I use Walther's Solvaset.  I'm not sure if there is one that is better than the rest.  I got it and it works for me.

I use Microscale Micro Sol and find it works well. Sometimes I spend a bit of time working the stuff in with a brush and apply several doses. One must be careful though, as some decals will become soft enough to damage.

Tamiya makes decal solutions in two strengths; Mark Fit and Mark Fit Strong. If you are finding your decal solution to be too week, perhaps the Mark Fit Strong will serve your purpose.

Thanks guys for your help. i am having trouble with the large side decals on the Revell early Bronco. Just cant get all the kinks out even with solvaset. Guess I will try the Tamiya Strong.
