Default decals for the old Ertl Eagle

Hello all,

I was going through some old models I had stored away and found my old ERTL Eagle transporter model. in looking over it I noticed that where as the model is still in one piece and no missing or broken parts. the white paint had yellowed with age, and the old cement was not holding as tight as it use too. so I managed to pull the whole model apart without breaking a piece. (Thank the creator above for that) and decided to rebuild her complete with a new paint job. however this will mean destroying what decals are on the model now. is there any place to purchase replacement, more accurate decals for this kit? any advise or help would be most appreciated.
I look foreword to hearing from all of you, and I Thank you for your time.

Best Regards,
Chris

This is where I got mine, though the black squares are a bit large (for the nose section). These can be printed on clear decal sheets (I think Revell makes those? Got some on eBay for pretty good price.)

If you have an inkjet or color laser printer (not everyone has a color laser printer) you can print them using most graphics programs, and you can get decal paper on ebay. That's what I did.

One note. If you use an inkjet, you have to spray the decals first, with some kind of coating. I didn't pay particular attention to that, since I have a color laser and it wasn't necessary for color laser. But those instructions were on the bag the sheets came in.
