Hi All,

If anyone has build the Airfix Dinah and didn't use the overall gray option, I need the tail markings (the chrysanthemum rising over the river.) I'm building the Hasegawa kit, but it turns out the old decals I had from the LS kit are garbage..in fact I'm gonna now be forced to strip and repaint the entire vertical tail. Unfortunately I masked and sprayed all the rest of the markings, so I'm kind of committed to this scheme!

Thanks!

Similar, but not quite. The insignia I need has wings on the side. Here's my attempt to use the decal from an old LS kit. It refused to lay down, and the edges of the printing started to curl.

I have these old ESCI decals as a last resort, but I'm not sure how well they'll perform (I coated them liberally with MicroScale Liquid Decal Film after testing another decal on the sheet, with shattered into a million pieces as soon as it got wet.) Plus as you can see, the registration isn't that great and the white not very opaque.

This is part of a pic of the Airfix decal sheet I found online. I might have to change the rudder to red, but I've gotta strip and repaint the tail anyway. I used so much Solvaset the decal is thoroughly melted into the paint.

I will keep an eye out, but I sold my Airfix Ki-46 a few months ago.

Thanks..sorry for the tardy reply. A kind-hearted soul over on Hyperscale had some spares and sent them to me. I haven't tried them out yet..I set the project aside for a bit to decompress.
