Ordering particular decals?
Posted by gpat5570 on Thursday, May 28, 2020 12:59 PM

Hi folks,

I plan to build a Challenger 1 Mk.3 tank. It's a Tamiya kit.


The decals are great, but only give availability for one particular call sign, i.e. '40'. I was wondering, does anyone know of a particular website that offers particular decal types? 

I actually need the call sign '31'.


I have looked through the internet, haven't found anything.

(Maybe I should get directly in touch with Tamiya?!)

I doubt Tamiya can help you, but...

Post this over in "Armor". You will get lot's of ideas. This particular forum is where decal application or printing issues are discussed, only say that because it only has a small proportion of armor modelers I am sure.



 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

I don't have the Tamiya kit; would it be possible to get a picture of decal set?
Echelon and Star make decals for a Challenger 1 and 2 that may have what you are looking for.
IMHO, I don’t think Tamiya would be much help with customizing decals, but I could be wrong. Contacting them would not hurt.
This may be a good time to investigate making your own decals. Just a thought.
