  18. What are your favorite scale model reveiw sites? thanks....tomk
  19. I put it both under and over. Under to give a smooth level surface and over to seal them in and level the decal with the paint. You can just overcoat as most car finishes are glossy and just fine for decals. If you want to see a sample of the under/over clear coat look up my Kurtis Kraft racer in the review section of this website. The clear coat I used was from testors. Hope that helps. Yes, it does...thank you
  20. Hi, I have been scale modeling for 40 years but I'm working on one of my first cars. Do you put the clear coat under or over the decals? thanks...tomk

    Bad Decales

    I recently put together my first Roden model. It is a 1/48 Pilatus Porter aircraft. When I started putting on the decals they totally disintergrated. I have been modeling for 50 years and this is the first time decales have ever done this. I emailed the company but they have not reponded. Has anyone had this problem with Roden before? tomk
