First try working with InkJet Decals:

I've never tried making my own decals. I ordered a packet of Testors clear and white decal paper for use with my HP Officejet Printer.

The process was pretty simple. I made a Pages document on my iMac of the image I wanted on the decals.

After printing the decal page I let the OfficeJet ink dry overnight and fixed the decal with decal bonder.

After soaking the decals they separated from the backing paper and I transferred them to the Lobster boat hull.

Another modeling process learned.

Nice. One of my favorite working boats. Many, many years ago I built what if I remember correctly was a Mid West version and radio controlled it. Needless to say after years of abuse, I retired the ole gal. I have looked at this kit numerous time and have to admit, yours turned out swell. Thanks for shairing.

Outstanding build log, Jan. There is a ton of helpful information; I made some notes and will return for more help as needed during my scratch build of the Donald David.
Great work! Thumbsup :)
