dancing in my head. Or 250LMs, 250TRs, 250GTOs, 333SPs, 330P4s...oh man, am I ever opening a can of worms.

I learned an important thing tonight. Don't place a glass of water and an excited dog anywhere in the vicinity of decals, especially before you have not had the chance to spray the bonder over the ink. Now one of my sheets looks like some crappy Rorschach ink blot. :scared
