i did 1 of my model wheelhouse out with the pics of electronics from the fishing news/irish skipper adverts, the screens are about same size, also sea angler magazine is glossy and has lots of adverts

How about taking photos ,or scanning from brochures then scaling them to size on your computer before printing on to photo paper or slide transfer media

I would like to print on to Decal Ink Jet paper which I purchased yesterday, but dont have a clue where to begin? Is it possible to create the shading that is seen on the registration of fishing boats when printing on to this ink jet decal paper. Do I need some kind of programme? thanks fo help:confused:

when we piut the stickers on our boat we use 2 sets, 1 white on top and 1 coloured underneath so they overlap and look like shading so u could print 2 and do it that way

Here's a thought guys , if you've a camera handy in the wheelhouse take photos of the screens of the radar/plotter/sounder and post them in the reference pics section of the gallery that way anyone can print them out to scale for a model.
