Hi all, picked up a flooded (there was mud up to the damn light ballast...) PotC recently and have been fitting it back together slowly... I've got a new compass decal as less than 10% of mine was left, and a new ship plastic, as there was a large hole bashed straight through mine.
I've scraped off what's left of the original compass decal, and then cleaned the metal disk, but I've never applied decals before. Is there any technique, etc to applying it? Should I prepare the disk in a certain way? (sanded rough, or smooth, or?) Has anyone tried putting mylar over their decal to protect it, or would that ruin the grip?
Is there any way to protect my new ship from being beaten through like the old one? It seems weird that the ball actually hits it... Does anyone have a use for my old, beaten one?
Anyone got any spare plastics lying around? A few of mine are broken and they're all really scratched up. (novus didn't do much)
Can someone tell me where the -11 plastic (concave semicircle of blue) goes?
Long shot, but has anyone ever scanned their cab decals? My cab is currently just black paint
Can't wait to get it all together. I've only played a PotC once in my life, and it was at the local league finals... I didn't know what I was doing but half an hour later I had the compass completed, and couldn't figure out how to start Four Winds before I drained. (the shot is 'award lit compass ARROW', but it's not an arrow! I was quite annoyed when I found out...)
