Looking to be a good build. 8)

When this came up originally I tentatively inquired with the same plan as you.

Never heard anything back from the MF re decals. With a bit of browsing and some cunning copy/paste I found you could recreate the decals fairly easily.

This is as far as I got mocking up the decals:

Pretty sure I got the Monolith one somewhere

Re the fade - Sounds ace 8) 8) 8)

No worries squire :D

The paint by font is not quite right but it looks fine for the chainstay.

I will have a look for the Monolith one though :-)
