Home made decals easier than I thought...

I just printed out my first sheet of home-made (actually pirate) decals. I've always liked the cheesy instrument decals in the Revell XSL-01, Moonship, and Space pursuit, and finally had a project that could use some. I printed out a few scans of the decal sheet from Sven Ninfinger's site, cut-and-pasted the important parts together, and ran my sheet through the home laser printer onto some "Experts choice white decal film" that's been cluttering up my decal file for several years. Worked like a charm. Of course, this was just found artwork in simple black-on-white, but it worked very well. I should have done this a while ago!
