Thank you Roland. At least 50% of the praise go to David Funke for helping me design the artwork and printing this immaculate decals.

Another creative outbreak on your bench ! A shame that Cadbury's and Hershey's choc racplanes could only be flown under refrigerated conditions to aviod meltdown... 🙂 Rumours say that Hershey's pilot John D.( Doe)Nut could'nt be stopped from nibbling on the cockpit interior.... 😄

At home I have at least 200 Humbrol tins. At least ten of those are reds and ten of those are deep blues not to mention two or three purple. Despite of this I experimented two hours or more with different bases and combination to match the violet of the decals (THX David for printing of the wonderful decals!).
Crimson (H20) in combination with Baltic Sea blue (metallic, H52) and a little bit of white finally resulted in matching the hue.

Thank you Mates. Indeed the most time consuming task (painting) is done.
Hanno: Sadly, the unusual tastiness of the entire aircraft caused the complete vanishing of the project into -literally- nothing. So it is all just a sweet dream... 🙂

Yeah, yeah, sad, but unavoidably true..... but, on the other hand: the first ever recorded successful complete recycling of an entire aircraft in history ((((😄)))

Gentlemen: thank you very much. You have a Race🙂
"Beside the mainstream": exactly because I think one more Mk XIV in grey/green would look just like all the other 36 already built...

One can do a NMF... is the size difference that obvious with regards to spits from other manufacturers?

David Funke
Well done, Sir!
