Decals coming off from Kyosho Dslot43

Postby taskak » Wed Mar 01, 2017 11:44 am

I picked up my Kyosho Corvette #4 to run a few laps with it today and this happened.
I opened the case what comes with these cars and noticed that something dropped to the floor.
I looked what it was and found about 10mm x 10mm piece of yellow "paint" from the floor.
It just came off from the car and dropped like a leaf.
Soon as I touched it it disintegrated to small bits.
It came off from top of the rear wheel.
I noticed that same thing had happened in same spot on the other side of the car too.
Has anyone had the same experience?

Cheers

Aki

Must have missed the final clear coat stage?

Hopefully it's just factory defect and nothing like bad aging.
I thought that these were tampo printed since they need to bend a little to get them mounted to chassis
but I guess they are not.
