The book was a short run 68 page publication printed in 1980. It was put together by a couple of guys who were serving at RAAF Williamtown at the time. It was printed by EXAMINER OFFSET of Raymond Terrace. There is no ISBN in the book. I bought my copy when it was released and have never seen another copy. If you want, I can send you a scan of my copy.

Wally..so how do you scale and print that on decal paper? I'm thinking a whole sheet of 1/72,1/48 & 1/35 would be great and could be shared with fellow members..unless you could do it and ill swing you a few dollars for your costs and efforts ?

hi asho well you can right click the image I posted, copy it onto a word or powerpoint document and being a large picture you can scale it down to the required size without losing any resolution and then print on decal paper.

I can add a few of these to the next decal project I print in the next few weeks all I need is the size required ie 5mm high or whatever

cheers

Wally..this crap townhouse we live in has some major electrical issues which I'm fighting with the agent about and we've just come back tonight from shopping to find my practically brand new $1,500 HP Notebook has had a major shock from the power point. The plasma was on the same point but running through an off peak energy saving power switch. So in short I now can't do anything except read and post using my iphone. If you can do these decals in scales from 1/350 up to 1/35 it'd be happy to pay for them. Probably 4-6 of each scale would be great (1/350-1/144-1/72-1/48-1/35). Thanks mate,G

Asho as I dont have the kits to measure the decals up against I need either the scale dimensions of the letters numbers or the dimensions of the real thing in 1:1 scale so I can mathematically determine how tall they should be

Asho, send me a PM with your address and I'll send you a copy of the RAAF paint drawings for this one. I did it years ago in 72 scale after being inspired by one by another regular on this site and was fortunate enough to have acquired a copy of the drawings. Cheers,

AGW..
