Spanjaard thanks, I am stuck now due to airbrush problems.... I will probably need a new one, and i will need to wait a bit for that :(

Bart Goesaert looks nice so far... to bad about the AB. With Aires the cockpit is ok dimensionally, but the thickness of the plastic is too thick then...

Spanjaard yes, it took a lot of sanding to get the aires cockpit in place. and I bit more probably would have helped too. fuselage without it fitted real nice

Spanjaard well, it is finally finished. i have learnt a few things about Alclad, clear coating, and specially about weathering, some not in the best way, but usually the hard way is the most permanent.... washes affected some of the decals, because the layer of alclad aqua gloss was obviously too thin. I will give a try with Future next time ;)
there is another album with just pictures of the finished model.

Spanjaard thanks James. yes, that was nto easy. i cut the big decal in several pieces, to make it easier. but getting them to match was also tricky.
the decal is really thin, which is great because it looks better once done. but the problem is that if you handle it too much, it can break too
in fact, some days after i finished, a tiny bit of it dissapeared. just on white square and a blue one. i had to repair the damage with with paint. it is not perfect, but it will have to do.
