  Danny, are you using the peel and stick decals that Bandai distributes with
the kits? If so, the only way to prevent them from looking fake is to not use
them at all. Unfortunately, unless you are extremely good at hand painting
markings, or steal water or Dry transfer decals from other kits for the generic
markings, you are stuck.
