    Nov 4, 2009, 11:26 AM - *RUN* Accurate Chest Decal (MoM Exhibition) #1

    Hi

    I'm currently making a set of chest, collar and back armour for a customer who really wants the chest decal to be "just like" the MoM Exhibition photos.

    I sifted through all my archive shots from the MoM Exhibit to find a suitable photo to use as a start point. I found a shot that showed lots of the detail but was taken at an angle. So, after a couple of hours straightening, re-sizing the image, colour correcting and creating the cutting template I was finally happy with the result. Here's a comparison of the decal against a photo from the MoM Exhibition. It's printed onto a permanent self adhesive vinyl.

    UK = 8 inc. shipping (for 2 decals)
    USA = $14 inc. shipping (for 2 decals)
    EUROPE = 8.50 inc. shipping (for 2 decals)

    • RUN LIST
    1. Slave I = PAID *SHIPPED*
    2. tc-2917 = PAID *SHIPPED*
    3. Corrose = PAID *SHIPPED*
    4. Mmgraphics = (1 @ 1/2 size) PAID *SHIPPED*

    I could, but he point of this exercise was to capture the weathering on the decal really. Once I remove the weathering, the decal loses it's link to the MoM photo.

    Nice work Daz.. I agree that by removing the weathering it loses it purpose.

    I see.
    I thought you were trying to make an accurate decal, not capture the subtleties of the weathering of said decal.
    Carry on.

    If there were another 4 people intersted then I could make a small run of these. Probably about 4 each.

    Can you make me one about 3/4 of the original size for my sons armor? I'd also be interested in a full size one as well. How much USD for both?

    BTW- How the **** did you do that? lol

    Wow! Wasn't expecting so many interests. No problem, I'll put the names and prices at the top of the thread. Should be able to get these finished really quickly. No payments just yet please.

    NOTE: The prices shown are for 2 Decals and include packing and shipping, USA and Europe are Airmail.

    Daz,
    These are great man!!! Gotta a question too. I've been trying to determine this for a few years, and haven't been able to say for sure. Are the chest decals for ESB and ROTJ the same?? I always thought they were, How about you??

    As far as I know, they are the same decal. I believe that it's only the shoulder decal that differs.
