...I really wish they would make a serious effort at quality decals.
I just, pain stakingly, finishing my SpaceShipOne, masked it off and airbrushed all of the red areas - it was perfect...and then, I started to apply the "decals". This piece of "S" ruined my work. First of all, you basically get one shot at placement and even when you get it on the money, 50% of the time, the edges of the decal start to lift off. Forget about trying to get it to conform and look smooth on curved areas like near the tip of a nosecone. My SS1 nosecone looks like I taped it together with Scotch tape.
They recently went back to the old style elastic for the shock cord, so Estes why not go back to the waterslide decals?
How much more would it cost us, per kit, for you to switch back to the waterslide decals? $1?...$1.50?...$2.00?! I think that I maybe representative of a lot (and perhaps most) of your loyal customers when I say that I'm willing to pay it.
I mean, lately, your kits have been top notch (especially the X-Prize kits), the packaging, the parts, the support, so why not the decals? Believe me when I say, the decals can make or break the final look.
