I seem to remember reading a thread about a certain type of clear coat damaging decals. I don't remember if it was Sandman's decals and what damages the decals.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome back! I built a BT-60, 24mm powered upscale a couple years ago, using a balsa cone from Semroc, and Stickershock decals. No nose weight needed, at least with D/E motors.
