Printing decals

1 comment

I've been trying to print on Testors white decal paper with my inkjet with very poor results. With my Canon Pixma printer, the ink beads up even though it is inkjet decal paper. Have you ever experienced this? Does your printer do a decent job? Any advice?

Did you ever get this solved? Sorry I didn't see it earlier (would be nice if there was a "last post date" in the main forum page for each category - is that possible?). I've used the non-white decal paper before but not the white, and I didn't have a problem with my ink jet, so not sure what to attribute it to.

    After the resin castings are cut loose and smoothed, soak them in Westley’s Bleche-Wite to remove oils and casting residue that can hinder paint and adhesives. A bottle is just a couple of bucks.

    Cut photo-etched parts loose with a hobby knife (not your good clippers). Clip as closely as you can, but be careful — they are naturally springy and elusive. For tiny parts, leave the fret in the bag and cut through the plastic so when they come loose, they’re still in the bag.

    I recently had to clean out my dad's garage and I found some old models that I can't find much info on and was wondering if anyone here could help. They all seem to be from 1955. I have Stark rocket, I think it is Monogram brand. I also have a red ME-109 and a Folke 190. Both are German WWII made by Auroua. All I know is that ME-109 is not the first edition. Thanks for any help.
