  1. Gaz, The Aviattic decals do wrap around the edges, but barely. Not much overlap between the top & bottom. You have to be careful with your placement to get the overlap. I use Micro set & a hair dryer. You can also use water, you don't want to lay the decals on a dry surface so you can position if needed. Be careful touching before they have set, as the decals will stretch. Larry
  2. I was actually able to get mine from Squadron; https://www.squadron.com/1-32-Avionix-A-6A-Cockpit-p/blc32061.htm Took a bit to get it, but did actually arrive.
  3. Karim, Glad to hear the shoulder is improving. Nice to see you back at the Albatros as well, great modelling as usual. I never did get to email Alex about the Barnyard decals, have to do that here soon. I did buy some of the new Proper Plane wood decals. They are nice, a little to dark for my taste for an Albatros DV fuselage, but would be fine for other builds; ie Felixstowe, Alb BII, etc. Keep up the great work & good luck with the rehab. Larry
  4. Excellent finish on that! Great build as well. Thanks for posting.
  5. Robert, Very nice build. Great finish as well. One of the best kits I have built. Thanks for posting.
  6. Alex, Yes, I received mine about a week ago. I was the one who sent you a photo of the crushed box the decals shipped in. The decals survived fine, so no harm. Larry
  7. Great build ! Really like to engine. Looks like you riveted the forward fuselage ? Thanks for posting.
  8. Mark, Not difficult to use. Just a little care is all. Not much different than applying regular decals. The prep work adds to the finished product. Check out my Albatros builds.
  9. Mark, The Uschi decals are great. Before applying, you need a gloss painted surface, not bare plastic. They are also translucent, so what paint you put down will affect the final appearance. I usually use a off white or very light tan as a base coat. You can also vary the base coats for a variation of the final panels. I usually cut the panels slightly oversize, then trim when installed & dry. I use Microset when applying. After the position is good, use a hair dryer to set them & also conform to any details under. Be careful when applying, as the decals can stretch. Larry
  10. John, I added the hydraulic plumbing after I assembled the wheel wells on mine. Drilled out the fittings on the manifold & actuators before assembling, then fitted the piping. Then paint & weathering. Larry
  11. Vincent, What color did you use to paint the seat body? Custom mix, or a available bottle paint? Larry
  12. Great build ! The rigging turned out well. Can see how it took some time, quite a few wires to daa. Thanks for posting.
  13. Great build. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Miloslav, Another masterpiece ! The paint , finish & weathering are exceptional. Thanks for posting.
