Yes they are. All of them. Semroc and Excelsior.

Why are the letters in the word "BAT" skinnier on your decal than they are on mine? I purchased my decal set from Excelsior as well, a couple of years ago.

I don't know. I just noticed now that you said something about it.

I've been trying to verifying the correct size of the lettering on all the decal files that I inherited.

"The Bat" lettering does have to be adjusted. I can do that real easy. I've learned a few Corel "tricks".;)

Let me know if you want a replacement.

I agree; your decal does look fine. The only reason that I said anything was because the lettering looked slightly different from mine, and yet we both got our sets from the same source. I think that you did a fine job on your Bat.

Yes, the decals from Sandman are excellent. The Bat is a great flyer!

I gotta agree with everyone, If there is a decal I can't do I send them to sandman! keep it up Gordie!

I have the same problem with some of the decal files too, It is really hard to scale them exactly sometimes. Sometimes the best thing is the TLAR method...

That looks about right! :D

Keep it up Sandman.

An Alps printer is one of the only ways to do that.

BTW, the BAT decals have been "fixed" with the thicker lettering.

I have to rely on you guys to find this stuff!

Now, next question, does anybody have an original Centuri "EGG Crate" decal set they can scan?

Aren't Alps printers obselet. I do not think they make them anymore. I know the cartridges are hard to get at best.

Not really and again not really if you know where to look!;)

The printers are available out of New Zealand.

Well Sandman, I think I would be better off just ordering them from you! Keep up the great work!
