Inquiry Regarding Decal Removal


Sr Member
I applied a decal sheet to the neck of my 1:350 Enterprise, and I really don't like how it turned out. I used decal set with it, but haven't cleared it yet.

What's the best way to remove it without damaging my paintjob under it?

I was considering just letting it soak in luke warm water with a mild detergent for a while, and then just rubbing it off.

Any other thoughts?

Microsol will soften up a decal again. Then it can be wiped away. As long as the paint was gloss coated before decal was attached, it shouldn't harm the paint.

Was it a 3rd party decal sheet or the original decals from Round2? The Round2 decals are resistant to any kind of decal softener.
