KH7

Post by Toby Hall »

Does anyone know of a source for the KH7 F-N-R decal? I'm in the middle of resurrecting one. [helpsos.gif]

Toby I agree that model does warrant decals. The Wizard WH7 model also had similar decals.

Years back, I was also looking around for a set but came up empty. As a result, I designed my own and took the prints to a local label company that simply scanned them and provided what I needed. I wanted die-cut vinyl versions originally but had to be satisfied with the cheaper water applied versions.

In the end it worked out well as the proximity of them did not result in any damage from scrapes.

I think I got them from American outboard Salvage, but had to call for the F N R since they are not listed on their website.

Toby, you might find those letters in a craft store that sells stickers, ie : Hobby Lobby.

I've got some decal transfer printer "paper", that I've had luck with before, so I'm going to give that a go.
Does anyone have a picture of an original KH7 lower cowl, showing the F-N-R?
I've seen some that look red and others that look white. I think white is how they were originally. :?:

Toby, The decals on my KH7 are red with a white border. Not sure if that is correct or not.

Yes, red with a faint white border is what my KH-7 is also.

Not sure yet Bob. I'm going to line it up and see if I can't figure it out. The PO had cut a notch in the bottom front of the lower cowl too, which I
patched up. I just wish I had lined things up before I painted it! [swearing.gif]

As I recall, if you order a set of WH7 Wizard decals from American Outboard it has the F N R decal. So they'd probably sell you one.
Unfortunately I can't look as my WH-7 is at the bottom of the Suwanee river! [yeahthat.gif]

How did you find that much clean bench space in your shop to lay out all the KH7 parts?
