Hi,

I'm building a Eduard 1/48 Albatros D.Va. (This is my first build. Well, I did a few when I was a teenager, close to 30 years ago but that doesn't really count). 

I've just placed the losenge decals on the wings. Everything went well and I'm please with the result. I haven't put any Pledge/Klear over it yet. The plan provides for stencils and additional decals over the losenge decals. 

Should I put clear on the first level, let it dry, then put the other level of decals and Pledge once all is done or should I put Pledge in between each levels ? (I hope I make sense here).

Yes you want to clear the Losenge first just to keep the decal solution from the next layer from messing with the first. I'd clear the Losenge, paint the stencils, and then add the last layer of decals before clearing a second time.

That's how I would do it. But that may not be what is correct. Please wait for more opinions before proceeding.

Ordinarily decaling solution won't hurt the original layer of decals when you use it again, maybe if you've covered the entire wing in decals then seal that first yes. Just as a safety net anyway.

I think Simons spot on, I had decals go over decals on a couple of my recent builds , I didn't clear between them but I did let the first ones dry completely before adding the ones over the top and I was sparing with the setting solution when i put the top ones on
