Roland Sachsenhofer The first two pictures document, what happened in the very first minutes of applying the kit decals. Well...
I had a second variant with a decal set for Britannias from Caledonian, made by "26 decals". The worked quite fair. For the cabin windows I did use the decal variant from the 26-sheet. I did not use the Caledonian markings from the beginning because I had no idea how to correct a certain color-problem. Can you find out, what is wrong?

Łukasz Gliński That's why I prefer to paint the bigger stripes if I can. On the other hand - many thanks for testing the 26 stuff before I started it

Juergen Klinglhuber not sure about the colour issue - the yellow seems to be "different " on the first pictures....

Roland Sachsenhofer Jürgen, he explanation is: there should be a fine white line running along the lower edge of the golden band - also below the elegant curvature along the bow. It would be a lot of work to paint this precisely beforehand, because there is no white printed on the decals.
Lukasz I really enjoyed doing!

Beautiful, wonderful, lovely built and choice of subject...Roland
Roland Sachsenhofer A few last picture of the Britannia being build; last "finishing touches" will be applied, but more or less Britannia is in the home strait. Wheel struts have got some wiring- a little bit on the thick side I guess

Guy Rump Great build Roland, it was a Britannia that my parents travelled to Cyprus on in 1960, they loved it.

Roland Sachsenhofer Finished at last! What an experiential project! The whole thing was a test drive for "bigger" 1:144 projects: a C-124 Globemaster and a Cargomaster are to follow. But also this construction was really fun. Thanks for your comments and your interest!
