For a restauration project I need the tankdecals for this machine. Are they still available? Or can anyone help me with pictures/dimensions so I can recreate waterslide decals myself by computer? Help is very much apreciated!

Those are some of the best I've seen, Bert!

Could you take a full set of high quality photos showing these, perhaps with a rule on top of the tank showing the dimensions? Its not often we get to see original decals in such a good condition! Brilliant to see :P

WOW!

They are a reproducer's dream.

Use a tailor's or dress making tape...not a rule or strait etc.

Takes in the curves aye.

Hope you can

Cheers

Hi Bert, what sort of drawing package will you be using?

Regards,
Spiro

I don't print the decals myself, we have a company in Holland which print very nice waterslide decals.
They cannot print gold, but since I work with Photoshop it is possible to get nearly goldcolor.
The pictures are from a friend's machine.
Think, I go there again, take the measurements and start reconstruct the decals.
