Looking for decals for finishing up a Orbital Transport. The decals that came with the kit are very old and very very brittle and keep breaking just trying to slide them off the wet paper. Even after soaking for a good 5 min. Any help would be appreciated..

Do you have any means for printing up your own decals?

I didn't see them on sandman's or stickershock's websites. I think Micro Mark makes something to paint the decals with to hold them together better but the name escapes me at the moment. (It's likely in their Microl Sol / Micro Set line) I also recall many threads on spraying with Krylon UV Chrystal Clear but wasn't sure if that was a solution to your current issue.

They have sets in five different colors BUT it is for their Semroc Orbital Transport, which may or may not be an exact fit to the Estes Orbital Transport.
I was going to list your options but this article from Old Model Kits says it best:

And here's a link to a .pdf containing a scan of the original decal so you can home print one:

Cheers.
