1/48 Early Maltese Cross decals

Recommended Posts

I have an Eindekker with no markings and can find no, I repeat, no, aftermarket early WWI Maltese cross decals in 1/48. I found 1/144, 1/72 even 1/24 and 1/32, but no 1/48. Anyone know of any or have a spare set from a kit? If not, this one goes back on the shelf unfinished.

Maybe scale up some 1/72 ones, and print out on white decal paper??

Nice idea, if you have a printer that could do that, which I don't. But thanks anyway.

Ok, this is gonna sound crazy, but hear me out. And I concede I have never tried it.

Since the markings you are trying to make are symmetrical in all axes, in theory, you could find some printed source for them and copy them on a copier where you can adjust the size. Then copy them on to the back or carrier paper side of white decal paper. Cut them out and you will have the white outline you need in white decal. Then, copy them again on the back of black decal paper and cut out the black only. Apply as a two part decal. 

Did that make any sense?

Or, if no black decal paper, print again on white or clear and paint it black- with apologies to The Rolling Stones. Nick
