How to re-fix body stickers?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

is there an easy way to re-fix stickers that start to peel off from lexan bodies? When building a model, this is always a hard fight for me. Plain surfaces are no problem, but rounded sections and corners are always a big problem. The stickers will stick for 1-2 weeks and then start to peel off. I always clean the body and also my fingers before applying stickers, but I could figure out how to do it right.

Not sure about re-sticking but, on future builds, warm the decals with a hairdryer or hot-air gun once they're positioned - that'll soften the decal briefly, and when they cool down they'll retain their new shape

Yes, that's the stuff. Works also great for fabric. And shoes, too (seriously).

Using a heat gun has solved this issue for me, it's made applying decals significantly more enjoyable.
