I'll nominate myself to take on your suggestion of a "Stripping an IXO / Atalya Metro 6R4 model" tutorial Nicky, but give me a week or two to go through every stage and photograph it, and then I'll get it uploaded on here. Wink

Right my suggestion is for a thread on "How to apply decals"

I got some Jawi decals today thanks to Rob and will be collecting the base car from srs in a few weeks so need help in workin out how to apply the decals, are they water slide or do I need decal softener, I can't even tell if they are precut or not, thankfully I got two sets so if I make a b@!!s of the first set I can clean up the car and then ask someone else to apply the decals for me Smile

peter all decals from jawi need cut. they are waterslide and will move about for a good while till you get them position'd.
decal softner not really needed,only on decals that go over arches or round bends, i use a hair-dryer to help sink the decals round the arches/corners.

Would I need to apply any sort of a varnish when the decals have dried out??

Be careful with the hair-dryer. I know someone Embarassed Rolling Eyes who has a melted windscreen and wipers to show for a bit of over exuberance!!!!

Had it set too high Crying or Very sad

Wouldn't be used to such hi-tech equipment, don't use them that much Laughing

Peter - a good few cheap decals here. Might be worth buying a set or three and experiment on a model or two.

Hi Billy. Sorry, I thought I'd included the model in the title ( must get to grips with this forum thingy!).
It's a Corgi Vanguard Escort - quite nice on the outside, but could do with a little love elsewhere.
Cheers
