Decals done. Great look IMHO...  :-love
The only problem is that I've made a big mistake, and I discovered that after having placed the decals: propeller is quadripale and not tripale...
Fortunately I own a quadripale propeller from another kit but I have no replacement decals.
So, I will have to choose: a splendid bur unaccurate triplae propeller, or an accurate but less splendid quadripale one...
I think I will paint the quadripale and decide after  :))

Yes my friend, "deform" must be "accurate"  :))

Firstly, I found in my spare parts a quadripale propeller. I just adapted the rear, to be introduced in the engine of the "cute".
Secondly: remember my "Corsearth", the cute Corsair I transformed into a roadster? Well; I had put the propeller into my spare parts. And (hazard does not exist!) a French friend sent me some days ago another cute Corsair that he lost the canopy... So, with two spare propellers, I can create a quadripale...

Here is a photo of the three propellers. The "cute" quadripale must be finished yet, with putty or miliput to marry the blades with the axe.

...And good new too for the blades decals: I own an 1/48th Corsair with an Eagle Strike decal sheet for 5 or 6 Corsairs; the blades decals are provided for all the decos and there are fitting very well on the cute blades!
