P-39 Airacobra Mk.I, RAF Machine No. AH 583, pilot F/O Jaroslav Himr

Since it is a set from the Profi pack series, in addition to changing the marking, I build the model only from parts and accessories from the set.

The construction of the model continues. When I glued the decals, I found that the insignia on the top of the wings have a thin white border in about one third of the circumference.The white border was not visible before the decals were applied.

Very nicely done! That weight for the nose is a great idea. Regarding decals: I started to cut off the clear around them before application. Besides looking better on the finished model, it also generally reveals any registration problems.

I know about trimming decals before applying them. It just didn't occur to me that decals from the Eduard kit would have this problem. Became. At least next time I will know what to watch out for 🙂

I have already fixed the error of decals on the upper surfaces of the wings. Using a cutting compasses, I made a mask and repaired the white parts of the decal by spraying blue paint.

Airacobra is already finished 🙂. As soon as I have time, I'll take photos and put them in the album.

Uříznout ty obtisky kružítkem, moc dobrý nápad 👍. Tento problém bych od Edyho taky asi neočekával.

Thank you Tas! 🙂

to Alec:
It's an older kit. I have not encountered this problem with newer models from Eduard.
