The decal quality is very good. If any of you can remember my 03 JV Bar Honda from Nats, they were an early test run. Since the sample I used @ Tamiya I have improved the print quality & durablity of the decals, and completed the final screen.

I was impressed with Mark's decals. Highly recommended! Now where are the Ferrari's?

That's great news!!

I wasn't planning on doing the Ferrari or Williams decals because Tamiya has done such a nice job on them but if enough people ask I will relase some.

The 1st 04 bar set will include all Tobaco sponsorship logos but I am planning on release both 03 and 04 version in non tobaco version around mid december.


Do we have any votes for an 04 Ferrari or maybe a 96 or 97 Williams?

Mark,

Are you planning on doing any older F1 decal sets?
For example 1994 Williams Renault Rothmans or 1993 Marlboro McLaren.
Thanks

I may do some older sets depending on demand and availablity of high quality source images.

A Rothmans Williams Renault and Marlboro McLaren are strong posibilities but are not likely to be ready before spring.

Sounds awesome man!!! I'd love to see what they'll look like.

I would LOVE to get some any of the designs 1992-1997 Williams-Renaults, preferably the later ones though. Are helmets going to be in the sheet too????

I presume you may get a deal going with Jake at F1-RC, i think he's a little sick of the demand he gets for them because he doesn't seem to have the resources to cater for it, but if you do, then it sounds bloody awesome!!!!

Keep us posted on ANY news reguarding this. I know EVERYONE F201 at our club will be VERY VERY interested in that!!!!!

Helmet decals will be included in some of the sets but not all. For example my Sauber sets will have decals for Fisi & Massa, the 03 Bar sets will have decals for JV & Button but the 04 Bar and Jag set will not include helmet decals. The wesite will very clearly state what is and is not included in each set.


I will be posting photos of cars with the decal sets on them once the site is up, right now the only bodies I have show race damage and would not be a good representation.

Jake's Decals are incredible but it looks as though the demand of doing them has worn on him. To be honest the only reason I will be doing them is beacuse he is no longer able to pump them out like before.

Will the decals be printed on an "Avery" based vynle sticker? And will they logos be created using vector artwork with no fuzzy pixelated bitmaps? TIA

The decals will be thermal printed on reprofilm and most images will come from high quality photos, with the rest created as vector graphics. Any livery that I can't reproduct with clear crisp non-pixelated graphics will not be sold. The limited supply of sufficient quality source material is the primary reason why some of the high demand vintage sets may not get produced.

Mark

For those of you not familiar with reprofilm it is a very thin drafting material with a similar weight and feel to Tamiya's decal material.
