Looking good now bud, it's going to be a very colourful model when finished. You are making a great job of masking and painting this tricky scheme. :thumbsup2:

Very impressed with your masking! Sharp and crisp. I think you made the right choice to mask and paint the star as I think the blue would have shown through many decals. Not sure how opaque Jet decals are. Like you I'm not sure about the gold either, I think it should be a dark yellow colour but it doesn't detract from the overall finish.

Nice to see this one finished!

Cheers,

Ian
