Eye-decals for scale figures

Post by laneboysrc on Mon 10 Aug 2015 - 16:47

Hi folks,

a few weeks back a few of us were discussing how difficult it is to paint the eyes on the plastic driver figures, like the Wild Willy or the Rally Cockpit. Turns out help is at hand:

(click on images to enlarge)


A company named Archer Transfers (http://www.archertransfers.com) makes water-slide transfers for scale figures. The sheets come with eyes for different scales. The 3rd smallest works well for the 1:10 scale Rally cockpit; the larger ones would sure fit the Wild Willy.



If you never did any scale modeling like me than applying the eyes is not an easy task. The decals are tiny, after cutting them out you are left with a 1 x 2.5 mm ultra-thin decal. You will also need some decal setting solution (Micro Set, Tamiya MarkFit, etc) as otherwise the decal will not stick down. Even though it is as difficult as painting, the result is much better than what I could paint:





I managed to damage 3 decals while making those four heads, but I've never done any water-slide decals before. An experienced scale modeler will certainly do better. Cost for 2 sets incl. shipping was SGD 26; took less than 2 weeks to arrive.

happy modeling, Werner
