Hi guys, jusrt added some new pics from the build, and to be honest I've had it with tiger stripes.
But, for all of you who want to build this one also, the decalling. To be honest I bought the kit 2 times because I also have the decals for the 'Battle of Britan' one/ So don't do what is described on the plan. I started like that and it didn't work out, restarted with the second set of decals from the second set.
How I did now, well you can see a little clue on the last picture.
Tsis is the way it did it.first paint the front edges from the tail, canards and air intakes with Revell Enamel 374.
Start with the decals on the tail, these you can fully place in one pieces, but cut of the grey part, don't throw this away because you need the yellow formation lights.
Next put the decals on the wings, I started from the wingtip inwards an i cutted them just afther each 'scratch' marking and try to remove as much clear film as possible.
Now you start to connect the stripes on the wings, from one to another, but cut out stripe by stripe, remove the clear film. This makes it possible for you ta abjust the decals a little bit to make it fit. Don't worry with little ornga gap between, when everything is dry, you touch up with black paint/ So put all the stripes on form the bacj till just on the front wingroot.
Now flip the model, and here you start with the decals around the front nose bay, also try to remove as much as possible clear film. Then proceed towards to nose. Then work your way towards the rear of the plane, As you can see on the picture from the underside, i didn't use certain narrow decals, e.g. the place for rocket, the hinges, and the outher pylons. Again these will be brush painted to match the stripes.
By removing the clear film, you have pro and cons.
The pro is that you have al smaller more manageble bits and with each stripe you place you can dajust little by little..
The con is that it takes a h$ll of a lot of time.
Hope this is any usefull tor those interested.
