Wet transfer decals vs. dry transfers?
I just ordered some dry transfers for the Hirobo Super Cobra form Aeroloft and I am going to apply rivets via the glue dot method. After placing my order, I thought about the dry transfers not conforming to the rivets and how the wet decals w/ micro-sol will conform completely. Any thoughts on this. How can a person make the dry transfers work. Should I scratch the dry transfer order and look for wet transfer decals. If so, where can I find wet transfer decals for the super cobra in 1/8 t0 1/9 scale (Hirobo states the scale is 1/8 and my calculations incdicate 1/9.4)?

Hello Redmike,

I use A4 waterslide transfer paper,you can get it in white or clear and all you do is print the lettering and the image you require with the aid of photo software and seal the ink in with clear acrylic lacquer.

Then cut them out soak in water and slide in place, when dry clearcoat the whole body and they look like they have been painted on

You can get the paper from , http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk

Hiya
I have the same aircraft.
Scan the original decals you have into a PC. Then print them onto waterslide transfer paper.

I have done this on mine.
By all means have a look.
I kept the original decals and surprise surprise, I completely stripped the paintwork recently and used the decals again fo rnew markings.

I also used the glue rivet technique, and found the wet decals work better.

Let us know how you get on.

Regards
Ade
