Now that is just great.  Do you design and print your own decals?  Cheers

Thanks Steve, yes I went on a Google search for Ken Block's logo's and copied them onto a Word page, sized them up and printed them onto a white backed decal sheet, so two coats of clear enamel gloss later, cut them out pop them in warm water and lay tem up!

Thanks justmike. Well I dropped the ball there, I'd taken a postcard template, turned the decal sheet over and only noticed that when I'd cut it out! But thought, why not?  I also use the kit decal sheet edges that have the manufacturers name on, AMT, Revell, Hasegawa etc. like this....
