Default Requesting some Ventris help.

Does anyone have a scan of the optional black/white roll pattern decals for the Estes Pro Series II Ventris #9701 as itís shown on the kitís face card? Iíd like to replicate them with adhesive film.

Thanks!

I donít think they were optional, Gordon and Stickershock sold them as aftermarket, it looks like you can get the vinyl including shipping for under $12:

If you havenít used Stickershock before, I would bet your client or eventual buyer would be very happy.

I have used Stickershock. His vinyl decals are premium. Among others Iíve bought vinyl decals for the Estes Sentinel from him.

The reason I began this thread is because on page 4 of the Ventris instruction thereís a VERY small paragraph about ordering the optional roll pattern decals from estesrockets.com so I was just hoping that someone had actually done it and still had the decals. But since Iím mildly talented I can possibly extrapolate the roll pattern from the kitís face card and then slit it from black adhesive film.

That certainly is it. I was about to measure the roll pattern on my Ventris and give you dimensions, but that diagram has it perfectly done....and it seems to match what I have. I don't recall whether I got the decal from Estes or from Gordon.

Bob tried to get the decal from Estes as soon as the kit was released and was unsuccessful, so I assume only the painting guides were made available. You can find them all in the way back machine from early 2012.

I admire your dedication to recreate that decal by hand! Looking forward to the results.

Thanks, Iíll post it when Iím done. IF the white enamel I use matches the white adhesive film I have then I may do black and white wraps.
