More lovely work here. It's starting to look something really smart. Thanks for the extra info Jari it's the details like these that are the big problem for me as I do mainly AFVs and not so many aircraft.

Decals time! Caracal decal sheet has a very thin thickness so that Microset is more useful than Gunze decal solution (too strong)

After that, I got a Humbrol acrylic clear cote before applying artistic oils (brown, black and tan) as weathering...

Now it's time for a matt cote to preserve the artistic oils. Later I'll get a satin cote over rivets&panels to give a good contrast....
