Hi, I'm trying to finish a 1 24 McHale Manta using reji decals, I haven't used their decals before, they look very good, the colour on the black bodyshell is excellent, but I find them very difficult to position. Any advice appreciated! What I am finding is that as soon as the decal touches the model it is nearly impossible to move to correct the position, they just want to stick tight to the model, and this is with no decal softener applied

Use a warm soapy water to soak the decals in. A drop of fairy liquid or similar-rather than just water. Carlos decals have the same issue. Brush the soapy water onto the model too

soapy water is working a treat, I might get this finished this evening Very Happy The one issue I have now is the decals are printed so close together that some of them need cutting apart, and they are arranged completely random on the sheet, but on the model they look great IMO

Thanks for posting these Billy, 1st 1/24 completed in years, its not perfect, but I'm delighted with how it looks.

Rory, the decal round the rear spoiler is near 10cm long, and only a couple of mm wide, it would have been impossible without the soapy water
