I have been researching acrylic paints, supplies and techniques because like many here I have been inspired by Trolls Kirk's work with acrylics. I fould the following site which shows a very interisting way to transfer images. My applolgies if this is in the thread but I have not gotten all the way through yet.

Some years ago I helped a friend who was building a model of Union Station in WWII era Omaha. He was looking for signage to post around the station and this is what I came up with. These could work for post war years as well I reckun.

For modellers of the present day, Ford Europe has announced this new sports car, twin front furnaces and rear wheel drive. Will probably sell well in Canada too.
