Hi all heres a quick tip i thought id share with you , When your doing you decals use a highlighter pen and just put a spot on the instructions over number of the decal after you have done it , That way its easy to keep track of where your upto and you wont miss any of thos little tiny devils

Very useful tip Dave,

I even do it for the parts of plastic and PE, as I often don't follow the order of instructions.

Same here. I use a pen and just draw a single line through the part number. Never thought about doing it for decaling, as 1/48 scale WW11 models just don't seem to have a lot of decals to be concerned with. Now with jets of any era, I can see this as a great tip.

Cheers Joel

Nice tip. I usually cross the items off as I apply them - but your highlighter is much better, because you can still read the numbers.

I'll move this over to "Start Here" where it'll be a ready hand thread for anyone.

All the best
