Really depends on how willing a particular decal is to cooperate. Some don't need it at all, some need to be drenched to settle in around complex curves. If the decal is thin enough, using a blow dryer to apply heat can also help.

Be careful with decals containing mettalic flake such as the Jet Decal Thai Royal barge, or Continental gold tail sheets. The acetone in Micro Set will react with the metal flake and turn it green! Micro Sol on the other hand will not harm the decal.

Another "trial and error" lesson learned!
