Red Pegasus is really good. He has a website I can't recall the address, so you'll have to Google him. He did my 61 & 62 Ramchargers decals.

I sent that Redpegasus an email over a week ago and I have as yet to hear back. It was asking what format he needed for a quote on original artwork. You know,because I think we, as modelers, need some of these services more often, you'd think there would be more availible. I did a Google search for same and suprisingly, there are really not that many. I wish that modelers, as a group, could get some of these type services going, for modelers by modelers. I wish I could to do it myself, but I'm retired and funds are really tight. This economy is tough on us of age, but I digress. What I fantisize about are, decal, photo etching, chroming and realy good wheels and tires, services that are cheap and well made, without the spectre of coporate profit mentalities. I think this is getting away from me and turning into a RANT so I"ll stop. I hope you all get the real intent of where I was going!.

Do you have what you want, drawn out and scaled on an art program ? If so which one ?

I think so. My originals are made in AutoCAD 2000 can be either dxf. or dwg. or even stl. file extentions. Is this considered artwork program ?

Thanks but I din't have those softwares. I have a copy of Phot Shop 2007 but never learned how to use it. I guess I'll have to use my inkjet printer and make'em myself.

The thing is, that works fine if you are going to use them on something white, any other color and the decals will not work unless you have a white layer under them.

Is there still anyone out there that will print up a couple of custom water slide decals. I already have the artwork in hand it just needs to be sized (1/25 scale) and printed on water slide film.

Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

Joseph, this looks like a cool project. In order to get decals, you will need to take some good straight shots of each panel that you want to recreate. That would be a photo of the door, the quarter and the trunk lid. Once you have that, it becomes scaleable and someone can trace it for artwork.
