Hi John
Yes the Decal setter would help,the instructions are very good,they say,a gloss coat
first then the decal and then the fixer,followed by another gloss coat and then a matt
coat.
It was cutting round them without leaving too much matterial and then handling them.
One of the smallest is about 1.5mm x 0.5mm :lol:
I could barely see it sticking out of my finest tweasers and after a dip in the water
and leave like it said for an hour on some paper towel,it was gone.
Like looking for a white hair on a Polar Bear :D
You only get one shot aswell
The Radio mouldings are excellent quallity and detail,I reached the limits of my eyes
and fingers :)
Cheers
Phil

After finishing all those sets you deserve a pint. They look great.

Phil,

Lots of work done on the additional seats. A few sets under construction. Off skiing next week so will have a chance to plan the finishing parts. Should finish in April. Driver view ports almost complete also. Then the gyro compass stand and maybe the gyrocompas but I think this was kept in a wooden box :) Easier.

Hi Yves
Looking at the drawings in my books,it looks like it was part of the Final
configuration(Early 1944)

Hello Phil, I would echo the comments.....your modelling skills are superb. A most interesting build and well worth following. Some very fine detail.
Thanks again for all your help......Mick
