About Oldmodels Decals

Oldmodels Decals started as me producing decals for myself - NZ subjects that no one else was interested in doing. I was then persuaded by a friend to list the decals I had done on TradeMe - a NZ equivalent of E-bay (but much friendlier!) back in 2011.

Then the requests started rolling in and I realised a hobby has become a business - hence this website.

Yes, I am a modeler. The photo below shows 12 F27s I built as a display honouring 50 years of F27 operations in NZ - the kits were mainly F-RSIN and 10 of the 12 decals were Oldmodels decals. (the other two were kits I had built many years ago). Between them they cover all the schemes used in NZ and covered off in my range.

Customer Commitment

Oldmodels Decals is based on the belief that my customers' needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.

I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.

I am a one person operation. This means that occasionally I may be slow to respond - if that happens - my apologies.


If you see a decal that you want but I am not listing it in the scale you want - please ask. Rescaling is one of the easier tasks and often I will be able to supply it at, or close to, the price for the nearest scale I list.

(the first feedback comment is for one of our troops in Afghanistan for whom I rescaled the C-130 set to 1/100)

Customer Feedback

Before establishing this website, I have sold around 250+ decal sets to 100+ customers, mainly in NZ, mainly through TradeMe and a few through Ebay. Some recent feedback from TradeMe - all from different buyers (for more see name "oldmodels")

Resized decals to a scale not advertised at no extra cost. I wanted them posted to middle of nowhere Afghanistan. Seller didn't even question that and decals arrived promptly. Decals detailed, accurate and really easy to use. Guide helpful. Very impressed. Signs outside our medical facility can now hang from two wooden Hercules. Needs more than a smiley face for this standard of service.

Great trade, really impressed with the detail of these decals. And a good explanation of how to put them on properly. My huey will look sweet very soon!

Excellent trader. Even in 1/144th scale the decals are finely detailed and sharp. Cheers.
