    I've been in touch with arty_pharty on eBay - he's the seller who produces Tilley decals - and he supplies them for other manufacturer's like Bialaddin but doesn't list them all. I've asked for details of all the other models he has decals for so when I get a reply I'll post it here.

    Hi

    The waterslide decals are rather easy to print out yourself. Most hobby shops and special retailers sell the A4 sheets of water decal blank paper. I think you need a laser printer but not sure about that. Anyway a simple program such as MS PAINT is capable of intricate artwork, many graphic programs are free to download as well.

    That is good news. I bought a PL53 vinyl sticker from him before and was pleased with the accuracy and quality. It will be interesting to see what he has available.

    A waterslide decal (or transfer as I've always known them) will really make my Bialaddin 320 complete!

    Thanks Handi-man, I don't know why I never thought about looking for waterslide printer paper before but I now have 5 sheets coming my way!

    As I already have the artwork ready, printing my own 320 decals should be simply a matter of getting the size correct.
