Finished this Hasegawa 1/32 F-104S of 23 Gruppo, 5 Stormo Italian AF a
few days after I finished the P-39D.  Replaced the seat with a resin seat
from CMK and decals are from Zotz which did not perform well.  First decal off the sheet
started breaking apart while moving it into position.  Had to end up using MicroFilm for all the
rest of them and even then a few still broke apart under the film.

Nice!

Question: what is micro film?

 

Micro Superfilm is one of the products made by MicroScale along with their decal solvent and set.  The super film is clear

and is used to help save old decals or in my case ones that were cracking when coming off the sheet.  Brushing the film over

the decal in effect puts a new clear film over the decal.  Dries in minutes.  Once dry, cut the decal very close to its original

clear film and apply as usual.  This stuff has saved many a decal for me.  I swear by it.

 

Cheers,
