Thanks, John. I've half a mind to try this myself on the Revell kit. Just depends on whether I can find some balls.

Kev I posted an ebay link a few posts back so you at least know the brand to look for - there are many other brands obviously but normally in huge quantities

AIMS 1/32 Spitfire PR 1G update
I do not care which country you live in or how good a modeller you are or if your thing is decals or masks - I confess that after being a writer and a producer for more than 25 years this stage scares me witless! Rivets and a panel that will come off again all equal - careful shepherding, praying and running to the toilet!

Man, I hear you!! I use stencils as much as possible for that reason.

AIMS 1/32 Spitfire PR 1G conversion with Barracuda details update.
Hi everyone I have been at it slowly. Not my best work but my hands are bad. Photos show this bird rather dirty after numerous leaks but I have overdone it as my raised rivets did not allow me to wipe away the oil wash I did not want - I could overspray but would rather leave as is. Flash photography makes everything look worse than it is so avoided that apart from a cockpit photo. Hope you like - lots more to do yet - baby steps! John

If you want to see a commercial aircraft in service weathering I can provide inservice 737NG landing gear well pictures at your convenance.

 

I don't know about John, but given my growing collection of 1/72 737 kits, I might have to take you up on that one myself!

Try this:

With a pointed brush, put small drops of Micro Set randomly where the decal is supposed to go.

Remove any excess water from the bottom of the decal.

Slide decal into position.

Use a soft brush (preferably sable) to smooth out the decal by gently pushing moisture out from under it.

Airbrush Micro Sol over the decal Wait a minute and repeat. Airbrushing applies an even coat on the decal softening it evenly rather than leaving random puddles that unevenly soften the decal. Micro Sol will not damage your airbrush, but flush with water when you're done.
