Sorry, my stencil comment was misleading. It has some stencilled personal markings and zaps, and things like the WZL-2 overhaul facility stencil...not maintenance and instruction stencils apart from an armament panel. Stencils would definitely be a welcome addition. For those interested, the new Stratus book, No.21, featuring the commemorative schemes, has a full description of all the stencil data and placement.
As for the additional pilots honoured, I'll be interested to see who you choose. Boleslaw "Mike" Gladych might be a good one, having served with the Polish AIr Force in Poland, France and England, and then becoming a bit of a legend with the 56th Fighter Group flying P-47s.

And the Intruder is officially underway!
Got the cockpit tub and aft deck glued together last night. Just like I remember with the 1/48 Hobby Boss, the angled fit looks intimidating but the parts line up nicely.
Also got the intakes together and test-fitted the AMS FOD covers. Some trimming down of the resin pour block is recommended, but once it's whittled away just enough, the covers fit nicely. Wish I could say the same about the intakes...rough joins top and bottom that will certainly require clean-up work. I seem to remember this from the 1/48 kit as well.
As for size...the Intruder is not small.
For kicks, I set it beside the Zulu Viper.
More to come...
