Default Sponsor decals?

I'm a little embarrassed to be asking this, but Google is failing me. Where are you guys getting all of your nice 1/10th scale sponsor decals? I'm trying to come up with a paint scheme for a rally build, but I think it'll look a little lame without some sponsor logos and such. Thoughts?

Thank you in advance!

Check out the paint section of the forum for some names of various people.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/painting...hotography-59/

One guy that I, and many others have used is Carl at

http://www.rctech.net/forum/painting...-stickers.html

He'll also do custom stuff if he has the right images to go from.

Or if you've got your shopping cart at Tower filling, have a look at some of these: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...cals&search=Go or you can get complete tamiya schemes, although as they may not be designed for your exact body, some manipulating may be required. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-94953...item1c294ed87a

Try searching on http://www.brandsoftheworld.com

You can download vector graphics from that website. I have personally never downloaded anything from them, so I cannot vouch that the files will be virus free. Also copyright laws vary in different countries, so reproducing a logo may be in violation of those laws.

If you are trying to mimic a current race car, you might contact the race team directly and tell them what you are wanting to do. Chances are they might be flattered by your efforts and provide you with logos/decals that you can use.

Good luck with your efforts.

Are you looking for full size 1:1 replica decals? Or RC specific decals?

If the latter, Peter @ RC Trim does great work.

Oh, I'm definitely looking for 1/10th scale decals. I don't want to go overboard, as I'm not a huge fan of the "plastered" look, but a few small sponsors here and there may complete the look. Thanks for the additional tips

Carl rocks. +1 for him. He custom made me some beer sponsor stickers! Look at my photo album.
