Taking about decals, I have a question. The roundels come in two parts, the middle dot needs to be put on top of the main decal. Now these are Tamiya decals and indeed quite thick, I royally had to apply Micro Sol and Set to get them to conform.

So question, probably best to spray another gloss coat before applying the decal on top? First I thought of spraying a second gloss coat just on the surface of the decal but decided against it as I fear it might produce a step in the painting. Any suggestions/thoughts?

Cheers,
Wim.

For 2 part decals I just lay them on top of each other (after the 1st has dried) i never clear between them.

And those Tamiya decals are a real bear ! I really hate them lol, I heard a tip about using really hot water to soak them, a while back I bought some Gunze Mr mark softer which is supposed to be really strong and ideal for use with the thick Tamiya and Hasegawa decals, I haven't had a chance to use it yet as my last couple of builds didn't need it but i must give it a try

Cheers Pete, in fact the Micro Sol and Set worked like a charm (if I remember well 4 applications), the result is pretty much ok. I'll probably go with an overall light coat of Future and see where it gets me, these Tamiya decals really seem to need this.

Thanks for the help though, probably going to get myself some Mr Mr as well ...

Update following.

Cheers,
Wim.

We have a heatwave going on in Belgium, 10:10 pm and still around 32° C, not that sharp at the moment [eek][wink][eek] So, edit: I misunderstood your answer Pete. I still have to do the decals for the fuselage, going to try this. In fact, there are two sets of decals included so I can experiment ...

To be continued ...
