Please prepare the A4 size of photo paper (thick coated paper) as printing paper. It should be noted that because it is very is bent or to handling after it cut out when you print on thin paper, please be sure to use a thick paper. You can not cleanly printed on plain paper, but if you try printing, etc. for the practice of cut does not matter on plain paper.

Print settings is in the "photo printing", in no enlargement or no reductio, paper size "A4", the printing of direction "vertical". Print quality is the most important. Please change the setting of the most high quality without the "standard".


Cut image
Cut the license plate portion from the printed paper. In the case of small images, such as 1/64, it may not be able to work in one times. Until you will be able to successfully, please try several times.


Attachment to the miniature car
Paste the license plate paper to a miniature car. I think that it may be easy to remove later, Please be fixed with glue for paper.
Since there is no three-dimensional thickness, it might be somewhat unsatisfactory by the large scale miniature cars.
