Howdy folks.
I've been tinkering around with Microsoft PowerPoint trying to recreate decals by totally redrawing them. It's been working out pretty well.

Here's a tempate and decal set for a BT-50 version of the Estes Starliner.

Let me know what you guys think. I've got a few other things I've been working on as well.

Cheers!

Ok, here's something else I've been working on. It was inspired by Apogee's newsletter that talked about how to make angle cut templates for body tubes. I decided to put on my PowerPoint Ranger Badge and see if I could come up with an easy PP method......so here it is!!!

I'll take any feedback...

If you need further clarification on the process, feel free to ask!

Cheers!

Look closely... One of the beauties of creating your own decals is being able to make your kids (and your dog) passengers on an Estes Starliner with your son in the cockpit flying the dang thing!

Ok, so how did I become a BAR? My oldest daughter and I were walking through WalMart about 2 years ago. We were in the toy aisle and she saw a rocket starter set. She said (I'm not lying), "Cool dad! Can we get a rocket?" With a surprised look on my face, I said,"Well, yes we can!" I had a fun time later that day explaining to my wife that it was my daughter who wanted the rocket and that she needed one of every rocket set WalMart had. Good thing I have a son now. All the clone rockets would look strange hanging from the ceiling in the girls' room!

Oh, I'm attaching a fixed copy of the decals/templates. I realized I was missing the aileron decals for the wings on the original file. I fixed a few other minor things as well.

Cheers!
