  1. Correct. The 1980 NFCCG at Philly was the last time Dallas wore royal blue jerseys.
  2. Why? So far the 21st century has been a pretty dismal time for uniforms. Imo there's something to be said for sticking to one's roots.
  3. I'm going to disagree...kinda. Imo white helmets look fine if, and only if, white is one of that school's primary colors.
  4. I can only assume that the irony of an Oregon fan making a statement like that is lost on you. ...
  5. Template uniforms are infinitely preferable to b-list superhero costumes.
  6. These two statements are contradictory, imo.
  7. 3-4 weeks is typical for UDS in my experience. I'm a fan, although sometimes I prefer to replace some of his stuff with my own (more accurate) DIY versions.
  8. The former. I wound up using a lot of tape to seal off the openings, and when I removed it some of the padding came away with the tape. I think going forward I'll just remove the front and rear bumpers, seal off the vents with masking tape (I prefer Tamiya's) and then stuff the helmet with newsprint to keep out any over spray.
  9. I prefer to keep it simple. I find the artwork I need on the net and make any changes in MS Paint . Next I copy the images and paste them to an MS Word doc. By doing it that way I can resize the individual images as necessary with little or no loss of quality. When I have a full sheet I print them out in black and white on regular paper to check for size. Once I'm happy with the sizes I convert the doc to a pdf. I'll then print a color test version of that (again on regular paper) on our color copier/printer here at work. If that's good to go I use that pdf to print the decals. To make the decals I use the following: http://www.ebay.com/itm/INKJET-White-Photo-Gloss-Self-Adhesive-Label-Decal-Sticker-Paper-1-Sheet-/272651908920?hash=item3f7b51f738:g:bDMAAOSwnHZYjORY http://www.ebay.com/itm/Inkjet-Laser-Laminate-Film-Weatherproof-Your-Decals-Two-Sheets-GLOSSY-/272651909943?hash=item3f7b51fb37:g:2SUAAOSw9GhYjOmg (note that the laminate is also available in matte and semi-matte versions). Print the decals, cut out the images you want to use and apply the laminate, and then carefully trim as necessary (I use an xacto knife with a no.11 blade and a straight edge). Once you've done that just peel and stick. Below is a full size helmet I finished recently that has a mix of Upperdeck studios stuff and DIY (conf logo, P6 and Texas flag).
  10. With apologies to the late Douglas Adams: "Ah. This is obviously some strange usage of the word 'fantastic' that I wasn't previously aware of."
