Decals going on .... the microsol is having no effect on them at all . Having a bit of a time getting them to settle down around the seams and locks tightly .

Love it! Decals looks good! Where the decals have issues to settle down, you can cut them. And then press on the seams with a wet cotton swabs. THe few times I had this issue with decals I used a tapered tip cotton swabs.

Looking very sharp, that's a lot of decals!

Currently finishing up the AMT 77 Ford Cruising van, decals were a pain, not happy with my results.

Really like'n the color Dale. 

If you had the decals, you could replicate the "Convoy Van" version. It's body was molded in that same color plastic.

Working on the interior while I wait for the decals to fully dry . The Axalta clear doesn’t like moisture ....

Axalta gets the clear on point !  Nothing like real automotive products to get that real automotive finish !!
