i had some decals made for my TTTT project and threw in some for my overland and racer at the same time. they turned out well with the exception of the long window banners, i made them just slightly too long:rolleyes: you can't get everyting right.

:D from who else but the great and powerful mini z:D

seriously, thanks. they turned out great. the ones for my 1:87 look really good. the overlland and racer decals were just icing on the cake;)

the decals were made by creating the graphics on the computer, i then forwarded my work to mini z who, ou t of the kindness of his great heart, had them cleaned up and reproduced as professional quality decals. you have to check out my 1:87 man decals in my album to understand the tiny scale and quality of the decals.

i created mine and had them professionally produced by mini z! this makes them one of a kind....mini z still has the template and i'm sure would make more (you can email him and ask) but he already has his own mzr decals now in the shop, and they look very nice. (i ordered somemyself!)

i got a chance to apply some of the mini z decals i bought from the shop...the sharpness is good, several sizes to choose from. the quality is very good as well. 1 set of even smaller logo's would be nice to fit in some tight spots...other than that, i'm happy with them. i even replaced some of the custom mini z decals i had made on my cr5 and overland. you can't see them on my ol as they are covered by mud, hehe.

see me on the racer (http://mini-zracer.com/gallery/album86/IMG_0011)

Dude! The logo type and the "Z" is completely WRONG!
It's looks like someone elses logo! Why didn't you just copy the logo off of the website (even if just for a template)?
I hate to be picky, but a company's identity should remain solid and consistent. Brand Marketing is everything, especially with domains like: mini-Zracing; miniZ-racing; etc. There's enough similarities elsewhere to add to the confusion. Let's not water down the company image.

I'm too close to the whole logo thing and I'm being over critical, so take this with a grain of salt.;)
