Vinyl Graphics for Ares
« on: January 08, 2017, 04:55:15 PM »
Charles I'm sure you have  seen the original Ambroid Ares kit box. On the box is a drawing of a chicken (I think) wearing a Greek war helmet and holding a sword. Could you make up this graphic for the Ares I'm working on now? Also what about the original "Ares" script? Your Pal, PhillySkip

Skip,

I'm sure I can get that chicken someplace? I have original Ares plans from the 60's, I'll look and see if it's on the plans?

I should have the Ares "text." I've made it a few times, along with the graphics/trim on the model.

Thanks for thinking of CFC Graphics.

That's what I was looking for the image in the lower left hand corner. Thanks for looking into it for me!  How about 2 of those 6'' tall in red to "match" Rustoleum Gloss Protective Enamel? ....and the Ares Script (not sure of size yet)....Thanks,PhillySkip

Skip,

Double check your measurements on the logo, the larger the easier it is for me to make the graphic.

The largest I could use would be 8" tall and they would sit squarely in the center of a wing panel.

Skip,

I think I said I have the Ares text? Not sure though. I also have the graphics, but I was given the wrong measurements.

They came out a tad small on the model.

An easy fix with new measurements.

How's the other model coming?

I'll draw that chicken logo this week. I need a bit of time on this one. Better art would save me some time.

But I can work with what I have.

Red. It would have to have an outline. Black.

The wings and flaps are white Monokote at present .Fuse and tail are still in tissue and dope.Waiting to silver coat for good weather. I'm not sure of the final colors yet but black and red graphics would work. I'd like a large "Ares" chicken on the left wing with the name Ares large on the right wing.....Skip

Skip,

Is your Ares going to be silver and are you using spray equipment?

Did you know I use aerosol cans and water base plastic modeler's paint for colors shot through an airbrush.?

Anyway, I dug up an old can of Dupli-Color silver which I used to touch up scratches on a car wheel. I plan on using it for a few cockpit pieces.

Anyway, I see on the can the product comes from the "Makers of Krylon products."

Understandable why it's a good product. I might do some tests with Dupli-Color. I know many modelers use it.

When will your Ares get painted?

The Ares will get it's "filler coat" (talc, clear dope,thinner,and some silver dope) when the weather gets warmer and I can paint outside. The wings and flaps are finished in white Monokote. I'll probably paint the rest of the plane with Rustoleum white protective enamel.and trim with red enamel. Rustoleum works great for me.

Skip,

I finally finished drawing that Ares logo.

Hope I can sell a few of them to offset the labor. I had to draw it from scratch.

Now I have to see how my cutter deals with the vectored art. Sometimes changes have to be made because some areas are tiny.

Anybody interested in an Ares logo?

Skip,

I have that scheme in vector format for cutting, but never cut one for an Ares. I can cut one in any color but I would need measurements.

I had an Ares as a kid, it's a great looking model.

Logo is done. I have to see how it cuts. Looks great!

Skip,

I stock one red, the best red.

Couple of ways to do this graphic. The black you see can be red. Or, the white you see can be red. Then the black can be black or some other color.

If you don't use a color for the white in the graphic, it will be whatever color you place the graphic on.

I suggest having a two color graphic, even if the background, or "fill" color is white.

Maximize the size, this will make cutting easier. I'm not sure all of it will cut? Sometimes adjustments have to be made. Especially when you draw the graphic from scratch.

Skip,

You may also want to consider all uppercase or upper and lower. Could send one of each. Placed on the model for a visual.

You must be close to covering and paint? recent photo if there's changes.

Skip,

Double check the size of the chicken logo so it will be as large as possible. Two of each, model tops and bottoms?

E-mail me your address.
