I had this posted over on the Spook Central Facebook page, but I figured I’d move it to the site proper, so it can be added to the permanent archive.

Also, before I begin, let me just let everyone know that if you want the *ORIGINAL* Ertl/AMT Ecto-1A model waterslide decals or instruction sheet, I CURRENTLY HAVE THEM FOR SALE. GET THEM NOW BECAUSE THEY MAY NOT BE UP FOR MUCH LONGER.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Before I sold them, I scanned in the full unused sticker and decal sheets for Kenner’s Ecto-1 toy, Kenner’s Ecto-1A toy, and AMT/Ertl’s Ecto-1A model for the Ghostbusters Wiki:

Kenner Ecto-1
Kenner Ecto-1A (Body)
Kenner Ecto-1A (Windows)
AMT/Ertl Ecto-1A model (Front)
AMT/Ertl Ecto-1A model (Back)

I had an idea as to what you could do with them if you’re needing decals for your Ectomobile. Avery and 3M both make clear and white 8.5×11 full-sheet adhesive labels for inkjet printers.

Avery Clear Full-Sheet Labels for Inkjet Printers, 8.5×11 inches, Pack of 10 (18665)
3M Clear Permanent Adhesive Full Sheet Labels, 8.5×11 inches, Pack of 25 (3500-L)
Avery White Full-Sheet Labels for Inkjet Printers, 8.5×11 inches, Pack of 25 (8165)
Ace Label 8.5×11 inches Pressure-Sensitive White Label Sheet for Laser and Inkjet Printers, 1 Label per Sheet, Avery 8165 Sized, Pack of 25 (24000H)

Print out these large scans of the stickers/decals onto these label sheets and you’ll have your own stickers. The printed stickers would then be carefully cut out and applied to the Kenner Ecto-1 toy.

I’m not sure how that would work with the model decals, since you can’t really put regular stickers on a model, but the idea is still sound.

Also, Richard Roy’s Ecto-Containment site has the instruction manual PDFs for both Kenner toys, the Ecto-1 and Ecto-1A.
