[ 弊社デカール保管上の注意点 Regarding storage of decals from MFH kits ]


– when storing decals, please refrain from stacking decals together/on top of each other without placing protective paper in between decal sheets.
– refrain from applying weight/pressure or sandwiching decals between objects when storing decals.
– refrain from leaving decals in high moisture areas while storing.
The decals used in our kits have a delicate finish in order to preserve flexibility. The surface layer may become damaged over time if the above steps are not followed.
When removing protective paper, sometimes traces will remain on the clear coat surface. In most cases, the trace will stand out less after soaking the decals in water and applying them to the model. If the model receives a clear coat after decals have been placed, the traces will become almost invisible.

Extra tips:
1) use boiling water (90~100 degrees Celsius) to remove decal from backing sheet. Not only will this soften decals, it will also make it harder for decals to break.
2) various decal softeners exists on the market for removing wrinkles from decals but vary in strength depending on the maker. In the video we used fuel alcohol (alcohol used as lamp fuel with a mixture of 95% methanol and 5% ethanol) – please note that various alcohol products exist on the market and differ vastly in concentration and dilution. Please test with unneeded decals first to see if the alcohol works with the decals – if too strong the alcohol will burn through the decals. Note that it is not absolutely necessary to use alcohol unless decals are not settling well, or if a 3rd party decal softeners is not functioning well – please try out various market products and find one that suits you best.
3) apply alcohol lightly onto the decal using a brush and the decal will slowly soften. It make take some time for results to show.
4) after brushing down the decal fully, leave decals alone for 2~3 minutes. Decals will shrink as alcohol is evaporated and remove wrinkles from the decal at the same time.
5) use a clean cloth soaked in a bit of warm water and adjust decal as needed. Use light pressure.
