HOW TO APPLY
The new generation of Eduard decals has been developed since 2018. In all kits of all Eduard series, these decals have been standard since September 2019. Another type of decals is not used for Eduard kits after this date, the same applies to Eduard Decals
sets. These decals allow the removal of the upper cover layer of varnish after application and settling of decals, which leads to
a perfect fusion of the decal with the surface of the model. This is even though they were not originally designed for such an
application and the basis of their application is the classic procedure, where the varnish is not removed from the applied decal.
Jakub Nademlejnský‘s presentation shows both possibilities. Both also give a good result, the procedure is not difficult in either
case. Every modeler can handle it while following the basic rules and with the necessary skills. So, it’s up to the modeler which
option he chooses.
Firstly, I spray the fuselages with glossy black paint GX2 and then with Plate Silver
SM07, so that the surface is as close as possible to real metal finish and thus also as
difficult as possible to decals application.
The first photo shows the tools needed to airbrush paint on the P-51D-5 Mustang fuselages and a decal sheet for Mustangs from
the 357th Fighter Group (cat. No. D48077).
