    Product Description
    Stencils for Spitfire Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VIII model in 1/48 scale by Eduard. Wet transfer technology means that decal doesn't leave any signs of varnish or typical film after its application, so only text or symbols stay attached to the surface.

    The biggest issue relating to using ordinary decals is the varnish which creates a glossy film around the decal. It is quite hard to work with classic decals the way to make this film invisible and it is impossible to reach a good result in case of metallic surfaces.

    HGW's wet transfers are similar to ordinary decals. It is possible to move them during the attaching process and find the best position. Then just push the water from below the transfer, let it dry few hours, remove the transfer foil and work is done. Only text or symbol stays attached to the surface.

    Instructions:
    1. Cut the required part.
    2. Soak in hot water and wait till the decal loose its base-paper.
    3. Apply as regular decal.
    4. Push the water from below the decal.
    5. Let it dry for 2-3 hours.
    6. Remove the transfer foil and clean the glue stains with water.

    How to apply water-slide decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
