Hi All,

I have a couple of questions regarding Tamiya Mark Fit.

I am soon to place the Air Recognition Symbols, ()Swastickers), on the Fore and Aft Deck of the Bismarck but before I do, I want to ensure that I have the correct Tamiya Mark Fit....

 

Currently, I have in my possession, "Normal" or "Original" Mark Fit.

I am concerned that I may seed the "Strong" or "Super Strong" version, a couple of reasons for this thinking is that it would be nice to see the outline of the Deck Planking and the Fore Deck has an additional layer of Decking, on top for the Anchor Chains to run over, so, the Decal needs to conform to this also.

 

I have read also that the "Super Strong" version may damage decals and only for use by experienced modelers??

 

Any advice would be great, also any "Sage" experience or techniques would be fantastic also.

 

Cheers and Regards,

 

Harry.

You might try posting the question on model railroading forums. They use a lot of decals on engines and rail cars.

 

I have used a decal wetting/setting solution in the past but I don't remember much about it, and I don't recall any "super strong" versions. I certainly am not an expert with decals!

I have never used Mark fit so don't know how good it is.

Personally I use Micro Sol and Micro Set for decals. Once dry it makes the decal appear to have been painted onto the surface.

It is a bit more expensive, but I would highly recommend it.

There is only one answer to this question

 

Micro-Sol....

 

There isn't any others better... All others try to live up to it...

I concur with Egilman  and Paul. I've been using it for at least 30 years,  there is none better.

Thank you all very much for the advice!!

Very much appreciated.

 

I guess that I now need to "Troll" through the handful of decent modelling retailers here. (I'm not sure I'll have much luck here  in New Zealand.... 🙂)

 

Cheers and Regards,

 

Harry.
