The 148th take to the air!


As I noted in my last post I was inspired to do some Sopwith Camels as the 148th Aero Squadron. My biggest problem was finding letters the right size and white triangles. The letters ended up being rub on letters that I transfered to clear decal material and then applied them to the planes. Not exact but close enough to me. The triangle ended up just being hand done. They are close and a few had to be done a few times. I am reasonably happy with them and they will look nice taking on my Jasta 15 and 11 in WoW and providing my British forces air support in FOW1918.

I followed your link here from the WOW_Nexus list. Nicely done. You should be proud of the effort. One question, what is this decal material of which you speak?

Thanks

Kim,
The letters were the Woodland Scenic Dry Transfers that a local hobby shop had.

I would transfer them onto a blank/clear decal sheet, coat with a light dull coat and then cut them out and transfer them as a normal water slide decal. It was actually pretty easy.
