Hi, does anybody know anyone who still stocks Solvaset decal setting solution? I know there is Micro Sol but I have always got on well with Solvaset but it seems to be no longer available?

Thanks

I see posts on other forums going back to 2015 bemoaning the unavailability of Solvaset in the UK.

I've always used the Microscale potions - MicroSet, MicroSol, Liquid Film etc. and found they do the job nicely.  My bottles are so old (almost 20 years) the caps cracked and split some time ago, so I ended up buying some small bottles from Amazon and transferring the contents to those.  The new bottles even fitted exactly into the original plastic containers after cutting off the tops :)

I use Humbrol Decalset as well as the MicroSol stuff. Not all decals are Microsol friendly, so it pays to have alternatives.
