Very nice job on your cockpit! I wish I had seen yours before I finished mine, I could have copied! Ha ha!

Nice so far,check your reference as you have a pic of T5 which was heavier.(pressurised cockpit).

@David Taylor, I know. Unfortunately Warpaint only has drawings of T.3 and 4 with retracted gear. But I assume that they have the same tire size.

@Keith: You say that one should avoid the dayglo decals. What's wrong with them?

@Felix: They worked great on the flat surfaces, but are very thick and brittle. I tried every trick I knew but never got them soft enough to bend/conform to the leading edge of the wing. Instead they cracked into small pieces, and color was near impossible to match.

@Keith: Thanks for your warning. Luckily, I have two sheets. I'll try my best with all the chemicals I have.

Never seen the Blufix stuff myself, but watch out whether it doesn't dry inside the box. See my Rocket UV Glue adventure with Caravelle:
