Decal Removal

Does anyone have a safe method of removing decals (crumpled and dried out) without damaging the paint/surface under it?

As long as they haven't been clear coated try micro set (blue one)

You could try a strip of sellotape over the top of the decal & rip back, worked for me on a old kit!😀

I've done the sellotape thing but only on enamels, not sure how it would go with acrylics, one hears so many horror stories after masking, let alone sellotape.

I tried using Microset but really didn't work much. I had used Microsol when I put the decal down and I think it worked too well. Used a bit of Tamiya tape which took some off but don't want to push my luck and start pulling up the paint. Any other suggestions?
