The only reason I use the Testors sheets is because they are readily available at Hobby Lobby and with a 40% off coupon they are not to expensive.They are however pretty hard to work with . That is why i put multiple images on the sheets. If I mess up I don't have to print a whole new sheet. If you build a white car you can use clear sheets and you don't have to cut the image out exactly on its edge.

Just to show the difference between a 1:24 scale decal and a 1:25 I found an old goodyear decal from a 1:24 scale sheet and put it above the goodyear decal that I will use that came in the amt snap kit I am using to build this model. Pretty big difference.

An enterprising decal maker that does 1:24 scale decals could reduce his sheets and print them as 1:25 scale. He could offer both sizes to his customers.

Finished decaling today. All I lack is installing the roof antenas and sealing the decals with future this Thursday. After that I will take the final pictures and call this one done.

The decals turned out pretty good but the bleed through is pretty bad even though they are white sheet decals. I have decided to print three more sheets and do another layer to improve on the bleed through problem.
