Engine labels for for the lazy - ready for print.

Go to your local Hobby store model train store. Usually in the paint area you can find printable decal sheets made by Testors. They come in 2 types...clear and white. They are all A4 sized for printing.

Since printers do not print white, if you get the 'clear' decal sheets anything that's "white" will be blank. If you get the 'white' then you will need to trim EXACTLY everything that ou don't want white,

I would go with the clear sheets, then pre-paint the area of the decal white. Then cut out the printed decal and apply it over the white paint.

This will give a bright background for the decal to stand out as well as give you better control over where the white color will be.

 

To Malmer....You are AWESOME for making these. Thanks.

Thanks Malmer - printed out a sheet onto white waterslide transfer paper, sprayed with clear gloss (to waterproof my inkjet) and all my models look great... Need to work out a set for my transport....

Love it. Please make Firespray and HWK as well ^___^

Firespray and HWK may be tricky, since those engines are textured/convex, and a decal or sticker wouldn't be perfectly flat against the engine.

 

This is gonna come off dumb, but I gotta ask. Can a blow dryer do anything for that material?

I downloaded these back in the day for my Falcon and Lambda.  They are great, so a long overdue thank you for making these.

While I'm going the LED route for my Raider, I have to agree that its engine is criminally blank, flat, and boring.  I imagine it'd be a real pain to put a sticker on perfectly, though.

The Heroes of the Resistance Falcon luckily comes with great looking prepainted engines, so one less to worry about.

I actually like my stickered Falcon a whole lot more than the pre-painted one.

I'm surprised there is still demand for these. Dropbox changed the way file sharing is handled, so I just updated the link accordingly.

Thanks!!
