They do have some nice F-4 and F-14 schemes.

Wow! They have exactly the decal subject of VF-33 1976 USS Independence from when I visited the carrier in Naples Bay on my first High School field trip!

Has anyone heard of UpRise Decals? Scalemates is showing some pretty interesting Phantom sheets but I can't seem to find them for sale anywhere.

I know the guy very good. ...Because it's me...:)

Decals and masks is my hobby and the decal is silk print. I sale my items directly but the https://the48ers.com/ will started to sell them after a month. The decals are on the way to the shop. 🙂

Welcome uprise!

 

This is cool news, I often buy from 48ers, so I will be on the lookout for your decals on my next purchase.  I really like some of the options you have!

Pardon my ignorance, but what does it mean when decals are silk printed?

I assume silk printed is the same as silk screened ?

My question remains: what does it mean when decals are silk screened? Is there a difference in the way they are applied?

It's classic technique and 95% of decals produced by the technique.

Laser decals produced by laser printer with white toner. The main difference - film entire all sheet and need to cut every element by knife or scissor.

It's example of my work - Airbus A350-1000 Virgin Atlantic decal+masks.
When I work with a project I'm trying to predict any troubles:
- masks for rear fuselage. It's so complicated to make the area correct and identical for both side.

- the mask has key-mask for correct place 

- Virgin Atlantic bands produced by masks because the colour is so complicative and the elements are so big. Decal lives only 20-30 sec. and it's only time to place it correctly. After that it's time for battle.))) But after that you need to fight with sparkles and wrinkles. After all it's need to burn the decal by Microsol/Microset. And you needs airbrush work to hide so big decal...  So many chances to damage so big decal or surface and the result doesn't guaranteed. With the mask it's possible to place them ad lib, to change the position, to return to start point. And NO decal's background. 🙂
- Virgin band for tail produced by mask too because the red background will appear through white colour. The mask provides ability to keep absolutely white colour. 🙂
