We are a
South Australian business primarily
involved in the production of short print run decals for scale model
There are three
portals for the sale of
DEK L's unique decals:
(Clicking these links will open the page in a new window).
My online store - All
can be found here at my squaresite store. Purchases are safe and secure
using the power of
Square to reach customers worldwide. Prices here are
better than my Ebay store as it is free of many of the ebay fee
With an excellent selection of Australian aviation related
modelling 'goodies' including kits, decals, aftermarket PE, resin... and
more. It's everything for the Aussie modeller. Well worth a look.
Southern Sky Models also has an Ebay presence!
If you use Ebay, please use the cart function
and 'request a
total from the seller'. This function allows me to provide you a combined
postage rate and saves a lot of time, effort and ebay messaging.
My primary focus is on Australian Military
Aircraft and World Aerobatic Teams. You will
notice some divergence from this which will include decals for Anime, Mecha, Sci-Fi,
Cars, Trucks, Armour, Ships and even decals for
powered scale models as well.
first decals I produced in 2005 were printed using an ALPS
printer. In 2005 this was considered antiquated, however at the
time there were limited options for 'short print run' producers.
In 2014 I began using a specialist laser printer, however this
required that decals be printed 'white side up'. In 2019 I
invested in another digital laser printer which has the ability to
print 'right side'. All my current decals are marketed as DEK
L'S II and are printed in this way.
I appreciate and
empathise with the views of fellow modellers and wish to provide a quality
product in quantities or scales and of subjects that some larger
enterprises either cannot or will not. I am happy to hear your
suggestions, ideas and ( of course) your feedback, but please do not be
offended if I don't reply quickly - as I have a full-time job and a young family so
need to maintain balance (and sanity)
graphic design process is not as easy as many expect and as such, the
'time vs cost' calculation quickly makes 'one offs' untenable. Those
with a need for specific custom decals, should try their hand with a
free vector graphic program such as 'Inkscape' to create the artwork
themselves and save as a Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG). Raster (ie JPG
or BMP) versions of artwork are unacceptable. Once artwork is created,
approach me for printing cost - you will be surprised at how little it
costs if you do the artwork yourself. Be aware - any artwork is
submitted to me for reproduction or review, must be free of any claim of
ownership. The originator immediately relinquishes right of use of that
graphic design to me, for any purpose I see fit. Do not submit your
design work to me, unless you agree to this. This provision allows me
the ability to work on similar or related works with confidence.
a scale model for display in your local RSL or RAAFA? As an ex-serving
member you will find that I am more than happy to help you along your
way with the project. If you staff your request through one of your
organisation's committee members (preferably the secretary) I will
consider providing limited services at no cost.
