Have you tried DRAW? I believe that they can reproduce just about anything...

Serious? That seems kind of BS to me. Do you have a photo of what you're looking to reproduce? As long as you can get a clear, hi-res image then anything can be custom made. Someone isn't being honest with you.....

I was thinking that myself, especially as one has a current first choice set in silk screen (1:144) but can’t rescale or help me out.

Lemme see what I can come up with. If all you need are the logos, titles and such, then Maybe I can Put together something for you digitally, and then you can go to a local print shop to have it made up for you.

Okay, after some hours of digging around and being creative, I've come up with something that might work for you.

What you will need to do is make a few quick prints using your printer, and tweak the size of each print until it's the exact size that works for you. Once you have the size dialed-in, you can get some inkjet decal paper (they actually do sell it) or go to a printer service that can offer you a print on possibly vinyl or another substrate that is durable.

I hope this gets you to where you want to go.

Cheers.

You the man DC-10 Tony! Nice of you to help a fellow collector. Does he need to clear the decal sheet before using re Inkjet so colors don't run?

Not if the decal sheet is designed for the type of printer he is using.

I did a little searching, and this looks about right for this application.

If you are using a clear decal paper suitable fo an inkjet printer you will need to seal the print with an acrylic gloss varnish in a spray form.
