    Product Description
    Stencils for Mikoyan MiG-31 B/BS Foxhound A model (AMK) in 1/48 scale. 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. OK, there are dry transfers on the market but work with them is also quite uncomfortable, it is hard to place them correctly and a modeler has the one chance only.

    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.


    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.

    Preparing the masks: Masks should not be stretched during the application process as they are flexible and this could cause deformation. Remove the whole mask if necessary, and then apply again. Once placed on the model, the mask surface should be adjusted to the surface of the model by tracing all the indentations with a pointed wooden stick.
    Painting method: Try not to apply two coats of color at the edges of a mask. Instead, apply one color prior to painting the proper camouflage, and apply the other color after the mask is back on. Otherwise, the coating in the areas encased by the mask may be too thick, and after removing the mask the edges of the lighter color may become visible.
