    Jul 22, 2011, 10:01 AM - ESB helmet decals template? #1

    Hi, I wanted to print my own ESB helmet decals as i think the vinyl kind would be too thick for the smaller markings.. I tried to search.. but could not find any..

    Anyone willing to share the templates so i could print them on directly to white water slide decal paper?

    Thanks for anybody who is kind enough and willing to help out a newbie

    **I will not, in anyway make copies other than for my own bucket**

    Have you considered using dry transfer (rub on) letters? It's how the originals were done.
    You just need a D, V, :, two E's, and nine capital I's.

    If you have any model railroad hobby shops around, a company called Woodland Scenics makes really nice dry transfer letters in a variety of fonts and sizes.
    If I remember right, the originals were Letraset letters, but there are very few places in the U.S. that carry them these days.

    Oh wow, letter transfers! I think we still have them here in old bookstores.

    would anyone know what size the letters were?

    My measurement says 7mm (0.275583637 inch) or font size 20. This is what I found using the images from the gallery (I used an image recognition program found on the net that can read font types from any image):

    This is the image I used to find the font type:

    And this is the result using the font type found - Social Gothic Regular:

    I'm glad I helped! I plan to do the decals for all six helmets (as I did for the each armor), but will need more time for the kill stripes.
