    Hi all:
    I do not know if I am asking this question in the right topic but general discussion seemed like a good place. Anyways, I have recently been watching a lot of videos on case modding and have decided to give it a go for the first time. And the topic I have chosen I bet you will never guess. SO one thing I am having trouble finding is a close up of the originals Enterprise's Registry. I have found a few pics of the saucer section but when I try to use gimp (which I am not good at) when I try to crop and resize the picture, the pixels become blurry and I need nice crisp lines because I am going to be hand cutting vinyl (because I can't afford a silhouette or cricut) to do the designs that I want. So can some on help me find a good clean crisp picture of the registry, I would love you forever. Thanks! Current pixels are 752x292.

    Have you tried the decal sheet from the models?

    I believe both Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator allow you to create a curve and align the font to that curve. Some other (far less expensive) software can probably do that as well.

    The decal solution may also work - if they are of the size you want. Polar Lights (part of Round2) has some sets on the market for their Star Trek kits, and there are a number of aftermarket decal makers out there as well.

    I said out, dammit!
    Yep, I do all my personal decals in Corel.
    Measure the diameter at the point on the saucer where you want the decal, make a circle in Corel at that size, and "fit text to curve."
