    Good afternoon all, I had a very productive weekend getting the decals on the Big Cat. I'd like to wait until ALL the decals are applied before I show it off but, here's a teaser for those loyal followers. Thanks all for staying along for the ride. Steve "TOMCATS FOREVER, BABY...!"

    Everyone I contacted, going back 6 years, wanted big bucks to do custom decals or masks. I would have much preferred to paint the big stuff but, then you run into the problem of mixed media ( painted on markings and decals ), they probably won't match. Besides some of the parts are already finished with decals so, I'll continue on with what I have. At least they will all match and, when I'm finished with the decals and flat coat, they'll look painted on anyway. Steve "TOMCATS FOREVER, BABY...!"

    I tried to get stencils made but, couldn't find anyone to do them. I would have preferred to paint on the bigger markings. Thanks very much, this stage of the build has re-motivated me. I'm looking forward to seeing markings on her finally. Steve "TOMCATS FOREVER, BABY...!"

    You would be correct John, the whole sheet is one big decal, hence the cutting out. Those "tabs" are so I can grab the decal with my tweezers. I've gently sliced the carrier film in those locations so the decal comes off. Thanks again for the kind words and following this project. Steve "TOMCATS FOREVER, BABY...!"
