The 219 definitely looks different in a natural metal finish. Great work, Miguel! I like the white spiral on the red spinners. No doubt that tested your decal application abilities ... it would definitely test mine! ;)

Thank you all!

Smeg, as I had modified the shape of the spinners there was no way the spiral was going to sit properly so I put it in a way that didn't look too bad, cut off the excess at the rear end a painted the curl at the tip. If I had tried to put it properly then yes, it would have been a real test!! In fact, I have already been thinking that when I do build a "real" machine, I will have to paint the spiral myself since the decal won't conform to the corrected shape of the spinners and that will be fun :lol: !
