Beautiful plane. I love it.

Fantastic, Aracula! How did you do the decals? I like the spotted/disruptive cammo on the wing leading edges.

Decals are a pain, takes a lot of researching, and manipulating pictures to get the desired size and look. Then takes me awhile to print them and coat them in a clear finish before being able to put them on and then more coats of clear to try to blend them to the plane.

They are a pain.

The results are worth the effort for sure.

This was the first plane I had ever done, so appreciate the comments. I learned a lot, and hope to improve on the next plane.

Few more pics of the under belly.
