Questions on decal paper

Post by sidneylopsides »

I've seen that a custom body+ transfer decal seems to be a great way to get a detailed livery.

So roughly, I pick a power chassis kit, model and print a body shell, design the livery and print on transfer paper then apply?

I'm guessing the thinnest paper is best to adhere to the shell properly?

Is there a recommended shell colour to work best with?

I would suggest white. simply because you can't print white on decals.

You cab get white backed decal paper, but edges can then be an issue.
