During the building of my Mars Probe II I put the decals on the rings before I put the fins on. When I tried to glue the fins on the ring the glue wouldnt hold to she smooth surface of the decals. To fix this I sanded the decal along the line where the fins go and this fixed the problem with the glue having nothing to hold on to.

The directions show the correct way to put it together but me being me jumped ahead. Just wanted to pass this along in case someone else did what I did.

Dan, do you need a new set of decals?
