RCAF car decal
« on: August 29, 2015, 13:54:15 »
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 doesn't seem to help change that misconception much ....

This is the insignia, then?

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
