'Deckles' :huh:

Ok all my life I've heard and pronounce 'decals' as 'dee-cals' and then suddenly when I'm checking out gunpla and various other plamo reviews on youtube, there are some folks pronoucing 'deckles' and for a while I had no idea what they were talking about. Is this just a gunpla builders pronounciation quirk or have people starting using pseudo-brit pronounciations for modelling terms and I never knew about it?

It's a regional thing. A lot of of the Canadian modelers seem to favor "deckles".

Yeah, one of the newer fellows that builds with "thosegundamguys" is from Vancouver and it was the first time I heard dee-cals pronounced deckles. A few of us were thrown back, but then we just started asking what that was all aboot, and that sorta settled things.

Makes sense, I was listening to the rrobert11tk youtube reviews and listening to the other stuff he says, I'm almost sure he's Canadian now.
