If you are looking to make your own decals www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk, have a both clear and white water slide type paper, which I have used.
I have used the clear version of the paper on the attached shell. This was my first attempt at trying this, the decals went on the inside of the shell and were painted over on the inside to seal them in.

Thanks for the information. Question would you recommend this paper for RC model airplanes. Do you think the image would stand up to nitro fuel?

Any problems with your decals cracking from the heat yet? I'm going to use this method if it works but I don't want to waste my cash if it's temporary.

Here's another source... http://www.beldecal.com/inkjet_decals.cfm

So far so good, but I haven't had them on for very long.
They recommend you fuel proof them with Krylon Clear. This seems pretty durable...
