Ummmm yeah, I may have got a bit exuberant with the old hairy stick.
But that's the beauty of acrylics, it just lick washed off.

Heh heh, no.  No cats here.  They know better than to come near me.
I used my Nan's technique - lick a hanky and then rub.  For best results do it in public with the subject squirming in embarrassment.

So I started putting on the transfers today.
The ones I am using are from a 1/72 airliner with "real" windows.  The decals therefore have cutouts to fit over those windows.
I filled and painted over the 'dynes windows and so printed some graduated window effect decals to fit under the ones from the airliner.

While these worked they look too much like the NMF finish on the lower half to the thing and so I am going to have to come up with something to put over the top.

A bit more transferring.  One side at a time.  White is very slightly tacky and I don't want to risk fingerprints.  I might have to bring it into the warm for a day or two to bake it off (It won't fit in my dehydrator).
I have also polished off the sandpaper texture on the wings and tails and cleared them.
Fronts and rears of the nacelles are separate parts and are resplendent in alclad chrome.
Rotor blades were looking acceptable in Dulux spray on chrome until I gave them a coat of clear.  They now look like cheap silver paint.  Hmmmmmmm.   :angry:

Thanks guys.
I put another coat od Dulux spray on chrome over the clear on the rotors and they went back to looking acceptable.  Lesson learnt.
I also did more decaling.
