Thanks guys, I am finding much of the fun in building is learning new skills. I had an idea of what I wanted on the tail but then, how to do it?
I used Papilio clear inkjet waterslide paper to print the decal (you can get a sample page shipped for about $3.50 ( http://www.texascraft.com/hps/catalo...p-1-c-250.html )
After printing I coated it with a clear-coat to waterproof the ink, cut it out, dropped it in some water and slid it onto the tail. Unfortunately the edges started to curl up so I left a flat ruler on the decal for an hour so that the edges would stick. Now I just need to get some fuel-proof clear to protect it.
For the graphics I used Photoshop Elements 8. I typed the top text using the Text tool, then right-clicked and selected "Warp Text" then "Arc Upper" with max bend and lots of vertical distortion. Then Arc lower for the bottom text. Unfortunately, it didn't end up as a passable circle so I selected all and pasted to a new blank file, this allowed me to adjust the aspect ratio and get it looking pretty good.
Here is a blank if anyone wants to use it.
