Default Re-attaching decals on plastic models

I am building an Academy 1:72 F-14 and a couple of decals have begun to curl a bit around some edges. Anyone know of a good adhesize to re-attach these wayward parts? I tried to wet them again, but these areas just dry out and don't stay attached to their surfaces.

Here try this but if it works you will need to clearcoat

General rule of thumb is to apply decals to a gloss surface
