lads i know this guy has been mentioned a few times in recent threads and posts and i think most times the general consensus was not a positive one...just wondered if it was a decal quality issue, or decals missing, or inaccurate, or what exactly was the problem? has anyone been satisfied with the product? seller name all_1one1_euro
cheers

I’ve recently bought some from him for a project. In short, they are home printed decals, they have to be cut to size, are somewhat transparent and so paint can show through from underneath, and don’t conform well on complex surfaces. They are somewhat expensive for what they are but he does cover subjects that others don’t. I’m a reluctant but occasional buyer from him as a result. Some years ago there were also concerns/issues with missing decals but over time i do think he listens to feedback and fills in the gaps. Hope that helps Billy.

At least if you make them youself you know that they will at least fit the model you build. If they were not 100%, at least you didnt pay for them

Make them yourself Billy. If you need help with any logos just post here and someone will have what you need

My own experience is that he prints onto white decal paper with a colour laser printer and the colouring is very poor. To get white lettering he will have the background body colour printed with white lettering. But you end up with white edging on the cut edge. Overall very poor and not worth much.

I have not used his decals, but I think it appears unanimous that his decals aren't great. What all aspects do people like or dislike about them? I don't mind drawing decals, but getting good reference can be difficult and time consuming, and where else can I get Davy Evans CoI 240rs livery etc? Perhaps using him and doing the corrective work isn't how it should be, but it would be a chance to get some stuff I'd love to have and otherwise wont! Is it just a matter of decal quality and sizing, or is there more issues?

The issues are colour quality and that he scans a lot of genuine decals sets and passes them off as his own. To achieve white lettering he prints on white decal paper with a laser printer and had the car body colour as a background which often does not match the actual paint colour.

All of Rorys points are valid having just used 2 sets for different projects.  Combined with the points i made in earlier responses you’d ask yourself “why would i do this?”. And the answer in in Davids question. As a reference guide and for some of the decals you can use its a good starting point - is it worth £15? No but quicker than starting from scratch.

I bought a few sets early on. The decals were badly sized, logos were missing and it looked as if there was minimal effort put in to creating the set. In fact, it looked like all that happened was someone had done an image search for logos and stuck them on a page. For the price, the quality is simply not there.

I also think the seller knows that some sets that they sell have not been covered, therefore buyers will "make do" just because there are no other off the shelf options.
