Wanted Wanted Comanche decals

Just as the title says...

They need to be really nice, or a set of old ones will do.

As it appears that theses decals are NLA, If I were to reproduce them, Would there be any interest?

There aren’t too many folks out there with a Comanche. So a decal sheet is a tall order, how do you propose to reproduce them?

I live in Central America, we can do things that in the USA the cost and quantity
would be insane, whereas here, you can have few made. Same goes for other models.

Why are there so few people with Comanche's? Did they sell in small numbers? or...too many crashes?
I think it is one Cox's great models, a bruising cruiser, lovely to take off and land Very Happy

There were a few different variants. The earlier had a horizontally oriented engine-cylinder.. and much nicer detailing. There would be at least three different decal-sets.. depending on the models' production-year.

These photos may not be in chronological order..

The main theme would be the larger plane, the 1.5, as that is all I have handy to copy.

If someone would lend me a set of any other, can have another, at no expense

Great photos of the variants Roddie!

Hopefully I will get somewhere with the project. What kind of material does it need to be?
Don't know how many owners keep flying them...so normally, we do decals in 3M premium for our automotive restorations.

Fuel proofing? Really do not know, as when we flew the planes in the day, the decals would outlive the planes!
