  • Red Hull Waterline Decals ?

    I am looking for a source of 1/96 scale hull waterline numbered decals in maroon/red.

    I’ve tried making them myself using water transfers I created at home and very quickly learnt the clear doesn’t show up on a black background.

    I understand Becc may have previously sold them in red
    but have now discontinued with only white and black available ...

    Any suggestions please ... ??

    Get two sets of numbers, white and red. Put the white down first then red. On my walrus, I made my own decals red numbers and black surrounding it. I painted white down first, then applied decals. Needed to blend the black of the decal into the black used for the hull.
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
