This arrived on Monday View attachment 65486 and I'm really looking forward to starting it.

The kit is done in yellow? plastic, I suppose it's for those who don't want to paint it, and the moulding is very thin which is a little worrying.

The sprue shots View attachment 65487View attachment 65488 and the detailing is nicely fine, but the thing that has got me the most is the decal sheet View attachment 65489 black blobs everywhere !!!!

Think this is either going to be great or the biggest mess I've ever done.

Tony.

Nice one. The decals will be fine just take your time and check what goes where before you plonk it down.

Sorry Tony I had to have a little chuckle when I saw those decals, but I'm sure you will be fine with them. But it looks a good kit, apart from the colour that is

Nice to have you onboard

I would be in the same boat, either the model would be a triumph of decal work or would be a total mess...good luck mate.

View attachment 65500 On deck chair pulled up this looks interesting Tony good look with all those decals I feel I would have to apply all of those in a number of visits to the bench as opposed to one sitting. I am sure with your skills and a " little" patience it will turnout beautifully

thanks for the good words guys.

This will be fun I think.

Fun (definition) - lots of hair pulling, nail biting and possibly some swearing :cheeseygrin:

Tony.

Those decals are generally quite big. I did one of these for daughter No1 (she has a think about tigers) and just sat myself down in front of a decent film, and got stuck in.

The instrument decals look great tony, you'll be getting a bit more time modelling what with the rain putting the kibosh on the gardening!!! tony
