Re: PC: decals


I have tried to get PC worm decals for MP-54s. I tried scaling some photos
and got some numbers of  0.2 inches high and 0.128 inches high.  Don't know
if these are correct.  Maybe someone can help with more accurate
dimensions.  Anyway, most decal companies wanted at least $50.00 or more to
make a batch of 20 to 25 sheets of worms.
