Decal setting solution
Posted 08 May 2011 - 03:11 AM
I'm going to be using your Spitfire decals on a build soon and was wondering if there is a specific brand to use? I haven't used your decals yet so I don't want to use something too strong.

I've always used Micro-Scale's products, Mirco-Set, Micro-Sol and Solva-Set (for the most recalcitrant decals) and have always been satisfied with them.
Hope this helps a bit,

I used Elis set -
on my Mk XIV, and they are REALLY great decals. VERY thin yet strong. I recall I at first used MSol and MSet both. I was not totally satisfied with the results, so I did end up using Solvaset on them which seemed to work better.
Although Solvaset is a bit hotter than the MS stuff, it did not adversely effect my decals, and they settled down very nicely -

Thanks for the info. I prefer Solvaset myself. BTW, awesome Spit.

Thanks, I'm going to be using the same set of decals but will be using the Brunhilde markings. I'll try to get a bottle of Solvaset. I have Microset and Micro sol, and Mr Mark Softer (which is quite strong) but didn't know about their compatibility.

Micro system works fine but take a little longer to soften them up.
Solvaset is a "hot mamma" but my kids stand her!
Thanks for the support.
