Hi everyone Can somebody tell me how to cut decals that need to be applied over the front fenders ( Porsche 935-78 martini ) that cover the air vents outs of the tires , in this tamiya Porsche some air vents are open and I opened the ones that were closed but the decal cover this part . I try with other car aplying the decal and then with an x acto cut it , but it didn't work !

Thanks

I'm just putting the finishing touches on the 76 Martini Porsche... While it doesn't have the same vents, here's what I'd do. :sunglasse
Lay down the decal as normal over the vents.
Wait until it is about dry, still "spanning" across the vent gaps.
Then, cut with a BRAND new blade right next to the BACK side of the vent.
That should allow the decal to fall into the gap.
At that point, I'd use a little decal solution on a brush and dab it down into the vent gap.
You can kinda see what I'm talking about with this old build (probably built in 2004-ish...)
