My pleasure. Here are some more decal images. B&W best on laser. Obviously the color ones do on an inkjet.

Cheers!!

Vincent- you are the man! Where do you get all these decals? Is there somewhere online you can go for them? I know there was somebody on ebay selling them...but I was going to try to find them online before I spent the money. Thanks again!!

I did them in PowerPoint. Basis graphics. Nothing more.

The trick to these is less about graphics and more about finish, which as a shaky old man with bad eyes is the challenge. If you're young enough to be "finishing school", you should do well.

To tell you the truth to do it right custom pose some of the oline instead of them being all the same you would be looking at probably $100 per team member but it would be alot of work.

Allstar,

Aside from the Willy Roaf (and its iterations) what other subjects make for offensive linemen?

I have repainted a Mawae as Dirt and Roaf as Faneca, but I haven't seen anything else that would look OLish out there.

Reggie White might possibly. I got one and am going to do an Ernie Holmes so I have the Curtain. Haven't decided on the subject for LC yet. Welcome suggestions. Am doing Maddog from a modified Lambert bottom and a Mean Joe top.

Thats about all the line poses out there I would cut and sculpt new parts in to vary the poses

Any of you guys that have done customs I have a few questions if ya don't mind.

I found a real cheap Jake Plummer figure on ebay with the same armbands, etc... as Big Ben. Do you think this would make a decent figure for Ben?

Also, does anybody have the decals for the throwback unis? I have most of them, but I don't think I have the right sleeves for the throwback. Thanks!
