Posted in case anyone wants to do the build also.

I have done a test print on an HP Laserjet P1102W on typing paper. Looks good in Black and Gray scale.

Need to cut them out and fit on the vehicle.

When I get waterslide paper, I plan to take it to Office Max or Office Depot for a color laser print. I hope they can print white if not then I will have to paint the white backgrounds.

I only have a color inkjet. Those were too thick and fragile the last time I made decals.

Edit: Also posting the image here is poor man's cloud computing if my windows seven system finally dies :cry: , there is a copy here.

Test printed the decals using a non-color laser printer on typing paper and taped them down.

Going to make NASA on the vertical fins and GI Joe on the engines smaller. Increase the size of USAF, the roundel on the wings and the two crests either side of the nose.

Still need to make a display for the FMS, radio, first aid kit and decide if I am going to use the stock panel or build one up. Guess I should make decals for the stock panel anyway.

Seems rude to offer up a livery for the exterior and not do the cockpit.

Edit: Removed the Star Command crest and Xl-15 from each wing using 1500 grit sandpaper.

and was disappointed that Dark Voyager didn't fit with his helmet.

I ordered the Hasbro Fortnite Astronauts, greatly discounted.

[Rant] If Classified and Legends are going to the same packaging as the Hasbro Fortnite figures that is horrible. [/Rant]

They too will not fit with their helmets on. He doesn't fit well but does fit

Looks like he has a severed head.

She fits but with the Biker Scout armor belt her hips are wider than his. Image

She has slightly larger hands than he does!!!????

This really feels like a government project now.

At first, I thought they were the same hands but No.

Perhaps the hands were swapped at the factory. NO! Their hands have different pegs.

For those that wanted to see the two seat cockpit for smaller figures.

Just as was postulated over on Hisstank, removable and with electronics.
