      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Im looking for a site that show me how to make license plates for the models, but i cant find even tips on how to make them, i have the model of the license plate already, but my problem is the size, when i put the size to match the scale, the license plate become small an looks in scale but the letters change and its looks awful, the letters cant be read, i dont know if its the program that i use to edit the images(photosuite8.06) so if you know some tips, of the programs or the process on how to make them it'll be great thanks .......MADE007

The few license tags I have printed were from large images, and scaled down by changing the printer settings instead of the image size. You'll probably have to try a few different settings before you get the right size, but it's not difficult to do. If you have a good quality printer, you shouldn't lose any detail.

What did you have to change and how do you do it? I also would like to make plates but need instructions on how to do it. If you would share what you found out that would be greatly appreciated

Go to the printer properties, and choose the best quality there is, you can download pics of license plates and put them to scale with a photo editing program or you can scan a license plate of a decal sheet from a model
