    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    I've made some using just regular photo paper, cutting it out, and then fasting it to the plane with a round piece of clear monokote. Worked really well. Worst part was getting rid of the air bubbles.

    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    places like Office Max or Office Depot sell decal paper that is self adhesive. It will stick to monokote.

    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    I use Avery clear label. Ink jet printer, then I will cover it with another layer of the clear label paper, or in some cases, clear packing tape to protect it from the fuel. Has worked pretty good. Just cut it out, peel off the backing and place it where you want it. I have done so with a WWII era portrait of my mom for my current project, a Nitro Models, 52 inch P-38 which will be named, "Donna May", for my mom. Here is the sticker I made in place. I think I will hand paint the name. The names I have printed out seemed to look a little runny to me. Not exactly a pinup, but she is my mom after all!

    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    Found a site here with lots of vintage pinup girls decals. Most are racy but not tacky if you know what I mean.

    ORIGINAL: Cobra99
    You guys who mention making your own, what kind of paper are you using? I noticed some said water slide, but what about for using on Monokote? I'm working on a 40 size Mustang which will later be upgraded to a 1/5 scale Top Flite version, but for the Monokote I'm not sure how/if the water slide decals would work.
    I didn't make this one (bought it eBay for less than $5), but the lady (not the lettering) IS waterslide on MonoKote, and so far no problems:

    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    I'll recommend Dave at Warp Grafix.

    http://www.warpgrafix.com/index.html

    He does great work for a buddy of mine who does custom paint.

    He's honest, friendly, and quick.

    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    Guys, theres a whole slew of pinup art including Vargas and much, much, much more at www.thepinupfiles.com
    Well over 50 artists each with at least 1 page full of thumbnails(usually 2 or maore pages per artist) that lead to very good size pictures. Ive used stuff from there many times and sent what I wanted to Calliegrafix.
    This is one of mine that was done using art from that site and then sending to Callie. Had the vinyl decals within 5 days.

    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    A decal is a decal. On monokote you get good adhesion. You might need to clear over it to seal the edges.. but other wise it should work just fine.

    Yes the pinup is from Olivia.
    I have another Olivia pinup art on my 80" P-51
    My B-17 has a Vargas pinup.
    Callie is very good and very low cost. The entire set for the "Hot N Bothered" B-25 was only $33 which included the nose art for both sides of the plane, the name(both sides) and 2 sets of crew names(6 names) in two sizes.

    I personally dont like using decal paper. I tried it on my smaller P-51 and the picture looks ok, but its quite obviously decal paper and doesnt look professional at all. Attached is a pic of that. The pinup girl is another one from thepinupfiles.com Dont remember the artist though.

    RE: Pin-up girl decals

    There hasnt been any perception of color fade on the work Callie has provided me. All but one of the the planes that has decals made from her are on Glow fuel planes and are exposed to a lot more gunk then any gasser would and the decals have been fine.
    Now...Callie does state you should clear coat the decal once applied if its on a fuel powered plane.

    Now with the decal paper on the small P-51...its a different story. Once the clear coat fades away or gets "cleaned" off by the glue fuel residue, the paper itself will likely start to degrade.
    That is another major reason to avoid decal paper in my opinion. All for Callie's stuff is done on vinyl so this wont happen.
    Brian, since I know what type of planes you fly and own, I highly doubt you'd ever use decal paper anyhow, but added the decal paper issues for those others reading the thread.
