Not sure if this should be posted in the Classifieds thread or not, but I ruined both ''mesh" decals to be used with Tamiyas Carrera GT due to the brittleness causing tears.

I had seen a that there was a company that made an aftermarket verstion of this part that came pre-formed to fit the shape using PE(i think) and doing away with the decal all together.

Does anyone have any advice.

ps I did try forming my own from mesh PE and didnt have much luck :shakehead

Is this the aftermarket set you're talking about.

By the shape, looks like it has the PE for each half of the engine cover.

I had a really hard time shaping it to the correct shape. I may need to try that again, but there was a company that made the part already in the correct form

hey man ,
I remembered that detail part you mentioned , so i browsed through my back issues of TMMI and i Found IT!!!
its from ACU.STION and at the time www.grandprixmodels.com was listed as the supplier (that was 11 years ago). It is ,as you mentioned pre-formed, and only requires trimming and gluing, there is however a slight inaccuracy in the pattern of the mesh- it is square mesh instead of the correct hexagonal.
Anyway good luck with that...
