I think I know the source of the decals. The Confente decals are varnish fix; so I hope they don't end up in the wrong place. The Baylis decals are the very first printing of that version of decals; the problem is th ey are pretty much unusable. They are waterslide decals that were screen printed by a company that knew nothing of making decals. They are so fr agile that once the hit the water they begin to break into tiny pieces a nd float away. There is no way they will come off the paper in one piece and for sure they will not make it to a frame intact. Whatever money is paid for them, they are usable for frame decals. Did I plan this to hap pen? No; it's just a happy accident.
