Any body use them ? I bought a few sets, interesting subjects, but see they are not pre cut. Do you recommend scissors or ?

I feel like cutting them in squares or rectangles would be risky eventhough pre and post VMS gloss/matt should hide the edges. Are Bison the only pre cut 1 72 sets?

Be careful with them. I bought a flag set and the first one decentagrated on me when I brought it out of water. I put decal film on the rest and used scissors to remove them from their backing paper. Everything worked after that.

Decal film? Never had to use it/not familiar with it, but why can't I just cut them out and apply as is?

Thanks for the advice

I didn't have any problems with Peddinghaus decals, I used them as regular waterslide decals, using sharp X-acto blade to cut the decal.

The decal film is very thin and in my experience the film is not visible after a coat of MicroSol.

I bought their pin up set and they sucked..printed on clear film,and the decals were transparent. so basically you couldnt see them unless you applied them to white

I've used a set in 1/35 and found the film extraordinarily tough and very hard to get down over detail, even with gallons of MicroSol and extra decal adhesive.

Hmm... it seems Peddinghaus quality control has its ups and downs. I was very happy with the sets I ordered, but it seems there are number of completely opposite experiences.
