Beeeoooootifull, what a view to see, that is just a fantastic result on this kit, hope to be able to achieve this myself (.....i don't think so.....), congratulations on your build.

That’s a beauty! I’m at the decaling phase of the same kit at the moment, but I have done an early RAAF machine with the lighter grey RAM joins - it’s been a masking nightmare of epic proportions!

 

I really like the FOD guards which add a lovely splash of colour.
