    Hi guys,

    I have a question about the insignia stickers.
    How are the water appliet ones?
    I know stickers will loosen and come of over the years.
    So i like to know how the water versions are.
    Which one should i take?

    sorry about my english.
    i know that appliet is not written like this, but i don't know how to spell it.

    Water applied stickers / slide decals can be tricky, but, if careful, they are superior to stickers. I've only used them a few times myself, because regular stickers from are just faster and easier... and I'm lazy. :D 

    They are worth the work, and this link might help answer some of your questions:

    Water slides are also alot easier to mess up. I lost track of how many sheets I messed up when I was into building Star Trek model kits.
