New Decal Products available

Although I have been printing decals for fellow modelers for some time, I have now decided to offer some decals that are not available to everybody.
My first offerings are decals for the NScaleKits DODX in regular and stencil lettering.

I also offer a service where you can choose the railroad name on the decal sheet. The first product is also for NScaleKits model; the Gunderson 5-unit double stack car.

Please check out my web site: http://usloki.tripod.com/nhodecal.htm

My goal is to provide decals as customized as possible without the hassle of ordering 20, 50 or 100 sets. I also design N-scale decals and do not resize HO sets. I also try to make them easy to apply, like the Gunderson double stack set that has only a few pieces, which saves a lot of time.



Comments are welcome

Roland (engineshop) has done some decals for me and I can attest to both the quality of his work and the reasonableness of his prices. All my N scale cars, no matter how old, now have end reporting marks, thanks to Roland.

A suggestion that I think would sell.

Stencil Alphabet/Number sheets, perhaps with a few sizes per sheet. Only needed in white and black.

Unless I am completely missing something I have failed to find these in N scale, I tend to find decal sets that have stencils and use them, and have taken to scanning those sheets to print my own. I would just prefer to buy some if available.

If anyone knows of a current source for these I would appreciate the info.

Roland,
I've added a bunch of rolling stock to the fleet... I'll be sending you a sheet of end markings shortly ;D
Any luck scaring up that WM font?

I made the stencil font for the DODX myself which makes it easy to print out numbers and letters already in the right order. No need for cutting together single digits. If you could tell me what you need, I could check it out.

Did you find a nice head on shot of the lettering so I could trace it?

That Maryland Font is dead on.  I'm ordering it and putting it on the laptop.

Hi Roland, would you consider doing some grafitti sheets?   There isn't much available beyond a (very) few from Micro-Scale and Blair Line, and it takes time to "roll your own" on a PC w/inkjet printer.   The hardest is the "white line scrawl" type: This is impossible to produce on an inkjet, and very tricky to make by hand even if you can find an opaque white paint pen with an ultra-fine line:

And there are the more 'solid' but still mostly white types:

If you can supply the artwork, I can print them out. I would need it in bmp or gif or jpg (quality set on 100%) file.
White or black or a mixture of w/b would be no problem.
