Hi people,

Again I must hold my hand up for not posting anything lately.

Ok, started this kit last year and had the well documented issues during assembly about getting the front section to fit to the rear. Flexes muscles and says arghhh I can beat that. lolz. What an idiot I was but god loves a trier :).

Kit was put down numerous times until I could get some time with it. So I got it primed and started decaling and noticed that there were no decals for the green on the nose, wings and fuselage. I thought damn it how can I get them now as I bought it second hand. Turns out they don't give you them in the kit (.)(.). Long story short and about 30 different bottles of green trying to match back to the green decals I just gave up trying an exact match. This is how it turned out and I know there should be a little pin stripe of black on the nose but I'm just not that good lol.

i recommend you buy the Hasegawa kit instead of this kit lol, but €25.00 [smilie=thumbsup02.gif]

The ones on the fuel tank? Just cag bird flash

the red ones are not in register they are so small. I cant see anything in the daco book that colour either but this aircraft is not referenced in it.
