Response to Need help with alcad2 and solvaset reacting badly.

Hi Steve:

30 some years ago I was taught to mix a new bottle of "MicroSet" with a new bottle of "MicroSol" into a larger bottle and mix it up and re-fill the smaller bottles.

Next, I apply this new mix to "ANY" decal after it has come out of my clean water and is ready to be slid onto the model after the "Future" has dried for a few days.

Next, I apply some of this new mix on the area of the model, where the decal is to go. I add more "Set/Sol" mix to the area and position the decal, then use ordinary toilet paper to blot off the excess fluid.

A few minutes later I apply clean water and wash off the decal with a 1/4", 1/2" and/or a 1" soft brush. I blot this are dry and come back in a couple of minutes to check out the decal and add any "Set/Sol" mix if necessary, if not, the the decal is finished.

This method has worked for me on "ALL" brands of paint.

I have built over 300 models since 1984 using this method and still today the decals look like they were put on the model yesterday.

I "never" used "Solvaset" in the early 1980's nor have I ever used it and/or anything else but the "Set/Sol" mix!
