     I have a problem, and I hope that the forum can help.  I'm back in the hobby after a long break, and one of the things I'm catching up on is IMSA Mustangs and Camaros.  But the decals in the Mustang kits (Folgers, 7-Eleven, Motorcraft, etc.) are thick and inflexible, and the adhesive is this thick, grey-white, sticky nasty crud.  I haven't seen any aftermarket repops of these sheets. Can they be reproduced using the Testors kit for home copiers, or do I need to have the decal sheets sent out to a pro?  Thanks for your help, folks.

I think your only problem with copying the decals would be if any of them had white or metallic colors.  Current ink jet and laser printers can't duplicate these.  If you had an Alps printer you wouldn't have to worry.  If it's got white or metallics, it would be worth it to go with a pro.

Thanks, 'Goblin... so I'll be checking out the ads in Model Cars and other mags.  Wish me luck.
