Well I have finally got the decals on the Ole Cock III. I have to say these Kitsworld decals are some of the best I have worked with.

I knnow I got some of the real fiddly bits left like the pitot tube antenae and the guns but I thought I would post this to show I was at least making a little progress.

Hope yo enjoy them.











Next set should be the completed plane weathered and all. Hopefully my hands will be steady and lite on the next phase..

Hi Paul.
Looks really good!, nice clean build.
Its interesting how with a combination of my individual monitor settings and the lighting in the photo, the camouflage scheme appears almost to be RAF earth/dark green,or possibly grey/green even.
It just goes to show how easily the various camouflage debates can start and progess.

Looks like its going to be a photo finish between Old Cock III and my Lorene build

Looking forward to the finished photos.

Well with a little bit post post shading I am calling her done. So w/o further ramblings here are some pics.











There are also photos posted in the finished build section of the site as well.

I want to say thanks to all the people here who selflessly answered all my hairbrained questions. You guys/ladies really made it fun.

Paul
