I'm sitting here doing 4 projects at once and now I want one of those too. A nicer scheme than the green. Are the decals hand cut or computered?
But my record is 5 days for a diesel eindecker; it didn't look like that, though

It would have been an odd sort of Eindecker if it had.

Hi Dan,

Apart from the large wing lettering, decals were laser printed onto clear decal film.  I used the decal artwork from the Roden 1/32 scale plastic kit for the fin serial and fuselage lettering.  I can send the jpgs over if you like.  The Stars and Bars artwork was downloaded from the VMC website - I love that you can download markings and paper pattern sheets from there for all the Magnificent Flying Machine range to avoid cutting the plan up.

That looks very smart Mike.

I'm a fan of adding the odd, carefully chosen small detail to KS type models (e.g. inked-on cowling panel lines, a pretend exhaust-pipe, etc) while steering clear of the fine detail expected and rewarded in Open (e.g. scale pitot tubes, masterpiece instrument panels, etc).  I reckon a handful of these minor, almost amateur-looking things are well within the spirit of KS - I was certainly weighing down my KK and Veron models with loads of scale extras when I was twelve!  They're fun to do and certainly add, lightly at least, to the overall impression of the subject aeroplane.  Any minor penalties incurred would hopefully be outweighed by extra points for character.  Smiley

Oh so nice Mike!  I think that is very fair comment Jon....I always felt that adding bit of detail in my formative years put my stamp on the model I had built and set it a lilltle apart from those of some of my peers.   But the KS event is a remarkably relaxed affair,  so al will be well.

The Bristol Scout is finally done, and for good order I've put the piccies of the completed model on the last page of its own build thread: http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_forum/index.php?topic=19935.msg232899#msg232899 but will pop one in here anyway.  Grin

Taking it to Nijmegen - not entered in anything, but a lovely big hall for some trimming fun.
