The first decals are now wrinkled and have got air underneath, where they were first smooth on the kit. Even after 6 coats of Micro Sol, still wrinkles and no smooth result. I didn't touch the decals when wet and let the coats dry for hours and also overnight. The newly applied decals went a bit better, but also not very good. By far not the promissed painted on look. The decals now look li
