I need to get decals for a special L-39 Albatross that I'm building. It's the L-39 that one of the Warrior Aviation
team members flys,and I want to duplicate the markings of the plane. How would I go about doing this without me spending a lot of money to do this.

Thanks,
Craig N

Craig,

what scale? 1/48-1/72-1/32?
don't know if you have googled for the decals or how "special" the decals that you need are? here is one page [link below] that has a lot of images of decal sets for that aircraft. If you need specific numbers and other non production decals, good luck. I recently spent a month searching for some out of print decals for an existing air force squadron. Problem is, producers want you to submit the "art"--High resolution file of the exact decals you need, then......they don't make any $$$ producing one set [sheet] for a client--they often have a minimum number of sheets they have to sell. In addition, if you need any "white" decals, it takes an exclusive type of printer. I have never made my own decals although I have a good editing program and the local hobby shop has the decal supply materials. My printer could not handle what I need. I did find some of the art work online in a high resolution file, and I am going to load the image in my editing program, re-size, print, then use spray adhesive to fasten the printout to tape, cut out the decal area, and have a tape on stencil to use so that I can airbrush the markings on the plane. that is an ambitious project for me since I am a virtual newb to the whole process of building/finishing. No guts, no glory??? got to break some eggs to make an omelet?? best wishes.

someone else here with way more experience may come along and provide some REAL help!

Images for L-39 Albatross decals

BTW, when you click on ANY image on that page, on the right side is a button for VISIT PAGE [the page where the image was taken from]. that can lead to another cache of information. takes time to sort out but hope it will somehow help?

Craig N,

Best wishes with that--it is really frustrating to be totally sold out on a build and find that no decals are available!
