I'm just finishing up my 1/12 Atomic City Mercury. I finished applying the decals and spent most of an evening popping bubbles and applying additional microsol. I thought I got them all but I just sprayed on my dullcote and some more showed up in the clear areas (it's heck getting older and having early cataracts). My question is can I still pop the bubbles and apply more microsol even after the Dullcote application? I've never tried that particular procedure before. Any advice will be most appreciated.
Thanks,
Mike

If the dullcoat was lacquer based, you might still get results with more micro-sol. Brush it on, and maybe try gently burnishing down the bad spots on the decals. Decal carrier film is lacquer already and Micro-Sol works on softening the lacquer film.

Worst case is nothing happens at all.

Just to let you all know how this turned out, the Microsol worked just fine on the Dullcoted decals. You have to be a little more careful that usual, the bubble areas are a little more brittle than normal but the result turned out just fine. Sigma 7 looks just great on my display shelf (with the full escape tower) on the base from Gerath Designs.

Thanks for the input.
Mike
