So I am still in an initial BAR phase, and am having to adjust to things like plastic nose cones (which I don't care for), plastic fins (which are growing on me) and bigger E-G rockets (which are great!). Today, though, I went to finish two skill level 1-2 Estes kits (Patriot and Redstone) and found that they employ not water-applied decals, but peel and apply stickers. I am just not liking the look at all, with this big shiny plastic patchwork over each rocket. I have just stopped working on the Redstone, as it had me putting black and white stickers over the fin area. White stickers on white paint, I kid you not. In that case, I think I will back out, tape and simply paint the black on. I just yesterday finished a 13mm engine ASP V2 in black and white and it came out looking very good. I am going to have to start checking which kits have these stickers and avoid if possible. I would like to build more NASA models, though, and I know they will rely heavily on some decal or another. I am thinking about maybe the Semroc Saturn 1B next. Have people figured out a better way to apply/cover these modern Estes stickers so that they look decent? I just not feeling it for the stickers right now. Thanks!
