I carefully stripped the continental decals off with some non acetone nail polish remover, then simply added the decals! Worked like a charm. I've done several other models the same way!

What brand of nail polish remover did you use and where did you get the decal?

I just used a local grocery store brand. An easier way I just figured out with great results is getting baking soda wet and rubbing the logos off with a paper towel dipped in the wet baking soda! The decals were from V1 Decals.

Cool, but it needs winglets to be accurate.

I am working on finding that CO 757-200 from Hogan for that very reason . Once I get that one, Ill convert it too and change the reg. to one that doesn't have winglets.

Good luck finding one, I had a heck of a time finding one last year.

I would never desecrate my Hogan CO 757-200w that I got off of Amazon back in 2008

Also, no need to change the reg on the replacement model(N19136) since there was a time when it didnt have winglets

That's a good call too! It does take a while to do the conversion. Could just add the winglet-less one to my small CO collection.
