Anyone use these instead of decals? I would like to hear your thought on them. I am thinking about using some for a 1:48 Ki-43 Hayabusa.

I used them on a Hasegawa Typhoon, they are worth the effort.

Wow, that's real nice Bernard! Did you have to lightly sand down the paint ridges?

Hi Chris
Sure, I'm using them quite often and must say, that they're working just great.
The only problem is that the glue is not strong enough to hold in place on the curved areas, like canopies.

But for the markings they are almost perfect.
