This is an old post, but someone may still want to know;
I simply picked up a corner of the "G-FLYER" decal, with a #11 Exacto blade, & peeled it off. I then created 1-5/16 inch high "NC2185E", using the USAF "Amarillo" font, working with CorelDraw, to get the layout, size, & color I wanted. I then printed that, on BelDecal paper.
The big mistake I made was that I failed to over-coat the finished decal with clear Krylon spray, so when I float-flew the Champ, the water affected the decals, as can be seen in the pictures.
