After the painting was finally sorted I gave the model a couple of coats of hand brushed Klear (Future), then applied the decals. They are pretty good, plenty of stencils and they settled down fairly well, using Micro set and sol. The only problem was with the Stars and Bars, where a white edge showed. I helped to disguise it with a felt pen. Weathering took care of the rest. After the decals were on I applied 2 more coats of hand brushed Klear.
