Hello!
I normally am on the Armorama site but I need some help on finding some decals for a car I am working on. I race 1/24th scale slotcars. I am working on a BMW body for a Scaleauto car.

I want to build the Shell Helix BMW DTM car. I am trying to find a quality set of decals from a vendor or a kit of the car I can rob the decals from.

Does anyone have some advice?
Thanks ahead of time.

Hi, Greg!

Not sure of a kit but I think Joel mentioned several times Indical as a high quality custom decal source and, for what I understood, they do on demand too. You might want to check the company by yourself or you can ask for Joel's help because he's well acquainted with the guy that runs Indical.

Hi Greg - you might try Spot Model, or Hiro Boy . While I’m not sure if either will have exactly what you need, both have lots of interesting decals and other parts - who knows? Maybe they’ll have what you’re looking for - as they seem to have decals for all sorts of race car prototypes.

There’s another shop called Pattosplace - and they carry decals specifically for slot cars - maybe another good place to check?

Good luck wth your search!

Cheers

Nick

Thanks for the suggestions. What kind of cost are "custom" decals?
In the Armor field I haven't had this issue.

Not sure, Greg. You should message Joel. He does buy them quite regularly.
