    Got home after dark & I didn't want to maiden her in the dark. Not a fan of the plain white upper chassis so I threw together some temporary threads for "Nemesis" until I find something more suitable. Not the right name or intended colors but just what I had on hand at the moment...

    Thanks. Yes ordered the decals from diylettering.com. Those were some of my spares. Stripes are just a set that came with one of my P3 birds.

    I like how you put your FAA designation on the landing gear. Now I know where to put mine :)

    The "Dirty Bird" letters on my P4 are .8" high x 2.5" wide. The FAA number decal font is .25" H x 2.00" W. The finished product is .96" H x 2.66" W to account for the white background. These are 3M Premium vinyl on solid white background so they are basically a self-stick decal. The white is glossy so it blends in pretty well on a P4. Not quite as much on a P3 because the shell is matte but you only notice up close.

    At this size the name decals are $1.03 each & the FAA decals are .33 each. If you want them to truly look professional you can get the letters only with no background. They come aligned on a sheet weeded & ready to install. Just peel the backing, align & press, then peel off the alignment sheet. You will want to order them ready-to-install. The name decals run $4.77 each this way. Not sure about the FAA # but I would just order the decal-style for those. They are easily removable and, until you fully press them down, repositionable. Lots of colors & font options to choose from. Note that silver & gold look like real silver & gold. Don't go for the reflective tape background as the white appears silvery & stands out plain as day on the shell. You may want to order a few extras in case you make a mistake applying them or to adorn your RC, case, etc..
