Well, I've finally got the decals on. I forgot how fiddly decals can be - this lot took me about three sessions!
And as I was doing it, I discovered that the wing walks were already provided as decals - I didn't need to mask 'n paint them after all!
Interestingly, the canopy doesn't sit right - the pilot's in the way. So it's ever so slightly off centre. Don't tell anyone! There is practically no indication on the canopy itself to even attempt painting the front shield frames, so...I didn't.
Now all I gotta do is some light weathering and get some of that decal stuff from Andy to take the shine off, so to speak.
And to start decalling the Hurricane.
What have I learnt through all this? Lightly undercoat the whole plane first before trying to paint on thin acrylic paint!
