1/18 Decals

Hi guys,

! am in the process of repainting a 1/18 F-18 Hornet and have decided to decal it in the RAAF 20th Anniversary Scheme. My question is this. I have and old set of 1/48 decals of the scheme and wonder can these be scanned and resized to 1/18 scale whilst retaining clear definition ? Would an ALPS printer be the appropriate way to reproduce. As I have never seen any !/18 decals to purchase for these large aircraft or even attempted to do this size myself,  any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Steve, if you scan the decals at 600 or even 900 dpi you should be able to blow them up a bit, but I don't think blowing them up to 1/18 will do them any good. Rough edges, register misalignment issues, etc will come into play.

I suggest you re-draw them in let's say: Adobe Illustrator if you can. Or even Microsoft Word of Powerpoint.
