The reference (is that's a cultural reference) is lost on me.

C, I think there is something odd about the stance of the landing gear on the Questor airplane.  The airplane sat dead level normally, it would stay on the runway until you got to Chile without a pretty good rotation, and sat very close to the ground.  Here's a front view from a brochure I've had since about 1957.  And an interior drawing, though you are well past that. Most often the two aft seats were replaced by full width 3 place seat.

I see with joy John that you belong to the "References After the Facto" school of modeling, my dear friend.

Your information is going to be very useful in another 100 years when another modeler tackles this kit.

My gratitude knows no boundaries.

(nice drawings!)

Cheers

Yep, good to see you back and raring to go.🙂 I am back in my seat after the intermission but a bit disappointed.....no ice cream.😒

:elephant::pilot:

 

Just need a little time to put things in order before I am allowed on the building board.

And also have to pay bills (worse no doubt than getting no ice-cream)

Cheers

The masks are applied without any issues, and the areas not to be painted red are further masked:

Decal application begins:

Other details like anti-glare panel, props, wire antenna, Pitots, lights, exhausts, nav lights, etc., are added:

Tomorrow hopefully when all is dry I can take some photos:

The decals behaved very well. I just added the black anti-icing booths from spares.

Looks great Moa.

I can't help but notice that the decals have matt finish? What do you use after decals to blend it all in?
