Why can't I find decals stateside?

Every time I search for decals, I almost always find some overseas, but never anything stateside (except for some tobacco F1 decals). I'm trying to convert a couple of the 333Sps I have to full race livery, and there isn't anyone in North America (that's searchable online) that seems to carry anything. I guess I'll go ahead and order some BBR decals from somewhere. :ranting :ranting

In reference to your 333SP, I believe that Louis:



is your man. He has done the conversion before, and gave me the link to the company that provided the decals, but I can't find it right now. PM him, and he should be able to set you on the right path :cheers :cheers

I noticed the Momo car on his website before, actually. I did fine this website Spot Model that carries the Momo, Scandia, and Lista decals for the 333SP. (They also have the 550GT Prodrive kit at a relatively decent price, too.) I'd still like to get them on this side of the pond, if I could, though.
I know that he mentioned that there was more to be done to the car than the graphics....modifications to the headlights and other customizations were required to transform what I have as a base Hot Wheels 333 to what you want it to be. PM him and I'm sure that he will help in anyway possible :cheers :cheers

Thanks for the heads up. According to the pics I have, the air splitter/headlights need to be modified. The big kicker is the vents on the fenders, which car #3 doesn't have. The mirrors are also different. Here's another 333SP I'd like to do, rather than just a "plain" red one.

That is sweet.......if you do that one, please let us know how to replicate it :cheers

It costs $12 delivered for 1 sheet and took 2 weeks to get to Ohio from Australia. They have 4 versions of the 333SP racing decals. You have to ask for the 1/18 versions.

Cool! Thanks a million! They've got a ton of useful stuff there! :cheers :cheers
Scott S...can ALL these decals be ordered in 1/18th? If so, I see some sheets being oredered for a couple 69 T/A Mustangs and maybe a 550.

According to the text on the page, all are also available in 1:18.

All the decals are now also available in 1/18 scale at twice the amount shown for the 1/24 decal (Australian Residents must add 10% GST). Please specify the scale when ordering.
The owner of the site is quick to answer emails(at least within 24 hours given the time difference). Make sure you ask for the prices in USD, as the prices on the site are in Australian dollars.

I have yet to find a steady source of decals. I have a few projects that I need to finish but lack the proper decals to do so. :crying

This is beginning to sound mroe and more like a side business I should be starting. It gets frustrating not being able to find something which seems like it should be more readily available. To have to order from Spain/Australia/Mars is unacceptable!
I know you can get the Momo decal set from Replicarz but I am unsure about the others.

I would be one of your repeat customers :happy

I bought some decal sheets today. I'll be attempting some carbon fibre patterns tomorrow. I'll work on that type of stuff first. Once I get what I feel is a good decal, I'll borrow someone's camera to get some quick pics. I'd gladly send some sheets out to some folks to try out.

Once I can post some pics (how long have I been saying that?), you can PM me for some free samples! :cheers
G
I'll but some of the carbon fibre off you. I need a piece to cover the wing on a 996 GT2 :feedback

As soon as I get a quality pattern replicated, I'll let you know. I've got nothing better to do tomorrow. :lol
