Accurail® 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 match in style and size to the graphics printed on the car.

Please note that Accurail's decals are road numbers only.  View a typical decal sheet

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.

This service is offered on new production only and not all decals will remain in stock indefinitely.  Changes in paint formulation may eventually make matching some colors on older kits impossible.

 

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, moving it very carefully so that it doesn't tear.

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

  • 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 decals dry completely before applying a finish or fixative such as Dull-Cote or a Gloss Coat to 'seal in' the decals, otherwise they will eventually come loose.

  • 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.
