Hi,

Great job! Would like to know, how do you remove the old decal? How do you manage to fix up the the white word Fed at the tail wing? Is will be blue if your background is blue and the word are transparent...

Thank you.

Regards,

I remove the paint with acetone.

I used a white decal to print the FedEx (on the tail). I was able to match the color of the decal with the paint I used to airbrush the tail of the plane.

Hi Mingjim,

Thank you for taking time reply my questions. Here, I still have some questions.

1. What kind of decal are you using? Inkjet printer decal or Laser printer decal?
2. Where do you manage to buy these decals from?
3. How do you print the decal?

Once again, thank you very much.

Regards,

I think these might be the answers to your questions.

Q. What kind of decal are you using? Inkjet printer decal or Laser printer decal?

A. Inkjet paper. This depends upon your printer.

Q. Where do you manage to buy these decals from?

A. He makes them himself, and buys the paper from www.beldecal.com.

Q. How do you print the decal?

A. You make the decal and then print onto that paper, like a regular.

Hi alpha608,

Thank you for responding my questions. Here, I have questions again,

1. Do I need to spray a layer of clear onto the decal before I start to print?
2. If yes, what should I have? A gloss clear or matt clear? Gloss clear might be too smooth for printing... Will the ink get mix up?
3. After I have printed out the decal, do I need to spray another layer of clear? Which once should I use again? A gloss clear or matt clear?

Once again, thank you very much.

Regards,

I have never used this paper before, but from what I understand, you do not need to spray a clear coat before hand... just after. You want a gloss clear coat.
