    A beautiful car that you are doing amazing work replicating.  Your work is not model building...it is artistry!!

    Soupy Sales MPC Challenger re-release
    This is basically an OoB of the MPC Soupy Sales Challenger.  The one thing I did is I fabricated new front axle mounts that moved the front axle about 0.100" further forward.  I built the Model King Challenger kit and knew the wheelbase was off, so I made the change as I was building this time.  Body is painted with Tamiya white, frame with Tamiya Metallic Blue.

    This all looks fantastic.  Your attention to detail and hard work is obvious in the pictures.  It looks so real I'd almost expect to see it at the nostalgia drags.  Your work leaves me in awe!!

    Mr. Van, the decals that I'm having problems with are about a year old, plus or minus a couple of months.  I ordered several in the fall of 2014 approx.  So not new, but not old either.

    Decal help
    I'll start this by making sure everyone knows that I am not bashing Slixx decals!!  I love their product.
     
    With that said, I need some help from the forum members.  I have been having difficulty with some Slixx sheets that I bought directly from Slixx about a year ago.  The decals are literally "shattering" when I get them wet and before they even loosen from the paper.  I have used Slixx decals for several years, and I've not had this problem before, so it is probably something I'm doing, but for the life of me I can't figure out what or why.
     
    Here is my procedure:  I run some warm (not hot) water in a glass bowl (cereal sized).  I cut the decal as close to the actual decal as possible from the sheet, place it in the water for about 10-15 seconds (until it is good and wet) place it on a paper towel (face up) for about 2-3 minutes and then check to see if it has loosened from the paper.  This has worked fine for all waterslide decals for years, but the last three Slixx decal sheets I've used the decal will break in to multiple pieces within in a minute or so of me placing it on the paper towel.  I'm open to all thoughts, ideas, criticisms, whatever.  I just want to solve my issue  Thanks in advance for the help!!
