Pre-use review...

Ordered, and picked up last night, the "wood-grain (plywood)" decals
in 1/72nd from PropaqTeam, the Czech decal company. First
impressions are favorable. You get two sheets of decals,
approximately 4x3 inches, for around $4.00. They appear thin enough,
but the first use will tell all.

One word of caution with PropaqTeam's decals: don't soak them very
long in water. I usually count to 20, then pull them out, and let
them soak on a tissue, or some such "water absorbtion" material.
Some of their decals just don't work, as well. While building the
Goblin, I decided to try and use their wing walk strips, and they
ended up dissolving in water. Part of that was my fault, since I
wanted to trim off as much extra film as possible.

>From first impressions, I would recommend them. However, I'll
reserve my final comments until I can actually use them.

My initial use will be the cockpit of the Pegaus Roland D.II I'm
about to start (once I find more info on the cockpit...).
