Tried all of those methods on that model and the odd shaped pieces of tissue made alignment very difficult. Paul suggested ironing the tissue onto glue stick that was applied and allowed to dry. When that didn't stick I just used the same method with the spray adhesive.

I used the same UUH glue stick. Had to go to an art store to find it. Goes on pink, dries clear and as soon as it gets wet, it turns pink again and the tissue falls off. Well, that's what happened with mine...

Paul says he doesn't have any problems with the method and now you tell me the same thing. I must be doing something wrong or it could be my models are stored in the hot and humid garage and the humidity has time to penetrate the adhesive?

Tissue had 4 coats of Krylon clear applied and even after getting wet enough for the glue to release the ink hasn't bled at all.

I'm hoping the dope will penetrate the tissue on the Camel and moisture proof the glue stick. If not, I'll strip and recover the thing and paint it!
