Applying Waterslide Decals to Plastic Models

By Mike Gilsbach

This is a video demonstration of applying standard waterslide decals to a Tamiya 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk Vb. In this demo, I stick to some basic techniques using a combination of distilled water, decal set and Solvaset. There are specialized techniques for working with old, yellowed or very thin decals that may be covered in a future demo. I have seen lots of different approaches to aplying decals, but this is how I have been doing it for quite a while now and have been pleased with the results. Enjoy!
