Ok got an update........

Managed to pop over to my mates place today, and after checking his enormus supply of decals ....we were unable to find the tiger head I required..........so I had to scale down the oversized ones I have and printed on clear decal paper i had so hopefully it will look ok on the aircraft...........and transfer well

By employing this I also had to prep the tail with a white backing paint...........so that it will not be transucant........managed to get all that done .....but Photobucket will not let me upload pictures........so when it premits me, I will do so...........for now its pictureless........:)

Anyways the airframe is also done .......and glossed for the decals.............so if all goes well.........I plan to do the decals tommorow..........and complete the build soon........

Thanks and Regards

Mr B

Hi Mr B

you are realy cracking on with this build are'nt you. I take it you have used Alcad II paint for the natural metal finish? Is it polished alluminium you have used over gloss black.? Ive just finished my 1/32 F4E so i'm now putting some attention to the Trumpeter F6 that i'm doing .

Keep up the good work
