It's really coming alive now mate, the decals will really bring it all together too.
The kit decals are excellent and settle down really well, this is such a great little kit and you are making a great job of it.
Have you seen the new 1/32 fw-190 yet ? It looks like another hit for Revell

Progress, decals going on like a dream just a dab of Sol & Set on some of the larger ones to pull them into the panel lines, cut the decals really close so hardly any carrier film left to possibly silver, the decals are superb as Pete had already commented, the front windscreen was a real pain in the rear, the gap at the front was ridiculous, even with the armour glass in place, ended up brushing in several coats of Krystal Klear, to build up the gap, added the radio mast, and added Ezee line, then a ruddy disaster, being the clumsy sod I am, dropped the kit and it landed a bit to hard on the undercarriage and snapped both legs clean in 2, had to resort to drilling down the centres of the 2 halves and super gluing on some brass wire, fortunately left no obvious signs of repair, note to self be more careful with nearly finished models. Just need to clear coat to seal in the decals, then some weathering and that should be it.



























Thanks for looking should be finished in the next day or so now.
Gary

Excellent idea. I'm watching season 1 of Hogans Heroes at the moment. All episodes are on youtube and hilarious to watch again. Fawlty Towers is now on my watch list! lol
