How about this for a camo scheme then?  ;D



That's the RA's 'smoke rings' overlaid on the RAF's repaired wing of the SM-77. The smoke rings are a home printed, re-sized decal scanned from a Taurus original, with the repair areas cut out after the decal was applied. Yes, that's the WHOLE wing covered in a decal, and no, I didn't do it all in one piece!  ;D

Then there's a home printed triple FA fasces decal which has been roughly overpainted with Mid Stone and then an RAF B Type roundel on top of that. It was a bit complicated.....  ;)
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! :)

I've got the other wing to do yet. That'll be another whole evening I won't ever get back............... :(

But it does look JUST like I intended a long time ago when I bought the S-55X kit.  ;D
