Testors makes an INKJET decal material available at Hobby Lobby and 
model airplane stores. Six sheets for $8.95. find the right font and 
you can make the decals on an inkjet printer. White is generally not 
available but a light silver is a good substitue or green as on my 
SX43. I am going to use silver on my Sky Buddy. 

I buy an aerosol adapter at local commercial paint store. It is a gas 
cartridge that screws on the top of a baby food sized jar. With matched 
paint you can spray as good as aerosol cans, cost is about $5.
