    The Micro Sol liquid you can apply in a minute or two after putting the decal marking on a model. Aplly some of it with a soft brush on the marking and after 30s remove its excess with a soft cloth. Then put away your model for a couple of hours ( for a night e.g... ). Then you may spray a varnish matt or gloss and continue working.

    I usually let the decals dry for an hour or two before applying Microsol, but that's more habit than method and is not therefore the 'right' way to do it.
    Some decals may not react to Microsol at all. Some may require several applications to bash them into shape. Others may over react to the Microsol and in extreme cases may even break up. I would always suggest using an unwanted decal off the sheet applied to any old bit of plastic as a guinea pig, just to be on the safe side.
    Cheers

    Thanks

    I used to wait an hour or more.
    This time I tried a few mins. after applying the decal.

    Seems like the Super scale Int. lay down better than the Tamiya.
    ....and the academy don't ever lay down
