how your decals behaved?

I have a real problem with French markings. This is the 3rd French model I have built from the HiTech/Fornderie miniature group over the last 18 months and all the decals have behaved in the same manner. The Roundals have been very poor, breaking and crumbling on contact with water and needing great care to get off the backing sheet. The other decals however have performed beautifully. No silvering, good adhesion and none of the issues the roundals had. Bizzare! On this kit the manufactures provided 8 roundals for the 6 positions and I needed all 8 as the over wing ones didnt like being cut.

Certainly not a reason to leave these great kits in their box.

Wow, fantastic!

What a jet!

 

Actually I did not notice until just now that the EE Lightning is not the only jet with stacked engines!!

Anyone who dares tackle a FM kit deserves a medal. Without doubt the most difficult models to build.

As was said, those who have never built a FM kit, and modellers.

 

That looks a very fine rendition of an aircraft I had never encountered. Bravo!

We discussed this at the IPMS and only came up with the Short Sperrin as the other aircraft with superimposed turbojets. There are a few rockets and turbojet combinations but only the 3 jets.

 

Many thanks for the comments. It was a bit heavy going at times but I'm very happy with the result.

The immediate postwar years turned out some fascinating designs

 

They certainly did. Hard to get kits for most though. 

 

I'm looking forward to the prototype GB for next year to build some more.
