I found a solution
Before trashing the kit I tried several solvents and the one that worked was Tamiya Lacquer thinner. It took some knife work and several applications but it worked okay.
I had the same problem with Roden's 1/144 scale Lockheed Jetstar. Decals were stiff, thick, and were absolutely immune to any and all decal setting solutions. I sent them back to Roden and requested a replacement. They were kind enough to send me one but it was exactly the same as before, so now I have built model with no decals to use on it. Their decals are beautifully printed with excellent colors, but might as well be printed on paper. Useless.
Roden 1/48 Junkers D.1......damned Roden decals either won't sit down or have fractured and started to peel up. Never again will I bother with Roden decals.
Picked up a Heller 1/72 Heinkel He-112 at a yard sale. Crummy kit. The plastic was brittle and cracked at every opportunity. No decals. NOTHING went right. I finally gave up on it and tossed it right into the trash.
Fortunately, only lost a buck on it.
