Roundel Decals 1/32

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to know if some one can point me in the right direction to get waterslide roundel decals (about 13mm) for 1/32 cars. I don't need numbers as I have heaps but nothing to place them on.

roundels are easy to do if you don't want the border ring. Grab a sheet of white decal paper and then using any circular object and a sharp blade - cut them out. That way you can vary the size to suit the car. I have a circular cutting tool.

 

The decals on this car are done this way.

Brilliant idea and nice looking car there d-m, Fly I take it? Don't have one although I have 8 of the Pink Kar versions.

 

Is this the sort of stuff I should be looking for? - http://www.ebay.com/...LEAAOxylpNTRBd2 - or this? - http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-sheets-WHITE-INKJET-waterslide-decal-paper-for-model-cars-or-nail-decals-/171232347045?hash=item27de3e43a5:g:wwwAAOxyUylTRBQ5

Yeah but don't pay those shipping costs,

 

I am sure someone on here from NZ will be able to tell you where to get decal paper from cheaper than that.

 

I picked up one of these from the craft shop for less than $10

IN other discussions on here about decal paper people have recommended these places

 

Laser Printer

Not sure which work out best price. If you have a colour ink jet or laser printer it isn't too hard to print your own decals :)

 

 

oh and the Ferrari is a Carrera 1/24 :)

Interested in that circle cutter DM . Does the pivot point leave any sort of mark ?

The advantage with 1/24 for builders like yourself Bram is the great easy to get bodies for custom builds

Wish it was that good with the 1/32 scale stuff

Yes the circle cutter leaves a small pin hole in the decal paper,where the pivot goes, just like a compass.

I tried one many years ago, ended up making one from a small compass that worked better on small circles.

But I was only using it for cutting circles for masking rounders before painting.

These days I am lucky enough to be able to print white roundels.

:) Me to -I have a few now and I picked the Ferrari and a '62 Corvette up in a trade (thanks Paul) still searching for the blue #2 Corvette Grand Sport

 

I have been running them at a couple of mates places - the Carrera cars are a lot of fun. We run them at 18v they are a bit like NC1 cars to run - not super fast but close runners

 

As Phil mentioned the circle cutter leaves a pin hole - but you can't really see it on the door of the Ferrari? It either disappears when you apply the decal or I put a dot of white paint or liquid paper over it (use a toothpick to apply) once the clear coat goes over it isn't that noticeable. As Phil mentioned you could fashion one from a compass and an exacto blade.

 

cheers

Yes the 2nd one all blue #2 - not paying those dollars though :) especially as the postage will probably require me to mortgage the house.

 

I have located one of the white ones - still hunting for a blue one before I think about jumping on the white one.

 

cheers

Roundels all sorted thanks to dangermouse for the idea and Mondeoman for pointing out a local supplier in Tauranga
