I am in need of finding good resources or websites for buying decals for any scale. Looking to decal a A-10A in different markings than what came in the box, as they are ruined as it is from a kit I picked up from a vendor at a good price during a show. Also, what is the best way or suggestions for custom decals? I am currently working with a 1/48th scale. Any advice is appreciated.

Hi Scott,

Sorry for your decals woes.

Here are good how-to articles about preserving/repairing old decals, or making your own.

But those ideas are not really what you asked for. Here are some custom decals makers:
