Decal Designs Custom Works
Now for something a bit special!
Neil Oliver, gave us a bit of a headache when he asked us to produce for him a Futaba 3vcs transmitter skin to follow on from the F1 inspired 1/10 bodyshell designs that he uses. This was a great challenge for us as we needed to make the background look like chrome but could not actually use chrome vinyl for technical reasons. The chrome effect is printed onto high quality white vinyl. It is not metallic, really!!!
We think the illusion is pretty convincing?
Thank you to Neil Oliver for the stunning photographs.
Here is the second of the Custom Works transmitter Skins. This time it's for the Popular Futaba 3vcs, also fits the earlier Futaba 3vc. This one belongs to Graham from Custom Blitz and a very big thank you to him for the loan of his transmitter to make the template.
Decal Designs proudly presents the first of the newly designed Custom Works Transmitter Skins. The skin you see below we supplied to our first team driver Ellis "Big E" Stafford. Send us a photo of your car and let us work our magic and produce you a pure custom transmitter skin that is unique to you.
We now have the templates made for the KO Esprit-III Universe transmitter and Futaba 3vc/vcs, others will follow soon. The cost for a custom transmitter wrap will be £25.00* + £2.00 P&P**.
Email us with a photo of your car and add a list of your sponsors and names you want on the skin and let us do the rest.
*Please note that payment must be made in full before any artwork is produced. A proof will be emailed to you for approval and when you are happy with the look the skin will be made.
**£2.00 P&P applies to UK orders. For overseas orders ask for postage costs.
A range of off the shelf tansmitter skins will follow soon, so you can just choose and customise with your sponsor logos, names etc.
Decal Designs proudly sponsored the 2008 D1RC Euro Cup and their main man, John Turner asked us to make him the Union Jack graphics to go over the bonnet and roof of his drift cars, these were made using wrap vinyl and laminated with matching clear vinyl. This combination is thinner than the normal vinyl material we use and has the added advantage that it can be gently heated to make it conform over compound curves. We also supplied the sun strip, window and some of the side graphics for all the Euro Cup competitors.
Paul Songas, one of our cousins from the other side of the pond in the USA asked us to produce custom graphics for his electric r/c dragsters.
We sent our first prototype Custom Wing Skins to Pirate RC for testing, seen here at the 2008 Novarossi GP.
Thanks to Pirate RC For the photos.
Decal Designs produced the decal sheet shown below from art work supplied by the Oamaurai Drift Shop in the United States.
The decal sheet was printed onto our standard high quality vinyl sheet, then covered with the matching clear laminate and then finally precision contour cut, so all the customer had to do was peel and apply the decals to the car bodyshell you see below. 99% of all the decals you see on the bodyshell were made by us.

Neil Oliver Has been at it again!!! This year he changed his support from Lewis to Jensen and here is how it turned out!!!
Neil Oliver had an idea for two F1 inspired 1/10 off road body shells, so we came up with all the logos for him. I think we can say, with his paint job and our decals, the project came out rather well!!
Neil is a great guy to work with as he knew exactly what he wanted. This made our job so much easier.
This is the comment left by Neil on our comments page after he received his decals.
"Thank you for the custom sticker set Kevin. I have never worked with a supplier who was as technically and artistically switched on as you are. Each individual sticker was exact to my requirements which is excellent given that there were seventeen different designs and three size variations of each. Thank you again for a job well done"

We helped Nick Daman from RC Racing TV with his 1/12 replica of the Audi R10, by supplying him all the decals for some promotional work with Audi Sport. The car is seen below, sitting on top of the 1/1 version!!!
Dick Edmonds asked us to make the decals for his new model of a WW2 Bell Aircobra. He was pleased when it came in first place in his club's scale competition.
And Now For Something Completely Different!!!
Decal Designs were asked by Malcolm Usher to make replica Tecno logos for the restoration of his F3 Car.
This not a model this is the real thing!!!
