WnW Decalling woes


Recommended Posts

Tried applying, using water and hairdryer method and this was the result.





Can anyone help me resolve this? I have tried soaking with Micro-Sol to no avail. If it can't be fixed, I may have to sand off and switch schemes. Any advice gratefully received.

No sanding needed. Prick each bubble with a needle or new #11. Reapply Micro Sol liberally. Let it sit. I usually do this before hitting the rack. That way it sits unobserved for a few hours. Because, as we all know. Nothing works as we want it while were sitting there watching it.

Hi Paul and Jeroen


I used a mix of Gunze and Tamiya to get the PC10 and this dried to a glossy consistency, so I didn't bother putting a gloss coat on (stands back and waits for howls of derision from the crowd). The fin flash went on OK. Yes, I am very impatient, but did leave it over night for the Micro-Sol to work after pricking the bigger bubbles. I shall try again tonight.

Try Solvaset or Mr. Mark Softer...they're definitely more potent.

I don't have any of those in at the moment. I may have to bite the bullet and sand it off if the Micro-Sol can't hack it. I should be able to adapt a roundel from one of the other schemes to replace it.

Mike, I normally place the decal and then all the water out underneath with a cotton bud. Once most of the water is gone, that's when I hit with the hair dyer.


Try what Jeroen has said with the sol... If you have no luck let me know and I will have some spare decals for you. No need of sanding them just use some masking tape to remove them.

Having trouble getting hold of Solvaset and Mr Mark in Canada. Solvaset is considered to be hazmat apparently and postage rates from the States are a killer at the moment. If anyone knows of an outlet for the Mr. Mark products, then please let me know as I would like to add them to my armoury.



thanks for the advice. I may have been too quick off the mark with the hairdryer. I think the decal is ruined so if you do have a spare you could send me, that would be wonderful.
