I would get the JBOT ones, but it lists 1/2200-1/2500, so I envisioned they were made for the encounter set. Has anyone tried these on the 1/2500 D7s? Not selling?? They were on the list and could be added to the cart.

I just tried again, and I can get it in the cart, but with a red "X" to the left of it, and when I try to check out it returns with a letter of apology for being behind on stock.
(I'd be willing to "take one for the team" to find the size of this decal -- I was going to order it to try to "make it fit" on a non-Klingon Romulans ship. When I had an Encounters kit, I scaled the D-7 as 1/2000 by placing the aft hull part over Jeffries's comparison drawing on the cover of The Star Trek Sketchbook where the 200 foot mak is 1.2 inches long. By similar measurements I put the Johnny Lightning D-7 at either 1/2200 or 1/2300, (I forget) and I think the R2 kit is the same size.)

For those curious about the Romulan D7 decals and whether they will fit on the 1/2500 TOS Cadet Series kits, I recently received an email from Jim Botaitis from JBOT Decals:
My site will be up and running in January. You are welcome to place your order then, using the shopping cart.
Those decals should fit, yes.

how well did the ones I printed for you fit?

Picture reused from a previous El Gato post...

Against my hopes, this thread (my largest) has been mostly inactive over the last year or so. I'd like to get this restarted and kick off some other projects. To that end, I've resubmitted my previously posted pictures to all the pages of this thread -- curse you photobucket! :evil:

The last count indicated 23 marked complete and 25+ in some state of progress. The marked completed ones may get some touch-ups and upcoming progress (tend to wait for a batch to be completed before posting pictures) on in-work ones. This thread will continue for non-special (not lighted, etc.) 1/2500 kits from the TOS era (or earlier) which should end up numbering at least 50 kits (mostly Federation coming up) before it is done.

In the picture above, the 3 Klingon ships to the right have your decals with varying displays of subtlety (excuse my poor photography) - they fit well. There was a Romulan one which I did not finish - I tore/ruined the feather decal along the top front and have not continued. I also haven't yet acquired the 2 other Romulan ones from JBot since the site still does not allow purchases, but I'm hoping to get them as well.

They printed problem-free and I was able to finish 3 (2 of the larger 25m Tholians) as shown as the rightmost 3 in the picture above (excuse my poor photography).

Also, I was thinking about starting up a regular quiz on some random sci-fi vehicle(s) for guesses (should this be via PM until the results are revealed?) on what it is/where it appeared (should they be easy, extremely obscure, somewhere in-between, varies), etc., potentially turning it into a contest (how should points be determined?). When the identity is revealed, we can discuss topics like specifications, capabilities, etc. to build up a potential library with a consensus "best guess" of things like size, etc. It also opens up discussions on the movie/episode, etc. What do you guys think?
