    Contact decal connection. Or find yourself some decal paper and run it through your inkjet. Lots of ways to do it. If you use decal paper be sure to cut it at a bevel, away from the decal, this prevents little bubbles when you coat it.

    Very nice post! If done carefully you can use Testors and a very fine dip pen to do text. Graphics really should be done this way.

    I wish I was that talented in doing graphics that way.
