I tried the Laserprinter papaer they have in Aalborg Hobby Shop (Can't
remember brand) in a Samsung colourlaser with remarkably poor results - the
colour stuck to the rotating part and it took several runs with blank paper
to get rid of. So untill now I haven't ventured more into this way of doing
I have tried inkjet decal paper with much more luck, You have to use a clear
lacquer afterwards, but it works ok. Just be aware that the images has to be
good, mine was tested on plain paper first and looked good, but some got a
little blured because I hadn't cleaned up the image good enough first.
The results can be seen in my model gallery on
Seafire 47 where all serials and codes vere done this way and the Seversky
P-35A in Swedish markings, where the squadron insignia was printed (Black
eagle on red disk)
Fell free to contact me if you have any questions that I might help you

Have thought of it several times.
How many of you guys makes your own decals?
Why I'm asking? I'm looking at a task where there are absolutely no
other way than to have costom made decals.
Have done some 'lookin-around-on-the-web' and came to the result that it
could be done with special decal paper and a laser printer.
From what I've read ink-jet is also possible but the result is better
using laser printer.
Next question is where to find the right products/paper?
It would be a lot easier/cheaper for me if the products could be bought
within the european-union.
Do not know the use of this
These are for ink-jet printing
The application will be on ABS plastic.
Experience with any product is very much appreciated ;-)
NB: The ALPS printer solution is not within reach :-(
