      i recently completed the hasegawa mini liner 1:400 air france 747-400 kit. a nice little build. after putting on the decals, i used walthers decal set (sparingly) and all the decals turned pink. i have searched all over for a new set of this scale decal, to no avail. i even tried ahs but the kit is no longer available. does anyone have or know where i may be able to locate the decal of this scale? i would even buy the kit just for the decal. the kit comes with stick on decals as well but they are really useless. how can i save my boeing? many thanks for any help or suggestions. best wishes, carl

      I am sure one of our decal manufacturers will scale down his decal to 1/400th sale for you. F-DCAL comes to mind as they have all three Air France liveries for the 747 (old 1970 "shark tail", 1976 "barcode", 2009 "barcode").

      So many planes, so little time ...

      Walthers decal solvent turning decals pink?
      Any photos? Thats terrible. I remember Microset turning the gold pinstripe on the ATP United decals green which was both a surprise and a bummer.
