Not what I planned because the Authentic Decals simply broke apart into molecule sized pieces as soon as they hit the water so...

...Italeri & Eduard decals to the rescue. Eduard ones are glossy and beautifully printed, Italeri (kit) decals are, well - typically Italeri :hmmm .

No matter, a few chips and scratches in the wing roots followed by a couple of semi-matt clear coats and the main airframe will be done, then on to final assembly. Real life permitting, should be all done in ten days or so.

AFN.

Other than the self-destructing decals a thoroughly enjoyable project. Thanks for following along, folks, always appreciated and never taken for granted.
