    Quality of Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair 1/32 Decals

    I was the one that said at there is nothing wrong with Tamiya decals, yes they are a tad thick but that's it... People that complain that they are crap are applying them incorrectly. A while ago I was one of those people... I don't use any setting or sol agents on them. Just a bit of heat from a hairdryer and cotton bud to roll out the moisture from behind the decal. I have used this method on old and new decals supplied in Tamiya kits. The only question would be the accuracy of them. I know the Mk.XVI Spitfire had issues with the 485 Sqdn decals.

    Tamiya 60325: F4U-1A Corsair

    @John1 I use no setting solutions at all. Pretty much my Setting Solutions have sat untouched for the last 8 years.

    Tamiya 60325: F4U-1A Corsair

    The trick is using heat. Low heat setting on a hairdryer with a moist cotton bud to push the trapped air and conform around details. Works on older kits and new releases.

    Tamiya 60325: F4U-1A Corsair

    Totally untrue... Your just applying them incorrectly! I've had no issues with Tamiya Decals, yes they are thicker than others... But if you apply them correctly they are fine.
  9. I recall a while ago, I saw a small tutorial on how one of the LSP members traced the decal sheet into the Silhouette software and sharpened the details after the trace... Can someone point me to the thread it was posted in? Or was I just dreaming?

    Social Modelling. Who does it?

    I do.. There is total of 4 of us that live within 5-10mins of each other. So we try every Wednesday night to catch up for few hours gluing plastic and talk s***.

    Anyone for an RNZAF Skyhawk 'Kahu' panel and HUD?

    Kiwi guy #2 received the package from Kiwi guy #3... Kiwi guy #2 has overnighted the Kahu parts to Kiwi guy #1 at lunch... I had a quick look at the parts before forwarding them on... Man that detail is really nice for it being printed!
  12. Bumping this to the top again.. Had some great ideas going for this in the past.
