Thank you friends!

Well, first of all I've discovered a new photo of the left wing (under copyright; I cannot publish it here...) that shows a different pattern of the three-tone camo... So, I've corrected that; also painted some details and the "false" cockpit on the undersurface. That false cockpit was painted on the undersurface when the three tones camo was applied overall.

Next phase: painting of the tyres.

Thank you!

Today, details were painted: position lights; antennas, tyres... I've lost the front wheel lights of the kit during the building process; so I've scratchbuilded new ones...

First a coat of Pébéo gloss varnish, then decals are set in place. Difficult to place: long time before to remove from their support and very fragile...
 I've also made some micro painting of details I've forgotten until now...

Never ask- do you polish Pebeo coat before apply decals or use decals directly over coat?

I apply decals directly over coat...
