Hello Ladies & Gents,
I am looking for a decal setting solution that was just as strong as Floquil's setting solution which is no longer available. I need one that will actually melt the decal. I have tried microset red & blue bottles, Badgers setting solution, Champ's, Testor's and it is all watered down lemonade. I just read that a few guys are using Aerosol decal setting solution and describe its abilities exactly like what I am looking for. Does anyone know where I can get this stuff at in the US??? Squadron shop?? Roll Hobbies?? Wal-mart!!!!
Help!!!
Sincere regards,
Larry

Have you tried Solvaset? Model rail road stuff. It can be a bit harsh but I found it works on decals that brush off other solution and laugh at you about it. I bought my bottle a long long time ago. and it still works, and more importantly it's still available. Walthers lists it on it model rr site. I've added it with water to make some old Micro Scale decals work. Good Luck.
