After 2 months of scorching hot temperatures and the garden taking a hit, it started raining on Friday with accompanying thunder and lightning, Saturday was back to hot sun again, but rained in the evening, today it has rained non stop. At least it has soaked the dried up garden and cooler temps at night for an easier sleep. Forecast is for more heatwave next week, so summer is still with us.

Have been using vaping for some time now, kicked the cigarettes and have been using the least nicotine level for some time. Today as I had just run out of e-liquid, I bought some Menthol flavour liquid with no nicotine content, so slowly kicking the nicotine habit. Back home tried the new liquid, and it is fine.

Plastic Model Decals

Last year I needed some out of print decals, so bought some inkjet water slide decal paper. Found the images I needed and printed them out, so far so good. Had to spray the prints with acrylic lacquer to seal them from when soaked in water. Got the job done and a satisfactory job on my model.

A year later, the decals have faded so badly that I need to replace them. Spoke to the local Colour Graphics chap today and he said he would print an A4 sheet for £1, so have ordered some laser water slide paper 5 x White and 5 x Clear, worth a try.

Should arrive next week, so will let you know how it goes.

Took the new paper and artwork down to Color Grafix and they said that they could not risk damaging the Laser printer drum as the paper looked a bit too glossy in their opinion. Suggested try a home laser printer. Given up the idea now, just glad the new paper was not expensive.
