Have to stick in my
two cents again.
I did my graphics
in Cadd (Visual Cadd) where I could do them "full
size". I printed them at home on paper and fitted
them to the plane to be sure I liked the look on
the plane then took them to a local sign shop
where they printed the vinyl for me matching the
colors and size perfectly. Loved the job, and was
able to do some pretty fine lines (note the yellow
lines that taper to nothing between the darker
colored ones). They were able to use the CADD
files directly from a USB drive I suppled.
The best part of
doing it this way was they could easily print the
long fuselage graphics in one piece!
Here's a jpg copy
of the cadd screen for the winglet design, and..
second, a photo of the winglet with the paper
copies that I printed to check for fit and
appearance, and last, the finished vinyl job. I
decided to change the N number's location when I
applied them so it wouldn't be on the rudder and
still be fairly large.
I didn't notice it
looked like Terry's until I went to RR two years
ago! It wasn't intentional...we must just think

All of the graphics on “Cat’s
Meow” are vinyl and they have held up very
well.. When it comes time, I will use vinyl
formthe graphics on the plane I am building.
P.S. I also stink at painting...
I used a paint mask for all my
lettering and numbers. The local sign
shop made mine. You put it on and peel
off the top layer. Sand and paint, then
pull off the rest. Worked perfect and is
very easy to do.
was planning to use vinyl for my
numbers and graphics.... any
recommendations for or against
vinyl numbers / graphics?
Seems like vinyl
would be the best rout
