So, this weekend I’ll have to set a pretty big decal on the acrylic-painted glossed turret flank of my KV-2, here it is for reference: (not mine of course)
Now, I only have set a couple of decals in my life, it was a “7” on the flanks of the ISU-152.
I was pretty easy but I got very lucky with placement, as they basically cemented almost instantly once set on the surface. Luckily I carefully slided them and ended up straight.
Now, this one is much bigger and it worries me.
I am going to use the lower handlebar on the turret as “guide”, but I’d like some “wiggle” time to make sure it is straight.
Besides buying specific products, is there any trick to delay the adherence and to keep the decal mobile?
Maybe wetting the surface with distilled water? Or do I really need a specific product? If yes, what kind?
I even heard about vinegar but I am not sure.
