New Round 2 Star Trek Decals are now Available

I was asked if I had any information on this about 2 weeks ago regarding Round 2's Star Trek Decals release. At that time, I wasn't able to find anything. I did find out over the Chinese New year Holidays that these decals are now readily available at Round 2's website. They look really nice, a good supplement to your kits.

So to those who are still interested, here's what you get and where to get them:

  • 5 HUGE (approx. 15” x 15”) sheets
  • 4 sheets of Aztec decals used in the 2009 1:350 Enterprise 1701A release
  • 1 NEW sheet created specifically for this set with alternate ship names and registry numbers
  • Engineering colors in blue, gray (onscreen appearance), and green
  • Detailed application instructions
You need to stare really hard to see those aztec designs. They're pretty blurry from where I'm looking

  • Complete aztec decals for the 1/537 scale U.S.S. Reliant
  • Accurately styled design
  • Alternate markings for the U.S.S. Saratoga
  • 4 big 10” x 13 1/2” sheets

  • Supplemental decal sheet to the recent Polar Lights U.S.S. Enterprise Refit 1:1000 scale ship
  • Big 8”x 9” sheet
  • Alternate ship names and registry numbers
  • Engineering colors in blue, neutral gray, and green
  • Various ship markings allow builders to paint the majority of the surface detail and add fine details with decals


  1. I do have a number of questions though regarding the application of decals? While the decals add to the authenticity and the details of the kit where painting alone cannot achieve, my main concern is the durability. Will the edges(the transparent area without any colour)of the decals yellow and make the kit look as though there are yellowish streaks along the saucer section and body per se? Secondly, will the decals peal off at the edges in time if I do not apply a clear coat of lacquer over it? If a clear coat is needed, what's the best(i.e. brand, type) as to not damage the decals? Advice would be most welcome as I'm basically a beginner in terms of painting/airbrushing.

    I have highlighted some steps on how to apply decals over at my other blog. Do visit for a quick tutorial, as well as how to deal with decals problems.

    Hope the information there helps
