Vulcan Shuttle - getting hacked off

The coat of varnish ain't worked. The decals haven't stuck at all well and flake off with the gentlest of handling - as you can see here.
Have stemmed it a bit by brush painting on gloss varnish, which is acting like a glue to hold them down.
But i'm on the top of the Command Module now and the compound curves are everywhere and the clingfilm effect will be VERY noticible.
Seriously thinking now of jacking it in, stripping it back to the bare plastic, and go my own way with a colour scheme and have has it as a stolen shuttle, maybe used by a bounty hunter or something.
Would mean its dwn to me which and how the decals would go.
