Thanks Neil and Jerry for your help .

I have the In detail book from an Ian Allan sale a few years back .A good buy for a fiver. Found a nice colour photo of red C in luftwaffe colours Schilachtflieger .The sand colour squigle is very dense and broad .Going to do a test paint on some plastic card to see if it is pleasing to the eye though as an almost continuous line it should be easier to do than stoping and starting on the kit.

Neil do you have a top down profile or photo as its the over spray over markings that i cant make out? I think its on pg 120 &121 .

The kit arrived today ...orderd it 2 days ago. I have never seen a resien kit with such small pore stubs. The quality of parts is near faultless and packaging in the typical cottage industry box leaves little room for improvement.

Nothing rattles around . vac canopy is clear and stiff with sharp lines for ease of painting.

The insructions ,well this is a different matter. I believe they are rather a back of envalope job ..make that a small envalope and a partly dried up felt tip pen. If you had the Dragon bf110 insructions done in a Jerry Rutman style it would be the perfect storm!!!
This does mean reserch will have to be done ,but not for the sake of it but to find what goes whhere.

I am snding this kit to the top of my to do list after i finish my newly started eduard FW190

regards
Alistair
