Peter's Beaufort Mk.VIII (Peter's Planes)

#1

Post by pbhawkin »

AND lastly my Super detailed Beaufort has also been languishing in the clutter on the workbench since February, see this thread
( http://www.kampfgruppe144.com/phpBB3/vi ... f=3&t=3786 ).
One antenna broken off and replaced during this time.
Waiting for suitable decals (why is it that we have so may issues with decals!?).
The end is in sight with decal maker having updated his machinery to print more opaque White and accurate colours for national insignia. As well as having all the weathering paints I need having also arrived.
I just need to apply the decals before I can do any weathering or oil and fuel stains.
Regards
Peter

Nice! Looking forward to seeing the end result. I think this was my favorite build for 2015.

thanks!! :D
Years not over yet though! Maybe get the decals in my hands prior to Christmas.
I don't want to rush putting on decals that are not right (too translucent) and spoil the look.

Peter

It's the little detail of the opened cockpit window that really brings it to life for me ... and the rest of course. :)
