I've got a pack of the undecorated 4 wheel Austrains tankers and a set of Shell decals to suit. For those that have already decalled theirs, did you apply the decal straight to the tanker out of the box, or did you apply some form of gloss coat or similar to the model first?
I seem to remember people saying decals don't take well to factory applied paint schemes (I may have that wrong), but more and more models are coming with decals for the end purchaser to apply: Bergs single deckers, Austrains end platform cars, etc.
I understand that the decals will have to be sealed with something after application. Again, what do people suggest.
