Default First Cartridge/Antler with Decal

First attempt at using photoshop to simulate scrimshaw with decal. Slimline kit with .308 cartridge and euro finial. Antler with decal on top. Drilled out cartridge and custom fit wood/tube in the bottom. Picture is terrible.... taken on the hood of the car before I gave this to a friend in the hospital.

Paul,
There's a CA finish over the decal. The decals I'm using are the Testors decals that you print yourself with an inkjet. I've only done a few decals and it's a little tricky getting the air bubbles out.
......thanks to everyone on IAP for all the help!!!
