Decal Renumber Sets $4.00

In the past, re-numbering a kit required the modeler to find matching paint, paint over the existing number, find decal numbers that are a close match to the lettering on the car, and then piece together a new number. We think we can offer a better solution.
Accurail's decals are printed over a base of car color and are a perfect match in style and size to the graphics printed on the car.  Please note that Accurail's decals are road numbers only.

Merely cut the new number out of the sheet and apply it directly over the existing number. In one easy step the old number is covered and a new number is in place. Each re-number set includes enough numbers to change 12 individual cars.

Please note, this service will be offered on new production only.  There have been too many changes in paint formulation for us to be able to match the color of many of our older kits.     View a typical decal sheet

 

Decal Instructions:

  • Cut the decal out carefully and, holding it with a fine pair of tweezers, soak in warm water for about 15 to 20 seconds.

  • Take the decal out of the water and slide it off the backing paper onto the car's surface where you wish it to be placed.

  • Move the decal carefully so that it doesn't tear, if it needs to be repositioned.

  • When in the correct position, carefully blot off any excess water.

  • If desired, setting solutions such as Micro Sol(tm) or Micro Set(tm) can be safely (but sparingly) used to make Accurail® decals conform more closely to irregular car surfaces.
  • Let dry completely before applying a finish or fixative such as Dull-Cote or a Gloss Coat to 'seal in' the decals.

  • If decals seem too delicate to begin with, we recommend applying  a coat of Microscale's Liquid Decal Film to the entire decal page and letting dry thoroughly before cutting out any numbers.
