Quoted TextI'm more then impressed that you're moving into the custom decal printing realm of the hobby. I believe that Michael from IndyCal doesn't always make his own drawings, but scans in the kit decals, then makes size, color corrections, and corrects any registration issues. A lot of work, but the results are far superior to the kit decals. Will be closely following your progress as you report your efforts. How about starting a thread so that we can follow your progress?
The sand / tan color background test I can make it when I catch some extra bench time - hopefully this week-end - on plastic spoons. Probably I'll be staring my Porche 959 for Porsche Campaign by then and the setup will come in handy.
I didn't meant I open a decal printing business - I just expanded my work bench. But, of course, I will let you know with examples if the effort pays off. Yes, I might open a separate thread but before anything else I need to pick up my shipment which is still in the shipper's warehouse, set up the printer and figure out how it works. It will be fantastic if I can synchronize it with my plotter to pre-cut the decal's contour (which I doubt).
I wasn't thinking that course, but rather being able to create all those decals that you can't get, or have to buy sheets for just a few decals. I've been down that path, and it gets expensive, and often times pretty frustrating in.
No rush on the primer test, so you can concentrate on the decals for now.
