Now can I breath again - the decals didn't disintegrate! ;D

Looks very smart and the camo suits her very well! :thumbsup: Certainly worth the wait!
Yes, friend! Thank you so much!  :laugh:  It was glorious watching things come together as I put those on...

This is hands down my favorite model of my collection.  :laugh:

 :drink: :cheers: :party:

Thanks, y'all!! Glad you like it.

 And just in the nick of time, too, right?! Down to the wire... 2 outs in the 9th inning, etc etc..  It's almost like something from a movie..  ;D 

Anyway, I want to build another but it'll be in 1/72...   ;)

That came out very nice indeed, all the masking work paid off, great camo! Also, the pilot and cockpit look very good too!  :cheers:

Thanks! It was a sketchy deal going in.. I've never done anything like that. I've painted camo before but with brushes and just two color. The simple addition of a third color changes the whole approach drastically. 

Glad you like the little buddy! He was the one of the very first things I did when I started. Had to get that cool helmet stuff goin on.   :laugh: :laugh:
