Scale I Build

  1. Hey guys, I'm just wondering what is the best carbon fiber decals? I've heard of studio 27 and scale motor sport just wondering which are better. Thanks for any help.
  2. I'm building the c.2000 Street Machine version of the ol' Monogram 1971 'Cuda for my girlfriend . Painted FM3 Moulin Rouge (came out quite nice) with SRX9 interior . I applied the white Billboard decals ; approached it with much apprehension due to the age of the decals . I test-ran the "HEMI" windscreen banner on a piece of painted scrap plastic ; came out nicely ( too bad that the China-made decals don't last for 20 years ! ) , even with the setting solution . Then I applied the V6W stripes ( a tiny bit of hand soap and water on the body ; warm water to release the decals ) then
  3. Scale Motorsport is one of the leading aftermarket companies for the last 20 years, offering the finest carbon fiber decals, upgrade kits, and useful tools. For the past year, we have carried a limited selection of Scale Motorsport products at shows, but did not offer them online. That has changed for 2019! ScaleProShop.com now offers a selection of Scale Motorsport carbon fiber decals, wheels, and seat belt sets on our store, and hope to grow this inventory this year to include even more of their products. Here's a sample of what's on the site!
  4. I was planning on creating the box art version of the kit. Does anyone know if the white stripe and star decals are opaque enough to prevent the base blue and red colors from bleeding through? Thx in advance, Joe
  5. Hi. Is there decals for hoses and stuff to detail up engine rooms? Some hoses like the radiator or hoses for the heater often have white writing / numbers on it. Maby stuff for battery,radiator "warning hot" etc. Tip where to get are appriciated.
  6. I am working on a project it's a Shelby series 1. I tried to apply a couple of the kit decals and they basically disintegrated before they even let loose of the backing paper. I figure that these decals are just old and what ever magic makes them work disappeared a long time ago. Now I am looking for some generic under hood decals. Or a reproduction of the original set. Anybody have suggestions?
  7. Does anyone have a Rusty Wallace #27 Kodiak hood decal ? I would hate to have to buy a whole sheet just for one decal. I have a hood. I think when i was cleaning out my stash lately i think i threw the hood away with spare parts. This is all I need to finish Rusty´s championship ride. It really turned out nice otherwise. One of the best ive done and its all i need to finish it. Help would greatly be appreciated on this. Thanks
  8. As decals age, they get that gold-ish color on the clear portions and become brittle and flake off sometimes. Has anyone here used clear over the decals and had any problems with it? I'm wondering if there have been chemical reactions or anything like that.
  9. I've been doing this ever since I was a kid. Decalling can be very stressful and very overwhelming to many. You spend countless hours honing your skills and building a kit you are "Hoover Dam" proud of. Everything has gone great or you have been able to correct any problem you have had. Then comes the dreaded decal laying. Sometimes they never get done and we make ourselves feel better by convincing ourselves the build look fine without them. Or we put the kit aside with great intention to work up the courage to do them. Sometimes they never get done. So you've gone and said to yourself "Hoo
  10. hello to all,,,, lately I have had problem's with some of newer issue Round2 decal sheets.....that is to say, when some are removed from the sealed bag they are packed in, the yellow backing paper is stuck to the sheet in some case's, thus pulling the coating from some image's and leaving chip's or ' pock' mark's on most decal's.. ..I find that it happens when you open a kit that may have been in stock for a period of time, where brand new issue's that are opened and checked seem to be just fine. It seems the longer the sheet is sealed in the cello, with the backing paper pressed into it, wit
  11. ...thought I would share something that just moments ago came in an email to me.......Billy Gooche told me that his family no longer wants to bother with the decal business, and he cannot manage it alone for health reasons. he also said a friend was looking into possibly taking over, but that's just a maybe.....so, its now shut down and the reason so many of us have had no contact with Gooche for months now........just thought I'd spread the unfortunate news.......the Ace........
  12. I recently had an issue with a couple of aftermarket decal sheets that I've had for years and just recently wanted to use. First let me say that I store my decals the way they always tell you is the right way. They are kept in the original packaging, inside sleeves, in a loose leaf binder, in my work room which is inside the house. So it's not humid, not too hot, not too cold, etc. etc. It's possible that the sheets in question (and I'm not going to mention any brand names) were around 20 years old, always stored as described above. When I tried to use them just recently they proved to be ver
  13. Not too long ago someone was looking for the source of an old decal - a witch doctor holding a big hypodermic needle with the word "Injecter" (sic). Did a search but couldn't find the original post. Well, in one of my eBay searches I ran across this in a '61 Ranchero (not the Styline kit): Is this the one?
  14. I have noticed so many interiors on models, and the largest percentage of them have detailed gauges on the dash. I was wondering where is the best place to get decals for dashboards?
  15. Hello. Is there anyone who create decals from customers wish? Searching for someone who can make scripts,or in this case replace scripts who where never there.
  16. I'm trying to build the revell 69 camaro z-28 using the white decals. After applying them, I realize that they are too transparent and show the color underneath. Are there any aftermarket decals available that are more opaque? Maybe I add another set on top?
  17. Whoa , this blew my brain up... I http://blogs.hotrod.com/monograms-badman-1955-chevy-gasser-comes-alive-at-sema-2013-94171.html
  18. I just finished designing the artwork for the 1st two in a series of all new decal sheets that will be available from Model King. These are going to be high quality silk screened printed decals printed right here in the USA. They are being printed by the same vendor who makes the Gopher Racing Decals so if you have seen those, these they will be similar in quality. The 1st sheet going to press is for the new Revell '90 Mustang LX. The 2nd sheet will be a set of fictional drag car graphics. The drag cars sheet is geared towards the Pro-Stock / Pro Mod / Slot Car crowd but could have other u
  19. I've been trying to find out the best (or most widely used) process of applying decals to tires so that they last and don't 'silver skin'. I'd like to get feedback from the members on their way of applying tire decals.
  20. Where do i find decals for the the 1970 Plymouth Cuda? These are the one i`m searching for (see picture)
  21. Can anyone help me with instructions on installion tiny decals? I have destroyed a couple because they are so fragile.
  22. Does anyone make decals to do Carl Caspers Galloping Ghost fe Dragster?
  23. " Decal Fixative Alternative " Something for those of you interested in making your own Custom Decals------------------ “Decal Fixative Alternative” For coating my Decal sheets as they emerge from the printer I've tried lots of products with good to excellent results. I started out using cheap Painters Place Enamel #20014 in the aerosol can from the spray paint department at WalMart. It wasn't bad and only cost 90 cents. Then I used Duplicolor Clear Lacquer DAL #1695 also in an 11 oz. aerosol can from AutoZone. This was a better product that dried much quicker and thinner
  24. 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.
