    Default CIRCUS CITY DECALS Question?

    I have a question regarding Circus City decals. They appear to look very crisp, but before purchasing and applying them, I'd like some comments from those who have used them. How do the react to MicroSol and MicroSet solutions? I'm thinking of repainting and decaling locomotives from the Unstoppable film, but I would rather have background on quality and toughness of these decals. There would be quite a bit of door sills and shapes for the decals to adhere properly. I just don't want to be stock with a couple of SD40-2s that I would have to repaint and decal if decals were not quite up to standards. Thanks for any assistance.

    Sorry that this is so late, I just stumbled upon this post. Circus City decals are fantastic...very crisp, very highly thought of by the folks that model Green Bay and Western. I may have them do some custom decals for me as well.

    I do wish he had a slightly better quality printer. The printing on the decals I got wasn't as crisp as I'd like. I know yellows can be tough.

    This was exactly my experience with the decals I had him print (see my Jubilee thread under steam motive power) The yellow border around the red panels is fuzzy and the red panels themselves are washed out and blotchy ! Having said that, The service was exilant. VERY helpful with my terrible artwork and fast responses to emails. The decals were in the post to me two days after I first contacted him. The decals themselves are very robust and easy to apply. They withstand Microsol and Microset and despite there thickness they form nicely over rivets and other small details. If it wasn't for the colour problem I would give them 10/10

    Not in any way terrible and I'm happy, just not crisp and rich in colour. I hope this helps.
