Default Custom Decals from Parkes682Decals

Hi All
Well im Paul from Birmingham,England and in my sparetime at evenings and weekends if i am not modelling i make custom decals.
They are inkjet printed on 3 Epson A4 printers.two colour and a new development a white inkjet printer.I have been developing this new technogly for about a year now,seeing as Alps printer will be finished in about 5 years or sooner.Ive been making decals since 1982 with my first a DC-3 Dakota.
I also own a 1:12 scale Thrust2 scratchbuilt model of the land speed record holder which made the decals for in Trim Film.
I make decals on Experts Choice Clear Decal film using JPNL inks (because they are thicker and better for decals) and now the new white ink.
Over the next few weeks i will be posting photos of the decals that i have made for modellers all over the world.
So if you want a quote for some decals or help with decals,post me message
and i try and answer them.
Paul

I have some decals made by Paul given to me by a modeler and they look great. I still like the Baron Richthofen red Eurofighter you custom made. Very cool!

yep, that's very interesting...i've got project too....a special Prowler scheme...
the problem is:
- what kind of pics did you need ?
- price for an A4 sheet, surely depending of the hours passed for the project ?
- an A4 sheet is pretty big for an " alone" project.....
- question at the guys who have worked with those decals, how is it with a coat of varnish ? and decal solution ? hair dryer ?
many thanks
pat

Well its printed on to Experts Choice decal film,i use JPNL Inks then they are laquered with a acrlylic laquer and you put them on in warm water with Micro Sol to soften them
Does this answer your questions

Couple of questions:

First, has anyone here used decals made with this white ink, and if so how do they perform (opacity, etc)?

Second, what drawing program do you use? I have several subjects that I'd like to have decals made for that I've already done the artwork for, with the colors separated in individual layers in the file. Is it a requirement that the whole image be printed at once or do you make multiple passes for the individual colors?

Hi Joe
I have these decals and they are a solid white you cannot see through them
have a look on Britmodeller.com,look in section Parkes682Decals it should be top thread white inkjet printer.
Any program works with it,the printer has 4 white cartridges and can only print white.Any other colours needed go on the next layer of decal sheet on top and then postioned over the first white decals,simple
Hope this helps
Paul

Hi Paul, I have a question:
When I order a custom decal from you, it have to be letter size, or it can be any size??
I have a Mirage IIIS in mind and the decal should be very small, but taking advantage of the white ink on the Swiss roundel.

Hi there
It can be any size,i can print down to .5 mm (half a millimeter) in both black/colour or white inks all i need is some sizes of the finished decal (height x width) so i can draw a box and the decal fits into the box.Simple.
Hope this helps
Paul
