I checked separte decals from body work. I keep gently press and smooth with decal from body.
Lot of problem with this decals from Revell
You will checked the box with photo - images or model magazines
I has fixed side stripe decals with side panels with intake panels, and smooth cut off this decal with mirco sol treatments with cheapest cotton swabs, and do n't bother I can make with touch up paint with decal's gap edges.
I do n't like Revell model car with assembly and terrible, but no recommended decals without separate or cut off. Good recommended with Tamiya, model cars
1, This stripe decal on water on my dish, without separate 2, Before, trailed on bodywork with panels, and fixed decals 3, After decal fixed, cut off edges from side panels and get touch up paints job

I has put another towing ring for front spoiler on further and do n't bother Side view camera housing, Ah!, It should be carbon fibre housing because C/F camera housing light than Alum camera I do n't looked this terrible spot of decals with body, as Revell's fault. I has wrestling with C/F with steel rollover cages insert in cockpit, as I'm frustrated it
1, Final assembly with Chassis and cockpit 2, Looked this cockpit with details 3, Towing ring insert with rear diffuser with C/F paint surface
After final bodywork has married with chassis and I has take to notice this body as not right fit. I think rollover cage''s caused discomfort with roof inside. It was not right fit to small pins from rollover cages but not enough insert to hole from cockpit. I has remove rollover cage from cockpit, and reduced C/F fence and new brass rods fits all rollover cages as enough insert to hole with long pins. I'm situation over not right body with chassis Why I do n't like Revell model cars because it was crappy moulded and lack to designed with no right assembly it. I'm very frustrated with my problem with fits moulded pieces like crappy
I will give my idea over secured with body work with cockpit floor for small screws, where is I used fixed small screws inserts with body work and chassis with pieces with Revell, on previous builds (Ferrari F2002, Chevrolet Corvette C5R, and C6R) I have trailed new brass rods for rollover cages insert cockpit assembly, and re sealed inside cockpit with front bulkhead with PVA with superglue, prevent to breaking it. I have drill in four holes with cockpit and bodywork's protected doors trim on before I will being build again it on further. I will re fixed with decal for rollover fences with C/F decals. I will getting off Revell's chest!
I can't excit watching last DTM highlight on digital TV on this morning, what happened to race, on last weekend I will worked my Audi A4 with massive problem
I has mend and re assembly rollover cages and cockpit after problem with caused it. I has fixed brass rods with rollover cages pins, as long pins can fit insert. I has fixed bodywork insert with cockpit with small screws. and I do n't look this. I know crappy assembly with this model car. After assembly with bodywork on chassis. I do n't look again this. I'm re views model magazines about Audi A4 -09. I'm very felt it I'm always situation this problem with rear panels lacks of body work, as do n't look this
I do n't agreed with Revell over quality model, turn Freddy Revell called Nightmare of Kraut St,
