Yah, But I've never seen them this bad.A good rule of thumb is to give the decals a coat of liquid decal film before applying them. Round 2 kits have had some fragile decals, from time to time.
I’ve had issues with curl too. The best fix I found was mixing a little white glue with warm water and brushing it under the edge of the decal, waiting 30 seconds for the glue to get tacky then tamping the decal down with a cotton swab or micro brush. Never fails.I coated the pylon decals with decal liquid to prevent them shattering, but now they don't settle well and started curling up while drying.
The port side is curling in this photo, but both side curled.
Thanks, do you remember how many loops you cut. krlee says 2 but he does not mention stretching them.Mach7: I read your question about the 22 inch eagle in the other thread, on mine I cut loops off the springs and then stretched them out, one loop at a time until it sat correctly and still extended when "flying". If you just cut off loops until it sits correctly they get too short to fully extend the pads.
