Good evening

Today I placed the decals .

As the Carpena decals were definitely of no use I had to use a mix of decals from the kit and from my decals sheets stash :

Very nice indeed. What problems did you have with the Carpena decal sheet? I know that when I have used them in the past on one side of model I would be able to apply the decal fine, whilst the corresponding decal on the other side would break apart and I would have t work to get it together again correctly.

Good morning Jabba

 The Carpena decals I wanted to use (Unit insignia , nose and tail numbers ) disintegrated when I placed them in the water I managed to replace them with decals from the kit and from my stash ..

 

Best regards

Patrice

Patrice,

 

Yet another superb effort and I take my hat off to you sir!

 

Very convincing effort, got to love the F1 in that scheme!

 

I wish I could work at your rate but real life keeps getting in the way!

 

Well done!

Good evening Wez

  Thank you for your comment , I must admit that I am not totally pleased by my paint I wish I could have done a paint work that would match better the pics of the real aicraft ..

 Regarding my work rate I also have real life duties and it took me almost 2months to complete thids build ..

 

I am going to place the pics in the gallery section right now ..

Best regards

Patrice
