After having airbrushed AK Real Color Gloss varnish, I've begun the setting of the decals.
Not finished yet but I will take my time for that...

I find this a good place to ask you all---do you always put on decals in the same sequence, or start in different places on different airplanes? I always start on the bottom, then left or right, then top wing. A silly question, but interesting to me...

Not a silly question Scott, an interresting one indeed!
Habitually I begin with cockades, codes and finish with little ones (servitude, serials...).

But with that Mirage as you can see my method is different. And it's a better one I must say: you bnegin with one side, protect the decals with MicroSol and let dry before to continue... More secure for the good positioning of decals!
