How do you guys go about your decal work ??

I soak the decal off in warm water. Apply microscale..micro set to the body of the car then place the decal on to the body.

Lightly start to brush the decal with Micro set.

Get the decal into the place you want then start to brush the decal with a soft brush to get the air etc out.

Keep doing this till it sits down and looks right.

If the decal is not sitting correcty or is not "hugging" on around some part.....i will use a hairdryer set on warm and very carefully wave it over the decal, while at the same time still brushing it.
Once in place i'd brush (a little) micro set over it and allow it to dry.

This works for me

Current Build.....1/12 Scale Camaro......Almost finished!!!
