    GENERIC Question: Who makes the best decals?

    I am not fond of micro cutting close to the design and prefer the traditional decal with a clear layer.

    Also not fond of fragile decals breaking up into shards at the mere touch.

    Just got the same catalog. 1:72 scale Airfix BoB set looks good. Comes with 12 acrylic paint pots and more!
