Default custom body detailing help needed

I recently purchased my son a rustler for his fourth birthday. it is his first rc and do I'm gonna do a custom body for it for him. He loves captain America do that is the theme. i already have the paint and body. I wasn't to put a shield inn the roof. I want all the graphics to be on the inside so he doesn't destroy them. I have found a pretty sweet vinyl window cling that I like but I'm not sure how to attach it to the body. My plan was to attach the graphics the paint over them and that easy the paint would surround them. Any ideas?

I really want to use this on the roof but on the inside prior to painting. How do I hold it in place? Double sided pregnant tape? Super glue? Clear lexan paint?

Hi
If you want to paint the sheild let me know and I'll cut the mask and mail it to you. There are some glues that dry clear. much easier to paint if you want it to look perfect!

Gladly. But don't you think it will be s little difficult to get the shading on the silver to look right? Or Just ignore the shading?

Is that done with an air brush or spray cans? I don't have an airbrush and that is part of why I was going to do the vinyl decal. I'm not sure what brand of paint I got but I'll gladly let you know when I get home.

The image on the front of Captain America was painted by hand with a regular brush, like you would paint a picture on a canvas. All the rest is with an air brush but rattle cans would do just as well. everything is painted on the inside of the body.It would be hard to paint the shadows on the shield with cans as the spray pattern is not thin enought to do any detail work. Better off spraying the shield like the ones I painted on the sides of the body, (solid colors)
