The one thing I didn't like on my Wasp from the start was the crummy looking cowl decals that in my opinion cheapen an otherwise well made helicopter. (I see the newer ones are now coming through with the same scheme but painted: a 100% improvement).
Anyway, I decided to take the decals off and paint the cowl. Well, the faux windshield decals came off without a problem. The rest would not come off with paint remover, acetone, carb cleaner, gasoline: anything!
I wound up painting over them.
So kids, don't try this at home. At least now I have a crummy looking one of a kind paint job.
