...Then matt varnish and I removed the cockpit masks...

...And big problem appeared!

When I've used milipu for the rear wheel bay, some particles of miliput faled into the interior of the kit and due to the manipulations, became fixed on the interior of the canopy!  :-wall :-kr

After some moments of BIG nervosity  :-danger :-danger :-danger

...I carefuly removed the canopy, being very attentive not to damage de putty that was linking the canopy to the fuselage...  :-help

With a Q-tip I remived the miliput particles and replaced the canopy.

Minor damages were masked with silver paint, simulating some chipping paint  :-ok

Then I used pastels and... This is it!

For the base I used the squadron insignia with UK and Belgian flags
