These are Dry Transfer decals. What you do is cut out the marking and place
it on the model where you want it to go, then rub with the handle of a paint
brush or something similar. You have to rub hard and make sure that the
decals are free of the backing completely before you pull it off, or else
you rip the decal. While they are a lot of hastle, they still look a heck
of a lot better than the peel and stick, but I still wish Bandai would
someday do some wet transfer decals...
