1/18 Custom decals

Post by gliderdwm » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:31 am

Does any know of someone who can make me some decals for a plane?
I use to get some from Jackson a member here and very nice ones.
Don't think he does them anymore and want to get back into some custom stuff

Thanks for the help.
I was looking for somebody to make Custom decals.
Like the ones that came in the F-16 ANG versions.
Jackson made great decals for me back in the day.
My Gabreski P-47, Blackburn Big hog corsair, Marge P-38. Very good quality also.

I would like to see someone produce custom decals like you do. Someone out there knows how to, I am sure.

Peddinghaus does Great work. He printed the decals for my Me163. He even added more more decals than what I sent him.

You could try here, www.drawdecal.com. They are located in Minnesota. Hope this helps.

The information provided here is certainly helpful. Thank you all for it! Now I need to develop the information that I need for my needs. I need a couple of sets of decals for 4 Projects that I am working on.

So these sites like drawdecal won't work.
I need somebody like Jackson did to make nice detail decals for a specific plane.
He did for me Marge, the Gabreski P-47, My Tex hill P-40, Blackburn Big hog Corsair and my Douglas Bader Hurricane and Hartmann 109G.
Not ones that are generic already done for planes.
I emailed Peddinghaus but Jackson lived in Vegas and had great prices with quick turnaround time on a custom job. I miss him!
I have a Barkhorn Christl 1/18 set i need to use

Draw Decals did a complete set of VF-41's Last Tomcat Cruise decals for my buddy's 1/18th scale Tomcat, they do custom work.

I sent a request for decals for an AH-64 Apache set of decals and a set for an MH-60 Blackhawk as well. I can't wait to hear back from them.
Thanks again A-10LOADER, as I had no idea what I was going to do for decals for both of these Birds!

Well, I heard back from them. "We are unable to offer any custom decal services, sorry.
I am a little disappointed, but, I am optimistic that I will get them done somewhere.
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained."
A10LOADER, thanks for the lead, in any event. I will try Peddinghouse to see if they may be able to help.

WOW, very surprised to hear this Mutt, sorry it didn't work out. Good luck in your search, this is a difficult one apparently.

I’ve communicated with Bedlam Creations before and will vouch they are legitimate and still in operation. I’ve not yet used them however. A custom source I have used is Diecast and Decals. They did a good job, but the owner is a trucker and can have slow turnaround time if he’s on the road.
