Hi, nice job so far, i know what you mean by the decals, there are a right pain in the butt lol,
As for help with them, i use Micro Set and Micro Sol on my decals, it works well and shapes them to almost any shape, but when its doing its thing, the decals will make you cry at what they are doing ( they wrinkle up )
Revell Of Germany state on their site the kit is 201mm long , so that means its a scale length is 16' long, but the real FX4 is only 14' long so it does look like the kit is infact 1.20th scale as everyone is stating , bummer but there you go chaps

Will it fit in my garage? The dimensions of an FX4 or Fairway are: Height: 1.765m, Width: 1.750m, Length: 4.558m and Weight: 1.650kg.
4.558m = 14' 11.44"

here is the London Taxi , and it i in 1.24th scale, would look great next to the RM ( Route Master ) Bus, which im getting so i can build it for my father, for xmas, as he used to drive them around the era of On The Busses TV show was being made
As for a single decker one , here is a 1:1 picture
so looks like i may have to get the taxi kit as well just to have them side by side or in a form of a dio for my father
no one is talentless, just not as good as some, and not a single person on this forum is 100%
As for stripping paint , i use brake fluid as we dont have 90% of the products you guys mention , here in the UK and oven cleaner is too strong a smell for me to use in our spare room, so brake fluid it is for me
and if anyone is a talentless hach, then that is my discription
