26 Year Old Decals - Can I trust them?


Recommended Posts

I am in the middle of a kit build of a Billing Boats Bluenose which is 26 years old and I am concerned about the usability and of course reliability of the decals included in this old kit. I have of course the "Bluenose" and scrollwork decals that are to be attached on each side of the bow. I have included a scan of the decal which has been quite a challenge itself to get given the transparency and difficulty getting the contrast and shading correct even to view.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

I have also posted this query in my build log.

 

Thanks!

Thanks Ken for your reply,

 

The scan came up a bit yellow but the decal actually still looks good. If you enlarge the picture of the scan, there is more detail to see.

I think I am going to paint on the scroll work but either try the old ones or make new decals or put letters down individually.
