Another little gem as you are staying with the Brits and again nice attention to detail. I like the exhausts and the plumbing. What have the issues with the decals been? I try to avoid kit decals and use masks for roundels and letters. For some future builds I will have a shot on HGW wet transfers and hope for better results.

Hi Rob

i found that the Tamiya decals are quite thick and dont respond well to decal softeners.

this happened

it started to "crack" and break apart. so i decided to try some roundel masks instead. HGW wet transfers are definitely the way to go

I had the same problem on my Tamiya Spit and had to use some aftermarket ones which worked well. Personally I think that Tamiya's decals are the weak part of a fantastic package. But could also be a matter of personal preference.

Cheers
