Decals created by BAR's and Cloners
Have you become bored with the same, tired decals that still
have '60s coffee stains on them? So have we.
This page is for original artwork for making your own ink-jet
and laser decals. If you see something you like, download it and
If you've become SO tired of the old stuff that you have already
created your own decal sheets, we'd like to see your work and
post them here for others to enjoy.

problems opening any of the files by clicking on them, it's more
thank likely due to your browser not setup to display TIFF

link of the file you want. Choose to "Save Target As" from
the menu that pops up. You can then save the file directly
to your hard drive where you can open it with your favorite
||Aero-Fin should have the lower
2" - 3" painted a matching green, with the rest of the body
white. All of the decals should go on the white areas.
||The Alpha is standard white,
one black fin, and red nose.
||White overall, with alternating
black (or dark blue) fins, and a dark blue or black nose
cone. Match the nose to the fins.
The large decals go on the booster fins. If the colors on
the fins are white-fin, black-fin, then two decals go on one
fin, both faces. If the fins are painted one-side-white,
one-side-black (blue), then the decals go on the white side
of the fins.
The name strip goes on the sustainer, typically with the "A"
end toward the rear. Use one or both strips. Both should fit
on a BT-20 tube cleanly, but if not, then the whole decal
might be reduced about 10-15% without a loss of detail (such
as it is). Alternately, only use one name strip.
||The Avenger is all white,
except for the nose cone, which should be painted to match
the green of the decal.
||The old Estes logo iron-on
re-designed for us BAR's.

Big Bertha K-23
||The Big Bertha is white, with
black nose and two black fins (opposing fins -- black,
white, black, white).
||The Cougar should be white
overall, with blue lower body (including fins).
||The Drifter is all white, with
red nose cone and either red or blue fins.
||The Laser should be painted an
electric blue for the decals to show up correctly.
|The "Loadstar" image runs along
the sustainer body, and the tri-stars can go on the booster
fins. Craig created mirror images of the tri-stars so they
could be placed on both sides of the fins. Each sheet
includes ONE copy of each unique decal and the user should
make a selection of which image(s)to use. Copy-n-paste the
selections onto a new image sheet as needed to create the
final decal artwork.

||The Micron is all white. The
color comes from the decal. This is a variation of the
original scheme, and the decal can also be used on other
||I created a "new" decal sheet
for the Payloader, based on the original catalog photo. A
simple B&W image. Color scheme for the Payloader is solid
white, no additional color trim. The decal itself is the
only color break. Check out the '62 Centuri catalog, page
12, from the Ninfinger files, to see the original scheme to
compare with and get the general idea of the layout
(64cen12.jpg). This can be printed on either CLEAR or WHITE
decal paper. The checkerboard decal also includes those two
bars, top and bottom, as one piece. The name and logo decal
runs lengthwise, ending about 1" below the checkerboard set
(this decal was not in the original pattern). One of the
remaining bars goes 2" up from the bottom, and the last one
needs to be cut into three pieces -- length to fit between
the fins. These get placed at the bottom of the tube.
||The Ranger is a special image.
It needs to be divided up into two sets, one for printing on
clear decal paper, and one for white paper. The inverted
images of the numbers and the logos should be on the white
sheets. The scheme is a white body, with each fin white on
one side, black on the other. The reversed images go on the
black side. The nose cone is red.
||New decal artwork for the Centuri Starfire. Can also be used
Estes Calypso. Paint scheme is red, orange or blue fins and
nose cone, white body. The top edge of the big wrap (one of
the double bars) should be about 1/16" down from the top end
of the tube. Print the fin decals (the flaming stars) on
white decal paper. The others can be printed on clear or
white (they'll be on a white background in any event).
