Seeking advice for an old model kit.
I am posting this seeking advice from people with more experience than myself.
I have posted before, I am getting back into the hobby after MANY years away from it. I am nearing completion of several models, including this one.
I have run into a new snag with this model. As you can see, it is a very old kit. I painted it white, then put a clear coat on (Revell gloss, spray can). I put a large decal on, a blue stripe down the side. As it dried it fell off! It had lost all the adhesion chemical. I even used micro set before putting the decal on and micro sol after putting it on. I suppose I could mask and paint a blue stripe down the side. Here are my questions:
I have other old kits. Any advice on using old decals would be appreciated. I have heard about taking a picture of them, then printing on decal paper. I do not have a color laser printer.
Could it have something to do with my clear coat? I have used the floor polish before, it worked well (with new decals). Cant tell what the culprit is because more than one variable changed (age of decals and clear coating).
Does anyone make new decals for old kits? That is a long shot, but had to ask.
