Spent sometime last night tweaking the decal panel lines so they look painted on and more realistic. I’m very happy with...

@Bruce Huxtable - Yes, I am very delight with the result. In fact, I am really happy with the community on scalemates. Everyone is so supportive and provides great advice. I thank you and everyone who has supported the few projects I have done so far. With the tips and tricks I have learned from everyone I have seen a significant increase in the quality of my projects. I'm going to post A side by side comparison...

very nice pity about the canopy

@charlie whitten - it is a pity. I haven't taken pictures yet, but I have drilled new antenna mast hole a few millimetres further back on the spine and filled the old hole. Hopefully I will be able to blend the paint adequately enough to hide blemish. After this is done, the canopy will fully retract enough so that even fat pilots can get into the cockpit 🙂

Gorgeous job on the finish. Was that done using alclad?

Many thanks for your comments guys!

@Tom - I used AK's Xtreme Metal range - similar but gives more coverage and feels more durable although the Polished Aluminium was fighting me along the way
