Uschi wood decal
Posted by fermis on Saturday, May 06, 2017 10:06 AM

Has anyone used this...

This is the set I have (for 1/32)

It looks really good!

What I'd like to know is....what would be a good base color? Is there a color that is tried-n-true?

I'm only guessing, but assuming that a base in the tan/yellow range would be good...but...???

I've used Tamiya deck tan and desert tan under the Uschi decals. Both worked out fine with no problems.

Watch the decals carefully - they are pretty thick and the pixelation is quite visible as small squares in random areas. Most of the time, these aren't problems, but you do need to pay attention in places where the decals will overlap to avoid creating ridges or drawing attention to the weird areas that seem a little pixelated. Still, a pretty decent product that takes the strain out of the grain - have fun with these!

I have made wood decals using inkjet decal paper. I have an oak door in my house that is flat with no decorative work on the face.  I just shot a few pictures, and printed them on the paper. I used white decal paper, which is opaque, so you don't have to worry about the color underneath.

Hi Greg ;

  I saw those at my LHS on my last visit . Have used them for the decking on a plastic model of a Chris - Craft 36 foot boat . Cut into strips and used properly they stand out and look very real . Especially over a dark flat brown deck .  T.B.
