The markings are looking very fine Magnus, congrats on Santa getting you the means to make your own masks! I sympathise with your view on decals, I feel they are fast becoming an outmoded method at least for markings and insignia. I imagine stencils and such smaller stuff will have to remain in decal form for a while yet....
True Paul, but I have an idea that would/could even produce those items as masks. The real issue would be that they probably wouldn't be able to be used. So the idea will be restricted to those masks that are too small to cut (this is more because of the low tack nature of the material, rather than the ability of my cutter) but that can still be used. For the real small stuff, stencil data etc, then the way forward is HGW's new decal method or dry transfers. The same can be said for nose art but I can produce some using masks, such as the "Belle" (Memphis Belle).
Yep looking good Magnus.
A possible tip for the small stuff, try making the stroke width a bit wider (towards the center, to keep the width). The problem with doing this is that the centers of the likes of "A", "9", "4" etc will be smaller. But the your cutter won't struggle as much to produce straight and parallel lines. It is also often better to weed items with small centers after they have been transferred as there is very much less chance of the centers being out of place.
Is it possible to adjust the "offset angle" on your machine? Assuming that it uses "drag knifes"?
