Disappointed with "Koala" brand white waterslide decal paper. The pigment separates from the applied clear coats and roles up when applying and positioning the decal.

I'm kinda disappointed with the way the decals are turning out. i may just clean them off and get some professionally printed ones. Although, i and kinda running into the end of the string with this engine

Great looking end result mate.
Thank You Scott.
its small ,, but its running smoothly

A final note:
To anyone thinking of doing this , i have three recommendations.
#1 Get the frame and running gear sorted before you do any paint or body work.
#2 Do the final attaching of the detail parts like grab bars AFTER you have done the decals on the front.
#3 Put the glass in last! because it is a pain to have to keep covering up the glass for clear coats and touch ups.
