I'm assuming the decals are white, not silver.
I've heard of other people using white Trim Monokote for the white areas on the fins.

As is always the case, your mileage may vary.

Still need a text height.

and white on silver? is the silver a shadow or outline?

If anyone has a picture of the original decals (on or off the rocket) it would be helpful.

I'm working on finding suitable fonts.

Bernard,

You might contact Eagle3 (Buzz Nau) to see if he has a higher resolution version of his photo in this post:

I guess that some patent claims have driven my decal backing paper supplier out of business. The merit of the claims is dubious. I tried someone else but have not received a response yet. Fingers crossed

Comrades:

Shhhh . . . don't tell her, I got another Sandhawk to rescue.

Here's the payload bay. It was split along both long seams , but not at either end. The nose cone was glued on, but strangely offset. The original bayonet mount would have had the seams on the nose line up with the seams on the bay. There was a large crack laterally near the nose starting at one seam and another, smaller one starting from the opposite seam. Had they connected, this would have been much more difficult. Also, there is a fairly large dent that looks like someone melted the plastic somehow.

Using Plastruct Plastic Weld (MEK), I glued the cracks first and then tackled the long seams. One side I squeezed together but the other side I shimmed with a strip of styrene. You can see the shim as a thin white line in the picture. I probably should have used a thicker piece.

I'm thinking of filling the dent with slow CyA and sanding before it gets super hard. Also there does not appear to be any way around rescribing the panel lines. I was able to locate the antenna spots and drill them out, but without access through the nose, I'll have to come up with some other way to secure them rather than the usual epoxy from inside.

This is a part of a very large lot I was able to obtain. They were all built between 1970 and 1976. The builds are straight but the finishes are rough, being mostly dope. There was lots of paperwork and a whole bunch of unfired engines, including 18mm shorties, dated as far back as 1968. The D powered rockets in some cases had engines and wadding installed like they've been waiting for launch for 44 years. The engines were all stamped 1976.

If I gotta stay home, I'm gonna work on some of this stuff.

This may be loooong past your need, but here are the Stiletto decals with ruler, JIC.
