Estes Sprint XL #7224 Build, Part 8, Decals
The fin grain still showed on two fin sides after the first light white coat. I rubbed in some CWF with a fingertip. The coat was thin so there wouldn't be much sanding.
These are all the decal you get! The original Sprint kit had two sheets for two different decors.
The big "meatball" decal is interesting to line up. The name on the bottom of the ring is set on a curve.
TIP: Stack some CD cases to get a straight flat line parallel with the table top. The tips of the "S" and "TM" in the "SPRINT XL TM" name are both equidistant over the top of the CD case.
Around the top of the body tube is the single black band.
Cut the top edge right at the black ink so you have nothing to trim off.
After the decal dried a black Sharpie was run over the top edge covering the white paint.
