nose art
 
I am looking for books or better yet a site or a company that makes decals that can be used for nose art on scale ww11 planes. back in the 80's there was a company that had decals. that was nose art. I am finishing a p61 1/7 scale and would like to put some nose art on it. I have been scherching the mags for nose art but the closest thing I can find is major decals. any help will be appreciated thank you

Here is the link for the guy I mentioned above.
Gary, you are correct about finding more than you bargain for. The trouble with your search is there are not too many decal suppliers that way.

Yes you are right! I was thinking of how I can capture a web picture and drop it into a document to transfer on to a laser decal sheet. I can enhance the image by using the Paint program some of the time. Ready made off the shelf decals are another story!!! Sorry.

I have a Byron P-40 that I am planning on doing like the one then Lt Sidney S. Woods flew in the Pacific during WWII and decals are not available for it. Revelle happened to have made a plastic kit of his P-40 and I bought one off of Ebay, NIP. The decals and color docs are in the kit, so I took it to a local air brush artist and showed him what I needed and the size. He quoted me $80.00 to do the nose art on both sides of the Byron P-40 and then clear coat it.

If you have photos or a good description of what you need done, check with an air brush artist in your area. I think that it would be better than decals on a large scale aircraft.

Check with Dennis Kirby, at Kirby Custom Vinyl Graphics. He can make up pretty much anything you want, if you have a pic and the scale of the airplane. He made up the nose art, wing and fuse stars and bars and fuse numbers for me.... Shown below (I hope! LOL)

These are on the H9 Corsair 50; she can make any size you want. By the way, also have MARINES on the underside of the left wing.
