I was wondering, do you think Micro sol or microset or some other decal adhesive is neccesary for proper decal installation. I am decideding whether to buy some or not?

No not Microsol. Go for Microset. This is what you need.

I concur with shone -
You defintely gotta have the Set
but a bottle of Sol wouldnt hurt either

Sol & Set are synonmous, but subtly different
You will use the set on all decals to help get rid of the edge, and snug her down
SOL really does lightly reduce or act as a solvent on the decal to increase surface conformity

I got mine mail order from squadron.com
i recommend you at least try it

if you like it you'll probably use 2:1 the number of Set to Sol

I use both set and sol and it is always worth adding both...start with the set and then the sol..everything will just mold to the kit...Why take a chance ?? for the little they cost it's not worth not using it.

I suggest using them, as stated earlier-- they are not that pricy and the result speak for themselves.
