Francky And you know, the paint job I've done is just perfect compared to my normal level of painting (well, airbrushing actually, i would hate ruining the paint.

Augie Let me have a think.. do you have any micro set? that *should* work to release the decal, if we can get the future coat off. future should come off with Windex on a q-tip.. just rub over the decal to remove the future coat, then use the micro set to loosen it off..
thats about best I can think of

Francky I have micro set and sol, already tried, no solution, and the future is only under the decal, not on top of it.
I put on one solid layer of future and then started to put on decals. I stopped when realising quality was very poor; I bought some good aftermarket decals but can't get the old monsters of.

Christoph Kunz I think the only way is very careful sanding. I would try micromesh polishing cloths. And some tape for the surrounding area.

Augie Could try masking tape.. I've had it lift decals off before

Clifford Keesler Good to know the kit decals are crap, as I have that kit also. I will invest in some aftermarket decals. I have also had masking tape lift off decals, like Augie said.

James C I second Augie's masking tape suggestion. Ordinary Tamiya tape should be enough to lift the decals without disturbing the paint beneath. I learned this the hard way on one of my early builds

JD From my experience with future aka Pledge, is that it will dissolve in water if you soak it for 10-20 minutes. It will begin to turn white first, and since you have used enamels underneath, it may be worth trying, and hopefully the decals will come off underwater.
