Default Wanted:. Lil' Ivan decal scans

I'm looking for scans of the Lil' Ivan decals. Semroc and or Centuri would be great.

Also, does anybody still print decals?

Thanks Earl!

Anybody have a scan of the Semroc decals?

I don't suppose that anybody prints white decals anymore either.

I didnít realize the Centuri decals were white. eRockets must have printed them in black or some color, since they do laser printer decals.

Iíve had really great results using vinyl from Stickershock, but the smallest rocket Iíve put them on is BT-60. The issue is text (or any small graphic). Individual letter or words could be done on these. But if really small, they have to be printed on a solid piece of vinyl, so matching body color is tough.

Here is a set of Bandit decals Mark upscaled from BT-55 to BT-60 for me. Itís obviously not a Bandit, but I was given an STM-012 by a friend that challenged me to do something different with the kit. I used all the parts, just cut them up a bit.

I have a sealed Semroc kit - hate to open and scan, but we'll see - I'd let the whole kit go, since I have a builtup one in the fleet already.

Earl,

I hate to be a PITA, but that fin scan looks to be clipped just a bit....

Yes, it is just a tiny bit, but no problem; just extend the lines of the trailing edge and the tip edge until they meet and you will have the missing portion...it is just a sliver.

That kit was built about three years ago, so I do not have the bare fin any longer.

I have a Centuri Lil' Ivan kit along with an eBay rescue, though I didn't have to 'rescue' anything - it was a pretty good build, never flown. Didn't realize Carl had switched the color scheme.
