I buy a lot of kits online and sometimes these kits have been sitting in a basement or attic for quite a while. If they come with decals it is very likely they will disintegrate when dipped in water. This decal film can save many of these damaged decals by providing a top film to hold them together. Once you get the decal on the model and allow it to dry thoroughly the decal solvents will work in settling the decal into the details and eliminating the silvering on the edges. Remember to trim the decal right up to the edge of the image as this film does not distinguish between a decal and a carrier film. If you coat the entire decal sheet with this film the entire sheet will slide from the paper backing when immersed in water.
This works great in combination with an appropriate clear or white decal paper. The only drawback is that the resulting decals must, of course, be trimmed closely.
You got plastic models? Invariably, they come with decals that give that extra bit of authenticity.
And if you don't like the notion of watching that fragile bit of colored film curling up and away from that painstakingly detailed model: use some of this.
