Micro set is a very versatile decal setting solution that does several things to the microscale decals to improve application. Micro set should be applied to the surface of the model where you will be sliding off the decal. Micro set prepares the surface with special wetting agents that cuts the oils in new paint and converts the adhesive on the back of the decal to a stronger and more lasting one. And finally, micro set slightly softens the decals film to make it more flexible so that it can conform better to the model’s surface. Better adhesion by the decal to the model prevents tiny air bells from occurring and results in an invisible carrier film or the so called ‘painted on look’.


  • Brush Micro Set on the model where the decal is to be applied, then dip decal in water and slide off backing paper into position on the model.
  • Carefully brush more Micro Set on top of the decal.
  • Wait a few minutes for the decal to soften, then press the decal down with  a ice of moist paper towel. Repeat as necessary, or use Micro Sol for more decal softening strength.

To Remove Decals:
Brush Micro Set on the decal to be removed. Keep applying until the decal loosens, then rub off or list the edge of the decal and peel off with the tip of a hobby knife. Works Only on decals that have Not been overcoated.

Micro Set Decal Solvent by Microscale Industries MI-1 MI1

Tom Mercer
Micro Set

I only gave it four stars because the solution roles off of the glossy varnish. I had to keep applying it several times in order to get enough solution on the model. It does however soften the decal nicely.

Decal positioning and fixing

Micro Set works great, easy to position your decal and as it dries it pulls them tight to where you want them. Finish off with Micro Sol, perfect.

Micro sol and set

I have used both microSol and micro set for 50 years and like them. I have not yet used the ones that I have recently bought from you but I have no reason to believe that it is any different from the ones I have used previously
