Title: RCAF car decal
Post by: Baden Guy on August 29, 2015, 14:54:15
I would like to a put an Air Force decal on the back window of my car but I am not handy to a Canex or military base.
My efforts to find a source online have failed.
Anyone have any ideas.
I live in the GTA and Borden is probably my nearest base.
FYI the Air Force Museum in Trenton doesn't show any decals online.

The Shearwater Aviation Museum used to carry a lot of stuff like that, they don't have photos of their stock online, but it's worth a call to see if they have what you're looking for - http://www.shearwateraviationmuseum.ns.ca/giftshop/main_copy(1).htm

It is a popular misconception that the roundel is an air force insignia.

It is not. It is a national identifier for aircraft regardless of service.

I see the RCAF's own "Logos & Insignia" web page (http://www.rcaf-arc.forces.gc.ca/en/logos-insignia.page) doesn't seem to help change that misconception much ....

This is the insignia, then?

Hi...I get car air force, army decals off Ebay. There are several dealers with all types of insignia etc. I've had this roundel on the back of my Ford Escape for over a year...

I buy from this seller...he has them all of high quality for just a few dollars...here are some examples....just search his listings using CANADA or CANADIAN and they will come up.

I'm not sure where to get official ones but I know you can email most decal making companies with a design and they'll gladly make you one. Some will even make a sticker for you from just an idea. I use this website for my decal needs. grfxpstore.com
