Dean, I forgot to mention the T-shirt iron paper comes in two different types. one for dark shirts or for light colored shirts. I use the paper for dark shirts. I like it better because it is kinda a vinyl type stuff and when heated the ink melts into it.Use your covering iron to apply the decal. I have put fuel on it and it doesn't run or soak in, when cleaning your plane, Windex dosen't affect it either. also it can take some heat so if you put the decal in a place where you may need to re-tighten your covering you can.
Gotta love it when a plane comes together

Re: Printing Stickers...

From Modellers Choice here in Hamilton I got a water transfer decal sheet for the inkjet printer. "EXPERTS-CHOICE Decal, Item No.122" They also had one for lazer printers. You should be able to get it from any hobby shop tailoring to the model railroad guys.

Just print the decal with inkjet, then you have to clear coat it with special stuff. I did not buy the special clear coat, just used what I had on hand. After it dries, it works like any water transfer decal. Put it in water to loosen and slide it into place. The film is very clear and almost dissapears after a clear coat on the heli or plane.

They also had the same stuff in white rather than clear because the inkjet can not print white.
