Does anyone know if there is a way to convert decals in 1/72 scale to 1/200. I found decals i like but can't find them in anything but 1/72. I was thinking i could scan them and then use photoshop to edit them and then print the final product out on decal paper. Just not sure how to go from 1/72 to 1/200.

Well, first there's math... ;)

I've done this plenty of times, from 1/72 to 1/144. I can help you through it.

There's only two slightly tricky parts. First scan the decals. I'd recommend a resolution of no less than 300dpi. 600dpi is probably better, the but the file sizes are larger. If you want to print the whole sheet, just multiple the image size (inches or milimetres) by 72 to get 1:1 scale and then divide that number by 200 to get 1/200 scale. Then resize the image to match. Then print. You can try to adjust the resolution to remain 300dpi, but make sure it's independent of the image size (you might have to click a box in Photoshop). It doesn't really matter since the images are getting smaller rather than larger. If you were scanning from 1/72 to 1/48 you'd have more trouble.

You should also be aware of the difference between using white backed and transparent decal paper when printing off your decals. They can give you different results.

Greg, thank you for the excellent feedback. The math was the part i was not sure about. I scanned them at 600dpi and used photoshop to remove the existing background so that its transparent. I had already picked up some clear decal paper with intentions of using the same process minus the scale conversion for older kits that has decal sheets that are yellowed or old a brittle. I'll work on this and see how it works out, again thanks for the post.

Hi Greg, made the adjustments according to your instructions and test printed on regular paper and they fit just like they should, thanks for the instruction. I'll post pics if i even get the kit finished.

Glad to hear it worked and I look forward to the pics!

not sure if you know, but yellowed decals can be "bleached" by exposing them to sunlight. I've succesfully done this by taping them to a South facing window for some time (in a sealed bag if moisture is an issue) and for brittle decals there is this, which you might need to use on your home printed decals too (never used it myself) [img1]

Thanks for the info in the bleached decals, i'll have to try it out have many of them.

I've never tried that, personally, but I've heard that advice before as well.
