Use decals which you cut with a circle cutter. I bought one at Wally Mart for about $7. You can set the radius, and the blade is plenty sharp.

Just pre-paint the decal paper in the color you want. Alternatively, you could use it to cut out frisket paper and use as a mask.

It's easier than it looks.

thx. when it comes to Aurora repops I just mix and match the companies.

did not think that polar lights still did anything as I was under the impression
they shut down years ago.

They are part of Round 2 who also has the old AMT and MPC molds. Polar Lights just put out a "Comic Scenes" Captain America kit like the old Aurora issue. I assumed you had the new kit, since it just came out. They are reissuing a lot of the old PL kits and also putting out all new kits

I just forgot about them after they went under. They had great plans for the Aurora repops and new stuff.
Between Moebius and PL I plan to fully relive my childhood.

I have the kit and there are no decals. BUT...the circles and star are in relief so it should be easier to paint. "Q"
