Thanks guys.
Decalling is finished now (apart from doing something about the windows).

Oh YEAH!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That looks the BUSINESS!  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Five years ago I would have found that funny, scooter. :-\

Unfortunately, for the last four years, I've had to deal with real paedophiles every day (not mere child sex offenders) & have had the unpleasant experience of reading Police reports & victims statements. It kinda takes the humour out of that scene, I'm afraid. :(

Not your fault, just life throwing the reality in my face too frequently. Sorry!

The Rotodyne is coming along VERY nicely.  I'm impressed.

That is looking great!!!!  I have to admit, when I saw that picture it looked like a submarine with a stubby cannon on the front...........

Re: Airplane.... funny coincidence, i just watched that about 3 days ago and saw those scenes...wow... that would never even remotely pass these days. Thing is, that sort of humor wasn't exactly off limits around that time period and I've seen it in other things as well.

Yeah, I see what you mean.  One day I'll whiff one of the AMT Yellow Submarine kits.

Womby - I don't know how you can do that and not be badly affected by it.  Kudos.

I printed the new decals for the windows today.  These will go over the top of what is there.  I will cut each one individually from the sheet of clear decal paper so it will take some time to apply them.
However, once they are on I can clear the whole thing and then proceed with the canopy and the fiddly bits and then it will be completed.

To understand completely, I would need a little explanation: do "windows" mean "lateral windows" and does "canopy" mean "glazed nose"? :unsure:

Yes.

I am not happy with the transfers (decals) I made for the passenger windows in the sides of the fuselage.  I have made some more which I will put over the top of the ones on there.
By canopy I mean the glazed nose of the aircraft.  I have to paint the framing and then glue it on.
