I am re-painting a radio-control trawler as it is looking a bit 'shabby' with a number of scratches etc. I thought it would be quite simple to source some water slide transfers so I can renew the boat No: etc.

I am looking for a couple of sheets of alphabet/numbers in a white or silver or gold colour and approx 20mm height in a straightforward font.

After looking through both the Amazon and e-bay web sites I have come up with nothing suitable.

Does anybody have any suppliers they can tell me about.

Thanks in advance.

One option, if you don't find what you're looking for, might be to print your own -- you can get blank water slide decal paper for use with both inkjet and laser printers. Just remember that you cannot print white on most home or office printers, so if your decals have white in them, you need to get the non-transparent version, i.e. with a white background to the decal film.

Try this company. Their products are available from stockists such as Cornwall Model Boats. I find Cornwall MB a very good supplier/stockist unlike some of their competitors.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
